In February of 2011, Toyota wanted to run this ad as a TV commercial, but was banned from doing so due to “controversial material”. Some people were concerned that the Toyota Rav4 campaign promoted domestic violence, manipulation and other physical concerns. Others simply saw the ad as a simple “cat and mouse” play.
Personally speaking, I believe the ad was just a comedic attempt to show how irresistible the Rav4 is, and that everyone is fighting to own this car.
Whether you believe it was controversial or not, the case remains that the only means of seeing the ad is now on YouTube and it will never air on TV.
