Toyota Presents: The Avalon Singers

Sure, Toyota’s got its difficulties right now, but you’d never know it at the Toyota Avalon display at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. This quartet, known as the Toyota Avalon singers, outlines the luxurious benefits of the 2011 Avalon in song and gooey monologue. This will either make you want to buy an Avalon or avoid all future Toyota displays.

That comment I made on a previous post on Toyota about not heckling the people working at the auto show? Well in this case I can't really blame someone. Yikes.

Daniel

One word, desperate!

sheth

they were doing this for the Prius at Philly auto show. It was kind of sad.

I listened to three second and I threw up...

Twice.

I really enjoyed it but then again I'm a Ivy educated white collar professional who enjoys the creative arts. Domestic car owners are not in this category so I can understand why they would be turned-off. To each his own.

What a dumb comment. So only Ivy League, white collar professionals enjoy the creative arts? Interesting...so we are to assume they buy all the import cars and none of the domestics? Seriously stupid comment. Grey Poupon anyone?

Ira Goldman

I did not state that only Ivy league graduates enjoy the arts. Your lack of basic reading comprehension skills lead you to believe that's what I wrote. The only thing that is stupid is your baseless comment, a product of you of course.

Saw them at the Charity Preview and really enjoyed them. Bass was awesome and the singing quite good. I liked the retro appeal and enjoyed someone putting the "show" back into auto show!

Dave Stone

Just left Chicago preview and I'm completely surprised by the haters. You must work for Ford. Loved all the talent. The stompers too.

Eh, this bashing of Toyota is getting old and boring.

It's a pleasant song and the singers sound good.

Can we get back to talking about real automotive news?

H

What is a Ivy education anyway? And what are the creative arts?

Wharton

If you have to ask then you are not deserving of...

Derrick G

Ira,

I fully understood what you said and it was pompous and arrogant and obnoxious. Your ethnicity and education has nothing to do with enjoyment of creative arts and your mentioning either was totally uncalled for. And this song was neither especially creative or artistic. It was sappy and vapid. Oh wait. Now I think I've found your TRUE relation to it.

Nelson Lu

The Volt dance was probably a better idea.

H

You're right Wharton, I don't deserve a Ivy education. That educational process is reserved for those who aren't knowledgeable enough to understand what is even wrong with the statement "a Ivy education".

Tony

Is Ivy is the same place G.W. Bush educated himself on nukelar science?

"Domestic car owners are not in this category..." [Ivy]
Ira, is full of BS as everyone knows that people drive all sorts of cars.

Ira's correct though; nobody who picks a CTS-V over a Corolla could possibly have any education whatsoever. They're the lowest scum of the earth.

Let's all bow down to Ira and her superioritiness - since we're not worthy and no one else here has an education.

We're forced to submit. Thanks for giving us a moment to shine in the light of your aura, Ira. We'll never see such brilliance again.

I was at the Philly show last week Toyota shad a group singing a song for the 2011 Sienna. Though I am a Toyota fan I was not particularly fond of the singing for that vehicle nor the one for Avalon. To me they didn't need it. I think Toyota did better when they had the Toyota Live at the shows. At least you could win gifts.

Ira Goldman

Derrick G,
I never mentioned my ethnicity. It appears you have having difficulty masking your racist tendency's.

Mike

Ira Goldman is not a difficult name to decipher one's ethnicity. Clearly you are a Filipino.

Also, singing will never have any bearing on which car I decide to purchase.

Sidenote: It's funny that the majority of Toyota's recent problems have stemmed from their decision to manufacture vehicles in the USA. Just sayin'...

"That comment I made on a previous post on Toyota about not heckling the people working at the auto show? Well in this case I can't really blame someone. Yikes."

Yes, by all means, heckle some hard-working musicians! That will surely solve all of your problems with Toyota's corporate structure! Who knew that making nasty comments about a few talented singers would be all it took to solve sudden acceleration problems...

Hybrit

Ira Goldman is not as educated and refined as he wants everyone to believe. The use of the word "tendency's" instead of tendencies reveals that he's really a knucklehead.

Mark

Hybrit you beat me to it. Agreed.

JM

Tony, before you bash a President, lean how to spell nuclear.

The first time I listened to "the Avalon song", I went to reading the other blogs after 10 seconds of listening.

I'd never heard Toyota was doing badly. I thought they were one of the companies that was still doing really, really well right now, actually. I mean, come on, their cars rock!
