In a previous entry I talked about viral marketing being used with a cryptozoological theme. I found another one for a Chinese market Toyota. While some viral ads are actually hoaxes, this one was an approved Toyota ad.
In this ad for the Toyota Vios, a creature resembling a giant squid or octopus or some kind of many-tentacled beast uses the car to bait an unsuspecting jogger.
Fish or cut bait indeed…
