'It's a Vibe' in Toyota's All-New 2025 Camry Campaign

4 June 2024

Launching today, Toyota's new marketing campaign, "It's a Vibe," highlights the all-new 2025 Camry's hybrid powertrain, enhanced safety features, connected technology and features that guarantee to make daily journeys extraordinary. The purely hybrid next generation Camry is offering a combination of power, fuel efficiency, and a new interior design with an athletic exterior style, ready to take on the daily drive.

"Building on its long-standing reputation as the best-selling sedan in the U.S. for over 20 years, this campaign highlights the all-new, all-hybrid 2025 Camry," said Mike Tripp, group vice president of Toyota Marketing. "Toyota is thrilled to unveil our ninth-generation Camry featuring a sleek athletic design and impressive new powertrain backed by the exceptional quality and reliability that is synonymous with the Toyota brand."

The fully integrated Camry campaign was developed using Toyota's long-standing Total Toyota (T2) marketing model. The T2 model integrates efforts to create a cohesive marketing approach inclusive of multicultural marketing and the mainstream market. The T2 agency team includes Saatchi & Saatchi, Burrell Communications Group, Conill, and Intertrend Communications, with Zenith Media placing TV and outdoor media buys.

The campaign showcases a unified style across the T2 agency creative, which is highlighted below:

In the spot titled "My Block," created by Burrell Communications Group, viewers see an all-new Camry turn down a bustling city block and the vibe shifts entering a magical moment that reveals passionate looks of admiration for the Camry, equally deserved by its driver. The spots were directed by Bruce St. Clair.

Intertrend Communications' spot "Trio," directed by Brendan Vaughan, showcases three unique musical artists exploring how their own vibes are amplified behind the wheel of a 2025 Camry. They each drive through city streets before meeting up for their musical performances at a local theatre.

In "Clouds," created by Conill Advertising and directed by Nicolás Méndez, viewers witness the fiery glow of the all-new Camry piercing through the early morning fog. The blast of light transforms the landscape and stirs the city awake, culminating in the driver emerging confidently, ready to take on the day. Additionally, two digital spots, "Wind" and "Flower," accentuate the Camry's racing-inspired features, showcasing its (available) new panoramic moonroof.

For the social media campaign, Conill commissioned an adaptation of an original song exclusively for Toyota, performed by rising Latino music artist Alejo, transforming a typical car review into a melodic masterpiece. This concept merges the allure of the all-new Camry with a captivating rhythm, offering viewers a fresh and engaging way to experience the vehicle. Experience the full video here, with clips appearing on Toyota Latino Facebook and Instagram.

Saatchi & Saatchi created two 30-second broadcast spots titled "Limitless Vibes" and "Groove Thing," directed by TWIN (duo Josh and Jonathan Baker). In "Limitless Vibes," three friends discuss options for their evening out as their 2025 Camry multiplies into three. Each Camry goes for a different "vibe"- from an arcade to a comedy show to an art gallery, with the trio finally heading out for tacos. "Groove Thing" features an all-new Camry driver who magically illuminates a downtown city street as he passes through, nodding his head to the beat of the music. A mesmerizing wave of light swells and sways to the energy of a city grooving to that undeniable new Camry vibe.
