We Look Back at Explosions in the Sky’s Best Toyota Commercials

Throughout Explosion in the Sky’s fantastic commercial-ography, the Texas post-rock band has provided the soundtrack to some of the most stunning overhead views of Toyota automobiles.

Today, we look back at the very best of these commercials. Join us as we go off-roading in the mountains of corporate and artistic synergy.

5. Toyota Rav4

The gentle beginnings of EITS’ “First Breath from a Coma” are the perfect introduction to Toyota’s crossover SUV, the RAV4. The dueling guitars perfectly encapsulate the RAV4’s Direct Shift 8-Speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission, as well as optional All-Wheel Drive.

4. Toyota Prius Prime

 

Explosions in the Sky’s “Postcard From 1952” is an excellent backdrop to introduce you to the affordable, gas-saving Toyota Prius Prime. As the drums kick in, you’ll always think of the Prius’ amazing 54 mpg, and as the song reaches its climax, you’ll know the Prius is available in seven briliant colors, including Supersonic Red.

3. Toyota Camry Hybrid

Explosions in the Sky’s “Remember Me As a Time of Day”” is the perfect match for the award-winning Toyota Camry. The sweeping majesty of Explosions in the Sky perfectly matched the Camry ripping up and down the countryside even though you’ve certainly never driven it anywhere that majestic. The emotionality of the song will give you hope that you can secure financing for a Blue Streak Metallic Camry, available at local Toyota dealerships now.

2. Toyota Tacoma

The rugged, 4-wheel drive Toyota Tacoma will get you out of any jam, including Explosion in the Sky’s “So Long, So Lonesome.” The piano work, atypical of EITS later work, perfectly complements the machined alloy wheels of the Tacoma’s powerful V6 engine and towing capability.

1. Toyota Corolla

The one you’ve been waiting for. The classic Corolla driving across the countryside as Explosions in the Sky’s “Your Hand in Mine” gently plays in the background. What better way to celebrate all of our interconnectedness than to get 2020’s “Green Car of the Year”? This is the song that gets people into Toyota Corollas.
