Band and song info for the new Toyota Hybrid Range ‘Always A Better Way’ YouTube and TV commercial.
Toyota UK’s new ad for their range of hybrid cars includes the song ‘Movin’ on Up’ by the Scottish rock band Primal Scream.
Not to be confused with the rather different sounding ‘Moving On Up’ by dance-pop group M People, ‘Movin’ On Up’ features on Primal Scream’s third studio album ‘Screamadelica’.
Released in 1991, this album would finally propel the Glasgow-based musicians into the mainstream and commercial success. Movin’ On Up also appears on the bands 1992 EP ‘Dixie-Narco’ and reached number 11 in the UK singles chart.
Watching Toyota’s latest TV ad, I can’t help but be vaguely reminded of the Ford ‘Unlearn’ advert as the Japanese car manufacture tells us: ‘It’s time to reinvent tradition, to redefine fun and keep moving forward.’
The ‘Always A Better Way’ commercial goes on to tell us that over 8 million drivers have so far switched to one of Toyota’s hybrid vehicles and haven’t looked back. Having originally only been an option with their Prius models, Toyota customers can now also choose a hybrid engine for the Yaris, Auris and Rav4 cars.
Toyota uploaded the above video to their UK YouTube page on the 15th of April, 2016.
