Toyota wanted to create truly special visuals for their appearance at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Since a car company with a forward-thinking reputation demands an equally innovative approach to filmmaking, Toyota and Saatchi & Saatchi turned to the visual powerhouse created by the trans-Atlantic alliance of Blinkink and Hornet. Together, we created four films to tell the remarkable stories of extraordinary Toyotas and their owners.


This one, "The 1,000,000km Courier" by Yves Geleyn celebrates a Danish courier's Hiace van, which has covered more than 1,000,000km and is still going strong.
