Plot / Description

"New Toyota Yaris Hybrid | The Musical City" 
We transformed Prague's historic street signs into an iconic playlist for our New Yaris Hybrid experience. Discover what happened as we cast our singing stars. After changing several street signs throughout the city with song titles, Toyota set up a special Yaris Hybrid which a GPS controlled playlist. The streets the driver turned down would cause the stereo to play that song.

Hello Natalia. 
I'm Matias. 
Let's have a sing! 
Ha ha. Thank you. 
Why on Earth are you changing this? 
 
(Uptown Girl Lyrics) 
Uptown girl 
She's been living in her uptown world 
I bet she never had a backstreet guy 
I bet her mama never told her why 
I'm gonna try for an uptown girl 
She's been living in her white bred world 
 
(Locked Out of Heaven Lyrics) 
Whoa oh oh, yeah yeah yeah 
Cause you make me feel like 
I've been locked out of heaven 
For too long 
 
(Karma Chameleon Lyrics) 
Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon 
You come and go 
You come and go 
 
(Heart of Glass Lyrics) 
Once I had a love and it was a gas 
Soon turned out had a heart of glass 
Seemed like the real thing, only to find 
 
(I Like to Move It Lyrics) 
I like to move it, move it 
I like to move it, move it 
I like to move it, move it 
You like to move it 
 
(Total Eclipse of the Heart Lyrics) 
And I need you now tonight 
And I need you more than ever 
And if you only hold me tight 
We'll be holding on... 
Together we can take it to the end of the line 
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time 
I really need you tonight 
Forever's gonna start tonight 
Once upon a time I was 
I was falling in love

Written Text

To select the cast for the new Yaris Hybrid TV campaign we held special singing auditions. 
On June 6th, we changed the centre of Prague into a playlist. 
New Yaris Hybrid presents The Musical City 
The stereo was connected to the GPS. 
Whenever the drivers changed street, the song changed too. 
Fall in love with driving again
