While (thankfully) it’s not an SUV, I’m a little disappointed to see Orlando Bloom backing a car in Asia that features very little in the way of green technology. DiCaprio did it in Japan with the Prius. Couldn’t Bloom apply his values to the same industry?

Check out the commercial below with Bloom as the official endorser of the 2008 Toyota Corolla Altis for the Asian markets.

    Maybe they didn’t want him for the Hybrid or any other “green” car. Pirate’s not “Hybrid” material. At least you know he’s putting the money to good use. That’s what matters.

    A new statement in Toyota ads. Be the star. am an all Toyota Corolla Altis fan and owner. Want to have the new altis, and just attended the launching last Friday on a Toyota dealership here in Pampanga.

    Orly elegantly portrayed as a new image model for Altis just what Brad Pitt did in the previous model.

    The ad is very irritating; and so is the expression-less face of orlando bloom.
