English Description
The Toyota Aygo is a new vehicle to the South African market. It is an “entry level” vehicle, perfect for the first car or the first time buyer. Which is why, when tasked to launch the Aygo, we got to thinking about young people and what it was like before you got your first set of wheels. That awkward, restricted time when you were reliant on your parents or friends or the goodwill of your family to get to where you wanted to go. That time in your life when it was like you still had your umbilical cord attached.

In this advert we see many young people getting awkwardly caught by their umbilical cord in daily life situations. A young man stands in a butchers holding his cord sees 2 young women stepping into a Toyota Aygo without theirs attached. He goes to a Toyota dealer where he steps into an Aygo, His cord then falls off and he drives away.
