Young boy wins stare-off with man checking out his mum in latest Toyota Kluger campaign

A young boy, an attractive woman and a keen-eyed man are at the centre of the campaign for the new-look Toyota Kluger.

Created by Saatchi&Saatchi the latest work sees a woman driving her new car around the city, drawing attention from bystanders.

When she stops to put on lipstick, a man begins to stare, clearly intrigued. He is forced to redirect his eyeline when the woman’s son puts down his window to confront the observer with a stone-faced death stare.

The ‘Built for families. Designed for attention’ campaign aims to demonstrate the Kluger’s functionality as well as its design features.

The campaign will run across TV, social, outdoor and digital.
