Toyota’s “The Sienna Life” Campaign Celebrates Life’s Spontaneous Moments

The adventurous life awaits! “The Sienna Life” campaign, kicking off today, welcomes a refined and versatile minivan featuring bold design, available all-wheel drive, and enhanced fuel efficiency: the all-hybrid and all-new 2021 Toyota Sienna.

“The new campaign is inspired by our guests living their ‘Sienna life’ to the fullest, across a wide range of life stages and activities,” said Cynthia Tenhouse, vice president, Vehicle Marketing and Communications, Toyota Motor North America. “We hope ‘The Sienna Life’ campaign encourages viewers to discover a new appreciation for life’s special moments, no matter how large or small.”

The fully integrated Sienna campaign was developed against Toyota’s long-standing Total Toyota (T2) marketing model, fully considering the transcultural mainstream audiences across America.  Toyota campaigns are integrated through one strategic brief, creative idea, and media plan – and create a cohesive marketing approach inclusive of multicultural marketing and the total market model.  The Tagency team includes Saatchi & Saatchi, Burrell Communications, Conill Advertising and Intertrend, with ZenithMedia placing TV and outdoor media buys.

The campaign showcases a unified style across all creative throughout the Tagency broadcast spots, which are highlighted below:

In the spots created by Saatchi & Saatchi and directed by Dave Meyers, “Lakeside” features a group of girlfriends spontaneously pulling over to jump into a cold lake after one friend dares everyone — even though one opts to stay behind and enjoy the Sienna’s comfort. “Lucky” shows a number of friends arriving to a concert venue in full VIP style, complete with security waving them to premier parking right outside the backstage entrance.

In “Bold Statement,” created by Burrell Communications and directed by The Mill, a hip couple takes the “scenic route” on a drive through the city, giving everyone else an up-close look at their stylish Sienna.

Conill developed two  spots, “Phone” and “Cold,” that highlight the all-new Sienna’s available AWD capabilities allowing passengers to live memorable moments in the outdoors. In “Phone,” friends venture to a forest for a remarkable adventure only to swiftly leave as they discover that bears really can be found in caves. In “Cold,” a couple’s adventure takes them farther and into a colder environment than planned, demonstrating the Sienna’s AWD capability and best-in-class combined miles per gallon (MPG). The spots were directed by Nicolai Fuglsig.

Intertrend created two spots for the campaign: “Marathon,” where a family uses unique features available in the Sienna to relive moments from their favorite Korean drama; and “Team Outing,” which highlights a new way to work remotely and redefine work-life balance thanks to what the Sienna has to offer. The spots were directed by Gevorg Karensky.
