When Toyota released a teaser ad for their "Wish Granted" Super Bowl commercial featuring “Big Bang Theory” star, Kaley Cuoco, they established the premise that she’s a dog-loving, purple-power-suit-wearing, wish-granting genie.

With the release of Toyota’s first official Super Bowl commercial, we got to see Cuoco perform her role as wish granter to a tee, giving the Henderson family all that they’re wishing for, including the dad who asked for the spare tire to be gone, the mother who wished for unlimited chocolates, the daughter who wished for animals to talk, the son who wished he was an astronaut, and the father who wished (again) for unlimited wishes...except that Genie Cuoco thought she heard something else.

The whole point of the commercial is Toyota’s attempt in selling the RAV4 as an SUV that grants its customer’s wishes; it’s a cute approach made cuter with Cuoco’s presence. Let’s just hope that buyers don’t take that notion too literally because once someone does, then it’ll probably be cause for a whole lot of disgruntled customers.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

The RAV4 looks a nice family car. The genie concept is funny commercial and Kaley Couco as a genie is nice. I don’t get the last one; is that a wish of the genie or something like that?
