Directed by Ted Melfi of production company brother for Saatchi & Saatchi, this Toyota :60 shares the heartwarming story of a young girl crafting homemade Christmas ornaments, and making multiple trips to a mailbox to send them off to a yet-to-be known recipient. In the last scene, the girl steps out of her mother’s Toyota Highlander and is shocked to see the ornaments displayed on a giant-sized Christmas tree close to the mailbox. Seconds later, her father, a military service member, steps out from behind the tree, and surprises her with his return home, just in time for the holidays.

Rodrigo Prieto lensed the spot, which was edited by Kirk Baxter of Exile. Music/sound house was SOUTH Music and Sound.
