When you want to show the world that a sports car is capable of more than conquering a canyon road, doing burnouts, and zero-to-60 runs, perhaps you want to try flying off a prepped ramp and into a pile of boxes.
Toyota collaborated with Formula D champions Papadakis Racing for an action-packed commercial titled “The Pitch,” which takes place in Los Angeles. As part of the ad campaign, the automaker recruited stuntman Andy Bell to jump a 2021 Toyota GR Supra 100 feet in the air for the final scene.
They filmed the epic stunt on a peninsula in the sleepy town of San Pedro near the Port of Los Angeles. The production team built a landing pad made of large cardboard boxes and covered the wooden ramp with powder to help the car launch better. In the scene, the Toyota GR Supra clears a 100-foot jump before crashing into the cardboard boxes. For the full story, check out this article from Motor Trend.
