      Not sure if that's a flat-chested woman or a man. If that's a flat-chested woman, then this thread should have the NSFW warning, right?

      I'd say they're real.

      Not that i spent a great deal of time looking, or whatever, but there is a definite bulge where one wouldn't find one on a woman.

      WTF is correct. Atleast they could have used a girl with a nice rack. Just saying.

      Perhaps the idea is something like this: The new Auris is exiting/pretty or other superlatives and isn't what you expect from Toyota (according to them of course), while that "rack" isn't what you expect from a girl.

      I'm surprised and disappointed it took this long for someone to read the article. Still probably NSFW though.

      Commercial meaning:

      "The new Auris looks sexy and exciting, but if you take one home you will get the shaft."

      While there is no actual nudity, I would still consider this NSFW. They do a very good job convincing you it's a woman, and it's only the last second when you realize that it might not be. All it takes is someone walking by to think you're watching naked girlies on the computer.

      Okay, for those NOT following along:
      IT"S A GUY. There is no nudity. While it may take some explaining to random passers-by, it's SFW.

      What I've always wondered is, when is watching a video ever safe for work?

      And, that commercial is JDM, they have way different standards about nudity than basically the rest of the world. They don't give a ****.
