According to this commercial, there's a cute office lady that lives inside your Toyota's navigation system. She knows how to get you places and is always willing to help. Seriously, why would we make this stuff up?
These following commercials are for the Toyota T-Connect system sold in Japan. It's a lot like GM's OnStar or the MyFord Touch. When voice recognition doesn't work, or you need turn-by-turn directions, you press a button and call somebody. We can only imagine that it's very useful when you're talking a complex language like Japanse.

I've always wondered what the person working for a call center looks like. Maybe we can play out that secret agent kidnapping scenario from the Bruce Wills movie.

This Japanese operator has a very cute office lady uniform and likes to do yoga barefoot all day. The positions she can do… so flexible and original. During her back exercises, our beloved OL also says she can direct you to the nearest hospital or call a repair team if your Toyota suddenly stops working.

The weird thing about this service is that T-Connect can also read you the latest news. At least that's what the woman says right before talking about Lady Gaga's new dress. We're pretty sure she said it was made from pork meat.

The second ad is even weirder, as we get to see her reading a comic book for girls and also powdering her katana sword. Every good sword needs powdering. Otherwise, it will get rusty!

Somehow, I think the Japanese people evolved without a sense of shame. This kind of commercial is too embarrassing to be shown outside of Japan, but the general idea of having a small helper inside the dash is great. Do you think it would work in America? Maybe they can do one for the Super Bowl with Kate Upton and Charlotte MacKinney playing Twister in there.
