Some elements of this text to consider:
- The use of light in the ad – the shiny highlights on the truck and the bright background behind the text on the upper right which helps the text stand out.
- Although not highly saturated the colour palette is mostly brown and green which matches the outdoor location and theme of the ad.
- The text on the bottom right mentions that it is built in Texas – a suitable place for outdoor pursuits. The mention of Texas may also have been done to draw attention away from the truck’s Japanese roots. Toyota may feel that stereotypically-conservative truck owners may be more likely to buy a truck that has at least a nominal American connection.
- The setting of the photo – appropriate for this outdoor-themed truck ad. The setting matches the text on the bottom right which states that the truck is “Ready to take on hunting, fishing or whatever the great outdoors brings…”
