Final Fantasy meets Toyota in this Chocobo-inspired commercial

Japan’s biggest RPG series. Japan’s biggest car company. What do you get when you put them together? Yellow Aqua X-Urban cruising around to the Chocobo theme. Where are the Materia slots?

We’ve seen some great car/video game collaborations over the years, “Mario Kart and Mercedes GLA” comes to mind, but this new one is also special. Rather than romp around the countryside on gigantic birds, our Final Fantasy heroes instead turn to the smooth ride of yellow Toyotas as they glide over rolling hills to a charming, familiar theme song.

Final Fantasy XV has taken a lot of heat for leaning on its central car a little too much, but this commercial is just silly.

My only question is how do you catch one? Can you distract them with greens, or do they run away at the first sign of trouble in battle?
