Toyota's close call with deer

Toyota 86 in close call with deer

Drifting champion Ken Gushi was filming a commercial for US car company Scion to promote its FR-S (known as the Toyota 86 here), when he expectedly crossed paths with a deer.

It shouldn’t have come as a surprise to the film crew – they were shooting in a national park after all – but no one could have predicted the outcome of a mere millisecond escape for the deer.

Taking no credit for his driving ability, Gushi praised the Scion’s handling and brakes for helping him avoid disaster.

Scion obviously pays well for your services.
