Growing up, did you want to be an Astronaut? The boy in this commercial for Toyota’s new Rav4 does. The ad, entitled “Wish Granted” www.toyota.com/, features Kaley Cuoco from CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory,” as a genie granting wishes to the Henderson family. The son wishes to become an astronaut and the family takes off into space with their Rav4 as their spaceship. This is just one of the many things the family does in the “let’s go places” motto from Toyota.

Dan Honig, COO of Astronaut.com, said: “We are thrilled to hear about how space travel is becoming increasingly popular with companies today. With new technological advancements, other companies will be piggy backing off of AXE’S cleverly titled ‘AASA’ campaign and sending people into space!”
