Customized Toyota Sienna Gets Spongy
The Toyota Sienna just became the coolest minivan ever. It was recently customized to look like SpongeBob himself. The lower half of the minivan was painted the same yellow to match SpongeBob’s sponge-color. Large, oval, cartoon eyeballs were placed on the windshield. A wide-open gullet was painted on the hood, complete with SpongeBob’s trademark two-front-teeth. It’s the coolest minivan ever to eight year olds, but we here at Toyota of Gastonia think there’s a kid in all of us. Right?
The SpongeBob Sienna was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show. USA Today explained the concept is “meant to draw attention to the upscale minivan, a vehicle segment that has been challenged by a lingering ‘mom jeans’ image as crossovers SUVs stay in vogue.”
Also, Toyota has an ongoing partnership with the SpongeBob franchise. The customized Toyota Sienna will help promote the upcoming movie SpongeBob Squarepants: Sponge Out Of Water. It will be taken on a multi-city tour to get kids pumped about the movie.
