Previously we had posted an "Open Happiness" commercial that was produced by Coca-Cola that contained many "MJ-related" themes, and we wondered if there could be some type of connection.
While researching, I stumbled across this ad for the 2010 Toyota Prius, which came out in May 2009:
This one also had many themes that we tie back to MJ - nature, butterflies, tinkerbell-like fairies, children emerging from flowers, similar to the waking sleepyhead Wizard of Oz "munchkins" emerging out of flowers, "armies" of people, etc.
But I had hesitated posting because I didn't see enough of a connection.
Turns out that the song being song in the commercial is "Let Your Love Flow", by Petra Haden. Interestingly enough, Petra Haden, did a cover of "Thriller":
Hmm..a little more of a connection now. Perhaps a coincidence.
Then while browsing images from This Is It, something caught my eye in the below shot (click to enlarge):
You can see the word "Toyota" in the background.
Pure coincidence, or could of MJ had an interest in "short films" to be designed for commercials and did, or was planning to work with various sponsors?
Bit o' trivia: AEG owns the "Toyota Sports Center"
UPDATE: The readers have discovered even more of a connection - Here is an article about MJ getting into a Prius limo. Interestingly enough, this article links to another about Coca-Cola adding 120 hybrid trucks to their feet.
