This video captures "very human" moments that can occur in daily life when people become distracted by other things. Presented here are a succession of moments that viewers can unwittingly sympathize with from having experienced themselves, including a cute baby becoming distracted by a camera and running into a bed, a young boy crashing into a pole after becoming focused on a ball, a beautiful girl being swallowed by a wave the instant she turns to smile, or an old woman who has her belongings taken by a dog after being distracted with an acquaintance. The video is comprised of content illustrating human behavior that anyone can experience in daily life regardless of age, gender, or nationality.

Anybody can become distracted. To protect against such moments, the newest (*1) collision avoidance support package Toyota Safety Sense C has been equipped (*2) on the Vitz compact car driven by all types of people. We hope that this video serves to help people realize the importance of safety.

(*1) In Toyota history
(*2) Available as an option for the F"M Package, F, F"Smart Stop Package, and the special spec vehicle F"Smart Style. Comes as a standard feature on all other models.
