Samurai Rides: Spring Forward to Summer with the 2016 Toyota Rav 4 Hybrid - The Social Media Samurai

This is a pleasant surprise indeed. Samurai Rides gets it’s first time behind the wheel of a new Toyota vehicle to finish out the final days of spring. This is a pleasure for me mainly because Toyota is the go to car brand of my parents. The Avalon and the Camry have held my parents down for years now. Even beyond that, the streets of my home town New Rochelle are full of Toyota rides. With all that being said I’ve had no experience with the Rav 4 so it’s still a fresh experience and I’m ready to share it with you.

From as long as I can remember watching TV, brands have looked to hook your attention and spark your interest in their products via the cosign of high-profile personalities and main stream celebrities. The celebrity endorsement is a class marketing method that essentially tries to tell you that if it’s good enough for this person then you should want it too and for years this has worked.

Reaching Back For Pieces Of Me — Medium

New Rochelle, NY has been home my entire life. 34 years of existence, born, raised and shaped by the middle class suburban upbringing just 30 minutes north of New York City. With that being said, from a very young age I knew that where I’m from went deeper then that.
