Remember this girl? Her name is Christine Chan, and she's the external affairs officer of Toyota Hong Kong. We met her during a recent trip to the Chinese administrative region. She was kind enough to fetch us at the airport and accompany us during the first day of our stay there.
If the above photo looks familiar, that's because we posted it on our Facebook page. She was such a hit among our followers that the picture collected more than 23,000 likes and more than 500 comments. With that kind of virality, it wasn't surprising that even her own colleagues saw the photo in their own news feed.
Here's the best part: According to Christine, Toyota Hong Kong was so amused with her newfound social-media popularity that she was asked to do a photo shoot with the Ractis subcompact MPV. The resulting images are neatly compiled below.
At first glance, one would easily mistake said photos for print ads, but Christine told TopGear.com.ph that these are merely for Toyota Hong Kong's own Facebook page. Well, that's a shame. We think these fine snapshots deserve a page or two in a glossy magazine. What say you?
To digress, we wonder if a car like the Ractis would be warmly received in our market. Again, your thoughts?
