Toyota keep airing Takuya Kimura car commercials despite license suspension

A suspended license and being caught twice speeding have not stopped Toyota from pulling their Takuya Kimura commercials from TV, reports Chunichi Sports and Sponichi Annex.

 

On March 14 it had been announced the SMAP star had been caught speeding twice, once in September 2011 and again in January 2012 when he was caught 20km over the speed limit and had his license suspended.

 

Toyota have been running commercials featuring Kimura since October 2011.  On March 15 representatives from the company had announced it was regrettable Kimura had broken road rules, but they have decided not to pull the ads since the Johnny’s talent has shown true remorse at his actions.
