It's not often that you meet a car with a personality like the Toyota Yaris. Ahead of Red Nose Day in benefit of Comic Relief this year, Toyota consulted with the iconic Mr Tickle for the design of its "Ha-ha-hatchback."
Bearing a licence plate that reads "TICK LME," the car challenges people to find its most sensitive spots. When tickled, the car's red nose lights up, the car laughs, rocks back and forth and squirts water from its washers as if it's crying from too much stimulation. Although the hilarious car is the one that's being tickled, people can't help but laugh, smile and be amused by this vehicle. As an official Red Nose Day partner, Toyota will be touring this comical vehicle at various venues in the UK.
