Who does the Toyota commercial?
While acting in TV series put Laurel Coppock on the Hollywood map, she became famous for playing Toyota Jan in commercials for Toyota cars.
These commercials are both hilarious and awesome.
She was selected to play Toyota Jan in 2012. Toyota interviewed at least 500 actresses before choosing Coppock for the role of Toyota Jan. The actress signed a one-year contract with the company.
Toyota was pleased with the actress's performance and she was given an offer to reprise the role in more Toyota commercials.
When the actress was asked about how she felt about a character that only stays on the screen for 30 seconds, she said,
She feels very well rounded and thought out. They have a long bio and back story for Jan. When the crew comes together, it feels like we are back shooting our show. It’s like Jan comes to life every three months and then we go our own way.
Did the Toyota lady have a baby?
The actress is known for keeping her private matters away from the public. However, her pregnancy became a matter of public interest after her baby bump was spotted in one of her commercials for Toyota in 2014.
Many people wondered if her pregnancy was real or if she was wearing a costume for the commercial. Laurel Coppock was indeed pregnant in real life.
When Laurel Coppock was pregnant six years ago, Toyota and its ad agency, Saatchi & Saatchi L.A., decided to write the storyline for its new commercials to include Jan’s pregnancy.

In 2018, Jan’s baby bump was spotted in Toyota commercials again. Unlike the first time, when her pregnancy was written into Jan's story; the producers did not include her second pregnancy in the storyline for the TV advert.
In Toyota’s Ready Set Go! ad campaign, producers did not want to include Laurel's pregnancy in Jan's storyline. Her character appeared in commercials wearing loose clothing and held items in front of her belly to perhaps hide the baby bump.
Toyota finally confirmed Jan’s pregnancy via Twitter in March 2018 in response to a Twitter user's question about her pregnancy.
Yes, Jan is pregnant! We are thrilled to welcome a new member into the Toyota family.
The name and identity of her second child are yet to be revealed to the public.
