The print work will also appear in major market daily and alternative newspapers, featuring photos of all three Scion models, prices and dealer information, according to the agency.

A radio push is set to launch in key markets. One of the spots uses original music from DJ Jazzy Jeff, one-half of Will Smith’s 1980s rap act, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.

The tC sports coupe will be available at California dealerships July 2.

Campaign spending is undisclosed. Scion’s adspend was $2 million last year and $8 million through March 2004, per Nielsen Monitor-Plus.
