“What drives you?” (AKA Trading Places)

This is a sponsored post presented in association with Toyota.

. .

Toyota have been in touch with their latest video campaign #whatdrivesyou – Paul and Katie, and forgive us for thinking of the Eddie Murphy, Dan Aykroyd classic Trading

Well, a little bit.

The video sees our very own odd couple of Katie Taylor and Paul O’Connell spending a day in each others shoes and shooting the breeze to try to work out what drives them. They stop short of completely swapping places but really nice to get to see Katie on a rugby field and big Paulie in the ring, he throws quite a right-hook at 2:06.


Major props to the director and the team behind the short for capturing the two usually shy retiring characters so naturally. Awkward chatshow hosts take note, this is how to work with Irish sporting legends!

The next video will be out in November and will see Dublin GAA star Stephen Cluxton and Ireland rugby star Jonathan Sexton “trading places”. See for more.
