Over the past three days week, this site has been hit hundreds thousands of times by Googlers and other searchers looking for more information on the girl in the Toyota Venza commercial. (“That’s not a real puppy.”) The daughter in the 30-second spot is played by actress Allyn Rachel. Ever the slave to my readers, I did a quick search on YouTube and found a couple of videos of Rachel stretching her funny bone in some skits for the comedy troupe the Groundlings.

Googlers, enjoy.
