    These commercials make the voices in my head start to sound like a combination of Lewis Black, Dennis Leary and Joe Pesci.


    And to think...some stupid f*ck went to college for 4 years and makes $$$ to think up this stupid sh*t. I hope he buys a Lexus and then gets pulverized by a redneck in a 1979 Ford F-150 with rusty plow and beaded seat covers.

    [QUOTE=DDNYjets;4283683]LOL. You guys do realize it is just a commercial.

    And yes, some people do actually get cars as gifts.

    +1 For the class warfare.[/QUOTE]

    Do you know anyone that has?
    I have yet to see anyone with a bow on their car, and I've lived in Bergen & Morris counties for 30 years.

    It's not the point, it's annoying as ****, especially during these economic times, and ESPECIALLY during football games.

    They should be airing these commercials on Monocle TV...

    The worst part is, they always extend these ****ing sales into January, so we can expect another month of this pompous hoity-toity douchebaggery.

    They need to run these back to back with the old Toyota "Saved by Zero" commercials.

    +1. Now, those things were SIGNIFICANTLY more annoying than the Lexus spots. I remember diving for the remote any time those came on.

    Thanks for putting that abomination in my head again, btw.

    Let's also not forget the media saturation with these spots last year. Yeah, the chick in Pomplamoose is cute, but these commercials made you want to punch walls.

    check the latest retail figures, consumer spending is way up this year compared to the last 3 years (2008-2010).

    im not saying these lexus commercials don't suck... they do clearly suck. but the timing is probably better in 2011 than in 2009.

    [QUOTE=Traitor Jay & the Woodies;4283272]The most offensive thing about this year's campaign is the whole assumption that that stupid jingle is so iconic that by just hearing the notes, the person becomes aware that they are getting a Lexus. I realize that is the cherry on top of the pretentious sundae, but it really is irritating to me.





    This one bugs me the most. The chick is very cute but her reaction makes me want to throw the [B]remote through the plasma[/B].[/QUOTE]

    How pretentious!

    Would you then have the butler clean up the glass?

    :P

    I thought that was the Jets motto for the Sanchez passer rating?

    I know people who got cars as for their Sweet 16, graduation gifts, etc. Nobody got a Lexus though. LOL.

    Like I said it is a commercial. If somebody lets a commercial get them upset then that person must have pretty thin skin. I think America as a whole has become way too hyper-sensitive to every little thing.

    No politician is going to put money back in anyone's pocket or food on their table. Only person that can help someone is themselves.

    How could you be so cruel, as to remind me of those godawful commercials?


    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVVT-wumaLk&feature=related[/url]



    And they were on FOREVER. I remember the opening Thursday of March Madness, when I had the 4 TV setup going, I almost lost my mind by the time the last game was over.

    [QUOTE=Polidore22;4283162]How about the one where she gets a ~$300 smart phone as a "joke gift" that then leads to the real gift.. a new lexus.[/QUOTE]


    That drew an audible "Seriously?" from me the first time I saw it.

    Even worse than Hyundai's annoying campaign this holiday season.

    The way Hyundai saturates the public with just god awful commercials is really disturbing. I have never seen one good Hyundai commercial, they are all cringe worthy.
