Lexus F – sexier than a wet woman in your armsSun, 11 May 2014
The Lexus F will distract you from even the most appealing event. Apparently
Why do people buy a Lexus? In truth, most buy because a Lexus offers impressive build quality, understated looks, lots of toys and a bullet-proof reputation for reliability; a Lexus is a luxury car buy that is driven by the head, rather than the heart.
So how do Lexus make new buyers see a Lexus as something more than an accountant’s choice? How do they let the world know you can have a car that both your heart and head agree on?
Lexus’ chosen route is to make the Lexus sexy and appealing, so they’re running an advertising campaign that shows Lexus F models can distract a man from even the most appealing of activities – a beautiful woman, a lads night out – and there’s evidence that a Lexus F driver really does get the woman (or, indeed, two of them).
All this visual imagery is set to a soundtrack that sounds a lot like Massive Attack and throws in a few subtle squealing tyres and a female voiceover that declares: “Temptation comes in many heart-pounding forms, but only one letter”.
Will it be enough to make a dent in BMW M, Mercedes AMG or even Jaguar R?
Who knows, but it’s a brave try.
