    They went from creatively funny to absurdly strange, in those last 5 above. So, so pathetic. That's gotta turn away some small group of prospective buyers right there. I couldn't finish watching all of them - stupid waste of time. I assume those are for the web?

    Point is well taken. A very good thread.

    How about: A giant Tsunami is coming to the west coast.
    You all have 5 gallons each to get out of its way.

    A bit too survivalist? perhaps..

    The CT6 plug in isn't available until next spring.

    I'd opt for a motorcycle/scooter to drive between the stuck cars.

    My other vehicle is a 2012 BMW R1200R....It gets me around greater Los Angeles in a
    fraction of the time. About 1/3, courtesy of lane splitting. So, I very much agree.

    Doesn't get the mileage of my 2005 Gen 2, though. Beemer manages only about 45MPG.

    Cheers, Steve

    The censorship and gaming ads are weak. I found the others pretty funny.

    How many has Lexus had?

    The CT6 PHEV isn't out yet, but there was that Cadilacized Volt available as a stop gap response to Tesla. It sold...poorly, but I believe that means Caddy had more plug ins than Lexus.

    I feel my braincells dying from watching those spots. HORRIBLE. And yet I watched them all, maybe hoping at least one would redeem themselves and fix this feeling, but no. I did like the mini gas can commercial but the ones with that guy on stage are just crazy bad. I am not even sure what demographic they are trying to target, maybe Sunday morning television church watchers :D.

    Yeah it's targeted advertising. So basically if you're in the demographic, you're more likely to see the ad.
