I kinda like it.

Nice cars and I love surprises. Hopefully one day I can do that for my significant other.

Merry Christmas!

Right with you, Jack. "Hey honey, I just locked you into a 5-year auto loan at $459 per month. Merry Christmas!"

"Geeze honey thanks for the nifty Lexus, here's your box of chocolates"

or

"Previously driven??, thanks I guess"

I am not a fan of the ads.. "oh look there is a Lexus with a ribbon on it, ahh never-mind it was on the fence behind the car"

"The car is $48,500??, how much for just the ribbon"

I hate diamond commercials. "Oh, he got me a diamond from XX." It implies, "You're nothing if you don't buy a diamond from XX"

Ya, they've been driving this campaign into the ground. They need to think of something new.

IMO the advertising of the entire diamond industry is overall pretty ingenious, but I think some of these diamond commercials are pathetic.

There's one commercial where a wife tells her husband off because such-and-such got HER diamond from XX, and he didn't...retarded.

Not to mention that until the 1900s, diamonds were not all that rare or valuable, until the deBeers Corporation managed to convince everyone that one cannot get married without a diamond. Congratulations, deBeers; shame on everyone else.

I love the cars, the commercials can use some work (although some are ok)...but yeah the music has to go.

And most diamond commercials are ok, except for the "He went to JARED" ones...

Diamonds: Because prostitution is illegal duck 

Regarding the Lexus - I have one (8 yr old). It's a great commuter car but the design/performance shortcomings are very apparent when compared to the German competition (IMO). My experience comes from a wide variety of Lexus/BMW/Audi cars over a variety of time periods.

Luxury cars are a nice last minute gift, especially when the gifter has paid cash. It's been going on for eons, and there's no reason for Lexus not to capitalize on this market.

Think about it, if people didn't do things like that (and they certainly do), Lexus wouldn't waste their money advertising to compete for those dollars.

Now about those Craftmatic bed commercials ...

The analagous steroid would probably be Prednisone - My ES300 is just heavier and softer than a Camry!

For those unfamiliar with Prednisone:
http://www.transweb.org/reference/articles/drugs/pred.html

I was given this stuff by a booger-eating doctor while a student at Penn State (2 years ago). It did nothing for the incapacitating headaches I sought treatment for. What it did do was take me from a fit 21 year old to an out of shape 21 year old in 2 weeks. I gained 20+ pounds in 14 days due to this stuff!

Needless to say I dislike my Lexus and that doctor!

At least the used Lexus was cheap!
