Lexus Proves They Have A Sense Of Humor

Posted in Funny Videos, Lexus by Kurt Ernst | February 11th, 2011 | 8 Responses |

Maybe it’s just me, but I found this commercial to be pretty damn funny. We’ve all been there, and if we’re lucky we had some advanced warning (though probably not as clear as the video below depicts). I don’t know about you, but when I see a driver doing 55 in a 70, blindly texting away, I get the hell away from them, quickly. I know he’s going to hit someone or something eventually, so I see it as my obligation to take myself and my car off his intended-victim list. I’d rather explain to a state trooper why I was driving at 85 in a 70, instead of having a trooper explain to my wife that I won’t be coming home. Ever.

Drivers in Jacksonville are so bad that I’m actually thinking about adding a freight train air horn and compressor system to every vehicle I own, supplemented by a few hundred-thousand candlepower driving lights. Sure it’s illegal and sure it’ll piss off other motorists, but it may just help to get my point across. I won’t be buying a Lexus anytime soon, so I’ve got to do all I can to increase my chances of survival on the roads.

    hate to say it,but this is mere public relations spin control. 4/2010 The special designation given by consumer reports to the GX460,DONT BUY;SAFETY RISK.problem with the ESC system,possible roll over.toyota stopped selling them for a while,until software became available to address it. But i still wonder how safe are they and other high center of gravity SUV’s.

      eddie, they’re only as safe as the loose nut behind the wheel. There’s a reason why SUV’s have gotten wider and lower; people just can’t learn that they’ll never handle like a sports car or even a mid-size sedan.

      I love my FJ Cruiser, but I drive it in a completely different manner than my MX-5.

    i find it funny because ive had a bachelorette party straight up WALK into my truck because they were texting and giggling and all that good stuff… funny thing is “how dare you park your truck right where im walking!?!!?!!?!?!?!” if youve ever been to the Gaslamp District in San Diego you know people will literally walk into traffic when there isnt a cross walk

      Russ, that’s not limited to Insane Diego. I see that head-up-their-ass behavior from pedestrians all the time down here. It’s like they’re saying, “go ahead and hit me so I can get rich suing your insurance company”.

    Kurt,
    I know what your goin through as I live in Jacksonville. I just recently installed train horns on my truck, best 400 dollars i ever spent… Use ‘em damn near every day.

      train horns sound awesome,better yet, looking through a public safety catalog there is a 100watt amplified horn like they have in emergency vehicles,just have to have enough room to mount the speaker type horn.its actually part of the siren system, but you can get the control switch with just the horn button minus the siren,besides it would piss a cop off if a civilian had a siren on his personal dialy driver
