Hilarious: recreate Lexus LS400 ad FAIL!

Back in 1989 when Toyota rebranded the Toyota Celsior to the Lexus LS400 it introduced the car with an almost unbelievable ad: a stack of champagne glasses was placed on the bonnet while the car drove 145mph (240km/h) on a rolling road. The champagne glasses remained steady even though the engine under it revved all the way up to 5000rpm. Amazing!

This Lexus owner tried to recreate that stack on his brand new 2009 LS460 (XF40) and see if it would be as good as the LS400 and his Youtube video went viral this week. He utterly fails and the stack collapses around 4000 rpm:

Now, you may think that the ad was wrong, but in reality the owner actually failed to stack the champagne glasses properly.

Lexus responded by recreating it on both a 2009 LS460 and 1990 LS400 and amazingly the stack remains stable:

Now how about that?

Also fun to watch, a parody on that 1989 ad:

Now that’s more like it! :D

Hilarious: Nissan Skyline Trans Am

Now this is something different: a Nissan Skyline DR30 with a huge american influence. Maybe better to referred as the Skyline Trans Am:
Nissan Skyline Trans Am
Nissan Skyline Trans Am

You can clearly see the nose is a copy of the 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.

The big question remains: what were they thinking:
Nissan Skyline Trans Am
Nissan Skyline Trans Am

Lots and lots of scoops, wings and other stuff. It almost feels like a riced out Firebird… But the only thing is that it isn’t a Pontiac…
