The Lexus "Pursuit of Perfection" ad that was released about a week ago was probably one of the coolest car commercials we’ve seen in quite a while. Naturally, an ad as awesome as that needs to have some sort of behind-the-scenes footage to explain just how the whole commercial was made from scratch.
Fret no more, folks. Lexus has finally given us what we’ve been clamoring for. In this three-and-half-minute video, we get an inside look at how the whole spot came to be, including interviews with a number of people that were directly involved in the making of the commercial. Among them include, Angella Johnson, a technical advisor and physicist from USC’s Physics Division and race car driver Scott Pruett, both of whom explained how the Lexus LF-A was able to break those crystal glasses, even if it seems that they didn’t cover all the bases with their explanations.
Nonetheless, it does give us a somewhat clearer picture as to how the commercial was created and, at the very least, should be able to quell some questions as to how those glasses shattered.
