thats the question one ad asks.

sounds more like conditioning to me. if your product doesnt naturally illicit passion, emotion, or desire the next best thing is to instill that idea with more phoniness similar to the camry ads.

brainwashing at its best.

es- the car you never knew you always wanted.

at least it doesnt look like the camry :unsure:

I saw that commercial yesterday. Desire? Which car? It must be a Jaguar XK they were talking about, but read it's scripts on a Lexus commercial by accident. Bad advertising agency :P

huh? no one is bashing the es. the sales are lackluster and they are searching for a new approach to sell them

Yes, the car that has consistently been Lexus' sales leader has had lackluster sales. :rolleyes:

toyoguy was being sarcastic, in case you're wondering.

my mistake, it was the gs thats sales are rather tame.

dont roll your eyes though because it still doesnt diminish the point about robots selling souless cars.

Sounds like Toyota is foraying into making sex robots. Maybe their N.A. Chairman wouldn't be in so much trouble if...
