You remember when I posted about my hatred of Christmas car commercials? Well guess what. I still hate them.
Again, it’s the Lexus ads driving me nuts. This year, all the gift giving occasions revolve around recognizing the somehow universally known “Lexus song”. You know, because when you hear that song, you know your significant other dropped a minimum of $34k to surprise you. Was it on your Amazon wish list or something?
I did a little research, and it turns out that “Lexus Song” is actually called “Family & Friends“, written by Steve Kujala, a prolific composer and flautist. I actually listened to the whole piece. Luckily, listening to the actual piece doesn’t fill me with infinite range.
So, back to the commercials. The couples are together, and then they hear the song, played by some clever means, like in a music box, as a ringtone, or the Muzak playing in the elevator. I will admit, as a video game fan, I was least annoyed by the one where they programmed the song in Guitar Hero. But still. You don’t buy cars for people.
Unless, of course, you’re a millionaire:
Like last year, I was able to make an exception for commercials that amuse me and make fun of other ads. 🙂
So, what commercials are making you angry this holiday season?
