it is November 19th. And I am so sick of the Christmas commercials that I am turning into Scrooge I think.
not enough to make me not want to look at cars, but a few brands are well off the list now!

I've had the TV on for an hour and heard a Lexus one twice already. Also heard a local one in California last week.
But hey, no spoiled princesses and ostentatious houses yet this year.

It seems lately, car makers are caught up in the "Black Friday" hype as much or more as normal retailers. At Thanksgiving, my grandmother was complaining that there are too many car commercials.
Lexus one makes me laugh, a woman in high heels operating a treadle sewing machine?

A cloud of dust wafts across the screen. Voiceover in a deep male voice:
"Not many kids dream of having posters of a Passat on the wall".
The dust clears to show a Dodge Charger doing donuts.
Graphic: "300 HP. 31 MPG."

That is classy.
No doubt people are humming the nice Lexus Christmas melody at this time of year when viewing the well produced and artistic Lexus commercials. Lexus Christmas melody almost as familiar with Americans as jingle bells.

I am not sure about what class that would be, or if most know the song, but to Toyolex's credit, they've toned down the spoiled entitled princess angle this year.

I don't think I'd like being married to Vampira either.

She is kind of unusual.
I still get a kick out of how they term it "provocative" styling - not good mind you, just provocative.

The whole thing is kind of creepy.
