    Default Lexus "Swinging Orbs"

    Sponsored Links

    There is this commercial from the ealy to mid 90's if I recall correctly where this car was driving through a sort of obsticle course with giant pendulums swinging back and forth. I am thinking it was a Lexus commercial or perhaps an Accura one. Either way, there was this classical music playing with a very deep somber sound to it I have wondered what this music was for many years. Someone please help me.

    After thinking about this a little more, I seem to recall that they were , for lack of a better description, giant wrecking balls instead of pendulums and they seemed to be haninging in some sort of hall that the car was driving through. Surely I am not the only person that watched TV 10 years ago.

    no, the ad sounds familiar... and i did some searches, but couldn't find anything. i'll try searching with the new information you provided a little later today.

    regarding the "classical" music -- do you recall any prominent instruments?

    Well, I remember the ad (it was giant swinging "balls" in a pendulum motion, with the car driving towards camera through them) - but don't remember the music.

    The possible answer I found via search:

    Lexus "Swinging Orbs"
    Music: Prokofiev - "Montagues And Capulets" from Romeo & Juliet

    You can hear a sample of that track off of Prokofiev's Best of Prokofiev classical CD at Amazon.com. (It's a familiar piece of music - it's probably what they used in the ad.)

    I can't find much reference to "Lexus Swinging Orbs", so the commercial may have been titled something else (or by a different car maker). Anyone know anything more about this ad?
