When we saw the first commercials for the 2013 Lexus ES last week, it reminded me to post these third-generation ES ads:
Too bad these two voice actors weren’t hired to do the Lexus navigation system’s turn-by-turn directions.
Three More 2013 Lexus ES Commercials
New Lexus LS Commercials
Lexus December to Remember 2012 Commercials
“17 Mile” is easily the best ES Commercial ever, and as good as any Lexus has EVER done.
Marketing was always a Lexus strength, until recently. their new commercials can’t touch these classics!
Does anybody know who the original announcer on the early Lexus Corporation commercials is?
He had a great booming voice that I loved.
All the new ads have a new announcer that is similar, but doesn’t compare to the original person.
His name was James Sloyan:
Sloyan was the voice of Lexus from 1989 until 2009, until being replaced by actor James Remar.
Thank you very much for this info. I thought he might have died, but was happy to hear that he’s alive and well. I still feel though that he was the best announcer for the Lexus commercials.
