Flickr user gcbp_television has given us an insider’s view to the making of a Lexus GS450h commercial:
The apparatus on top of the GS450h is called a “Rain Rig”, and it simulates a downpour from inside the vehicle. Here are some more details provided by the photographer:
The rain rig was on the car for a Lexus Commercial to be aired on American television. The ad is about a guy who drives around in the rain trying to find a golf course.
The ad was filmed near Loch Lomond and around the East Coast of Scotland. It was shot by famous cameraman Seamus McGarvey BSC, who recently shot Oliver Stone’s movie ‘World Trade Centre’.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for this commercial to leak onto the Internet some time in the future.
