Wild (but Formal) Japanese Commercial for the RX 300/Harrier

I’m unsure exactly how this commercial would have been pitched, “You see, there’s this lion-man, ok, and he rescues this damsel in distress, all while driving a Harrier! Wild but Formal!”:

Seriously, a lion-man?

(Thought it was very cool to see a body kit advert at the end of the commercial, though.)
