Lexus December to Remember Song

After receiving numerous inquiries about Lexus’ old December to Remember commercial music, I did a little research and found a Youtube version by the original composer, Steve Kujala: Crazy video aside, I also found this press release with more information — turns out this song has been used by Lexus for 12 years, no wonder …

It’s likely that US readers are more than a little familiar with the latest round of Lexus December to Remember commercials, but I’ve just seen them for the first time: The house in the last commercial is crazy, but not half as crazy as receiving a car for Christmas — no way I’d be able …

The Story Behind the Red Bows

With all this talk of Lexus gift-giving for Christmas, I found myself more interested in the logistics behind it: What if they don’t like the model? Or the color? According to the Houston Chronicle, who looked into the car-giving phenomenon, vehicles can be exchanged if necessary, though there was no mention of people returning the …

Lexus Red Bow Christmas Videos

Some people actually do get a Lexus for Christmas — and not only that, but with Youtube, we can watch along: To be honest, I couldn’t even watch the videos all the way through, they’re rather awkward with the yelling and tears. Update: Added another video.

Happy Holidays from The Passionate Pursuit

No matter how unsubtle my hints were, I have some real doubts that I’ll be getting an Lexus LS 600hL for Christmas, December to Remember or no. Hopefully, some of you out there have better luck! (Posting will resume on Boxing Day December 27th. Santa left me the flu for Christmas.)
