When Lexus comes out in Mexico, I will be interested to see, though I don't expect, that they will do any tv ads. My cousin plans to keep me posted. Most of the Mexican voices have a more senusal tone when doing car ads.

What you mean the correct pronunciation? A car company is hardly going to pronounce its own name wrong in their own adverts.

They used different voices/people for commercials outside the US...

"its alive"
I like how it starts sweating and at the end, the door's 'breathe'

Whenever I talk about my car to non-Lexus owners, I try to talk kinda like that guy. I just call it the "Lexus voice". Basically, get in your mind that you're better than everyone else, then talk like you feel that way. Voila! Lexus voice!

I just saw a commercial and thought he sounds pompous and may turn some people off as from his tone how he describes Lexus and Lexus cars some may think Lexus cars are super expensive and unaffordable like Rolls Royce or Bently and only for rich people. I think he would be better off doing commercials for older rich potential buyers of RR or Bently instead of someone who should be trying to get younger buyers to the Lexus brand which is what Lexus is a group Lexus wants to target more. He is certainly not going to cut it for sportier Lexus cars and high performance models like F models as he seems better suited for old world expensive British cars geared toward older buyers.

The number one demographic of Lexus car buyers is still an older crowd. The commercials target that demographic.

Yes!! His voice is boring, and makes one think of boring vehicles. Inject some enthusiasm, techo music, brighter lighting.. Lexus should bring back the woman in the 98 Lexus GS400 commerical "When something wicked this way comes"

Some of you are a riot. Lexus marketing is in hundreds of books as "what to do". The guys voice is fine but maybe after 18 years, its getting old and redundant.

To marketing, his voice=Lexus. If your back is turned and you hear him on the T.V, there is a good chance a person will recognize it as a Lexus commercial.

Its now old and redundant to have some people think all cars should be sporty and have ads with flashing lights and basically have all cars/ads be the same.

I don't have any issue with his voice at all or any car makers "voice".
