Cool LS Commercials & Articles

I'm trying to gather LS (all years) related information for my site. What I have so far is here: http://www.lexls.com/info

I'm looking for links to articles, LS commercials or anything so if you have a link please post! I know there was an LS in at least one movie too but I can't remember which one.

Mack (played by Kevin Kline) was rescued by tow truck driver Simon (played by Danny Glover) when his LS400 broke down in a rough part of LA late at night in the 1991 film "Grand Canyon": http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101969/

The LS400 is shown briefly in the opening scene of the trailer: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101969/...lay-E23249-314

It's a darned good movie but it didn't make me feel good seeing an LS400 break down on the screen having bought a new one a year earlier. All my friends who saw the film needled me about it.

I'm pretty sure there's a UCF10 LS in Casino Royale if anyone wants to find it and make a clip of it. Made me really happy to see the car in that movie.

Shaft, with Samuel Jackson and Busta Rhymes. Peoples Hernandez (drug dealer) has a ucf10 in this movie and also has the Lexus truck. Damn shame what happened to them tho.

Haha, yep, I posted it in another thread that we had a few months back about our cars on TV shows or music videos.

if someone could dig up that thread, it would be sweet.

Wow, LS's have been in a LOT more video than I realized! Thanks for all the links so far I think Anger Management is the one I was thinking of where it falls from a parking garage or something (good link Jasbmo).

If you guys remember season 5 of "24", when Wayne Palmer was trying to get to the president. He was driving a UCF30 and then got ambushed, but they used a UCF20 in the crash scene. Just thought I might add that.

Awesome website, LexLS!!! I've visited it often.

There are some LS commercials which I found here:
https://www.clublexus.com/forums/sho...6&postcount=2\

ThePassionatePursuit.com found this 1LS ad:

http://thepassionatepursuit.com/2007...y-in-the-bank/

There are more 1LS ads out there IIRC.
