Lexus 2014 CT Hybrid. Not ordinary, EXTRAordinary
In this, the newest in a series of new commercials for the 2014 Lexus CT Hybrid we see a young man and a young lady leading a ‘multi faceted’ life, which includes driving the new CT Hybrid. The name of the song played during the commercial is currently not known. While the music is playing we can see on the in-dash music system that it shows the name of the song as “Hybrid Life” by the artist “The Logans”, but this appears to be more of a description of the man and the woman (the Logans) living a “hybrid life” as shown during the ad, instead of the actual name of the song. The name of the actress that plays the woman driving the CT is not known. The name of the actor that plays the guy driving is also currently not known. If you know the names of these actors please submit a comment, below.
What the announcer says:
Leading a multi-faceted life is anything but ordinary. Meet the Hybrid that matches your drive. The new 2014 Lexus CT Hybrid with an EPA estimated 42MPG.
Embrace your extraordinary.
The fine print
Throughout the commercial, the following fine print is displayed:
- “Options shown” – While the white CT is driving past the woman walking the dalmatian.
- “Always properly secure and restrain all pets” – Displayed when the woman is loading the dalmatian into the red Lexus CT (as shown in the image above)
- “Based on 2014 EPA combination mileage ratings 43/40/42 city/highway/combination. Actual milage will vary” – Shown when the announcer says “EPA estimated 42MPG”. This means that the 42MPG is an average of the city driving milage, highway driving mileage and the milage of combined city and highway. These averages are from standard EPA tests done on all cars and are intended to be a means of baseline comparison between cars. As also mentioned in the fine print, your “actual milage may vary” which means, you probably won’t really get 42 miles per gallon.
There is no deceptive wording in the commercial, and only minimal, standard fine-print. This commercial is intended to introduce us to this new car and the wording seems mostly legit.
