The Crystal Gauntlet

Agency Network: 
May 2017


Any high performance car can sparkle on a racetrack. But what about in a room full of expensive crystal? Lexus high performance vehicles are leaving a mark without shattering a thing – besides your expectations. “The Crystal Gauntlet,” a new video released, features the powerful GS F, RC F and LC 500 doing stunts in a china shop full of Baccarat crystal.

Luckily for Lexus, the precision of the vehicles and drift world champion Rhys Millen left dozens of genuine Baccarat crystal pieces intact. Holding your breath watching the video? Us too – all of the stunts performed by the drivers are 100% real. Amazingly, no crystal was harmed in the making of the spot, created by agency Team One.
