Lexus GS — Break The Circle

Brewster Parsons, the award-winning visual effects, CG & design studio, has completed VFX for a new Lexus commercial, which literally runs circles around its competition. Created by Team One for Lexus, and helmed by the Sweet Shop’s Iain Mackenzie, the racy new spot entitled “Break the Circle” showcases the power of the Lexus GS sedan and its “Pursuit of Perfection.”

In stark contrast to the vultures circling the luxury competition, the Lexus GS 350 with its power and speed breaks through the pack leaving its competitors in the dust. We see the sedan tear through the desert landscape alone, a shining visage on an otherwise desolate landscape.
