Lexus- the luxury brand from the Toyota Motor Corporation has recently published two contents to promote their brand-new safety feature with panoramic view camera for their LX 2019 series. Let’s have a look at the illustration first.
Title: More Eyes on The Road
Agency: Leo Burnett
Now, there is a catch. In 2012, Mercedes Benz came up with almost exactly the same creation to promote their own Blind Spot Assist feature. Have a look:
Title: Look to the side without looking to the side.
Agency: Jung von Matt
- The creative feedback
The main concept behind both the ads were to promote a car that allows you to see in front and to the side at the same time. However, in both the cases, they produced a series of portraits, of characters quite identical in their typology and which stand out against a gray background.
Now, was it an inspiration or just an honest mistake from both the brand team of Lexus and the agency responsible for this? You decide.
