In response to the Lexus owner who unsuccessfully attempted to re-create the now-classic 1990 tv commercial that launched the brand, Lexus proves it’s still possible. Cleverly showing that it’s paying attention, Lexus took the time to pull a 2011 LS460 and 1990 LS400 into the garage, level them (that’s the key!) and run the respective V8s up north of 4,000 rpm. In all cases, the stack of champagne glasses remained unperturbed on either hood. Good show of customer-engagement moxie. Check it out after the jump. Thanks for the tip, Jub!

Remember that early Lexus commercial from 1989? You know the one, where an LS 400 is sitting on a dynamometer and makes a run up to 145 miles per hour, then the camera pans to the hood, where a large pyramid of crystal champagne glasses calmly sits? An Arizona Lexus owner decided to recreate that clip using his much newer LS 460.

So, does the more advanced and powerful LS fare as well the second time around? Certainly, the owner has a rather different approach, so click past the jump and see for yourself (we’ve also posted the classic ’89 ad for those that need a refresher).
