Car Ad Pranks Viewers on April Fool’s Day With New “Lane Valet” Technology
Lexus had some fun on April Fool’s Day with a mind blowing ad that had some of us scratching our heads.
In the ad Lexus is featuring their new technology featuring Lane Valet which allows the driver of the Lexus LC and or the LS to move a slow driver to move to another lane. The ‘semi-autonomous passing-lane assisting technology’ signals the other vehicle prompting their turn signal and moving them onto another lane.
While this seems like a genius concept I’m not quite sure how some drivers would react and how pissed would someone be if your car automatically gets moved to another lane. And let’s not even get started on the road rage this would all cause.
Truth is that the Lexus Lane Valet is only an April Fool’s Day prank and Lexus really doesn’t offer this option in their new vehicles.
