The third step was to work with a production designer to create a system of levers that would set off the drums when the wheels of the vehicle rolled over them. This task required a precise vehicle and skilled driver to ensure a beat that was accurate within fractions of a second.

Finally, Lexus selected a professional stunt driver, Eddie Braun, to meet the challenge of wielding the IS on the course so precisely that it would hit its mark, every time. Braun utilized the vehicle’s performance technology to meet the demands of the course while relying not only on the speedometer to measure speed, but by simultaneously listening for the tempo.

The result of the IS’s precision? Music to anyone’s ears. “The first time it all came together on rehearsal day, the crew burst into applause,” added Nordstrom.

The spot, titled “Music Track,” is part of the “Wield Precision” campaign for the 2011 Lexus IS. It can be viewed at YouTube.com/lexusvehicles and during NFL Network’s pre-kickoff show, as well as on full episode players online. The campaign will also be featured in an outdoor, print, mobile and online banner campaign, as well as partnerships with Pandora, CNET and in Esquire magazine’s October issue and Yahoo! Sportacular iPad applications.
