PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son Seems to Have Heavily Inspired this Lexus Commercial

By Giuseppe Nelva

August 5, 2014

Video games are becoming a more and more widespread and respected form of entertainment art, so it’s not unlikely or farfetched for them to inspire other artists and even filmmakers.

Lexus recently released a trailer titled Amazing in Motion – STROBE, directed by Adam Berg and using amazing strobe costumes created by Hollywood costume designer Vin Burnham and technical director Adam Wright.

While Lexus officially mentions that the trailer has been inspired by its cars, and specifically by the spindle grille and LED headlights, it’s hard for a gamer not to notice another very likely source of inspiration.

Below you can check out the trailer, and compare it with inFAMOUS: Second Son‘s Neon reveal trailer. If the Lexus’ video wasn’t directly inspired by the neon dash shown in slow motion, those that made them might just share the same brain.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
