Lexus ES Commercial: Cards (Bryan Berg)

Lexus ES Commercial: Cards (Bryan Berg)

Lexus ES Commercial – Cards. We started by designing one of the smoothest engines anywhere. Then we included 88 measures to absorb, dampen and even cancel vibrations. To demonstrate these vibration-reducing features, we wanted to put the ES in the most fragile and unstable environment imaginable. So going a few steps beyond the proverbial house of cards, we set out to build an entire city around and on top of the vehicle.

Lexus ES Commercial: Cards – Behind the Scenes

If you want to create an enormous house of cards, there’s only one guy to turn to – Bryan Berg. A self-taught artist, Bryan has been stacking cards since he was eight years old. He set his first Guinness World record when he was 17, with a tower measuring 14 feet, six inches tall. He has since set six more world records; his current record-holding structure towered over 25 feet.
