Default So I'm Not THAT Crazy

Back in junior high I remember a LSS commercial with a Olds LSS racing a cheetah. I thought these where false memories until the commercial popped up on youtube a few days ago.

And another cheesy commercial where the LSS goes against a Lexus and Infinity and a cook.

Gatta admit good computer animation for the 1990'* on the cheetah.

Cars look great int he commercials, but somehow not crazy about them anymore. Guy I work with has one, white LSS with spoiler, nice car, but old mans car.

There has to be some computer animation in there somewhere. Trust me, its hard enough to train a domestic house cat let alone a wild Cheetah even though it was from a zoo.

no "computer animation" just some good old fashioned camera work. there is only 1 shot where you really see the car and the cheeta together and they are both going in a straight line. the rest could be seperate shots of the cheeta running and the car, spliced together in different orders to make it seem like both events are happening at the same time

Yup, probably several days worth of film, and a bunch of rabbits went into that one...
