New Lexus NX Commercial

What is the automotive world coming to?

Saw a commercial for a Lexus NX yesterday. Not a thing about the car or driving. The entire commercial was using Alexa to get information on a literary work.

Sad.

Gee, I hope Amazon is thanking them for the free advertising.

I can't imagine anyone buying one of those because they think it looks good. Gotta sell it somehow.
