Lexus in Namaqualand

Lexus introduces viewers to hybrid SUV’s pursuit of perfection with Namaqualand, a celebration of the marvels found in the pollination process. A honey bee lands on a flower in pursuit of nectar. What’s amazing about the scene is that for most of the year Namaqualand, an arid region of South Africa, is dry and colourless. With the arrival of rain the region erupts into an incredible display of wild flowers.
