When he’s not inflicting earworms such as My Humps on the world as part of The Black Eyed Peas, evangelising about technology or appearing as a judge on The Voice, Will.i.am apparently indulges in car design. As well as appearing in an ad for the Lexus NX, he has designed a one-off version of the model. Oddly – and unlike the other, more innovative executions in Lexus’ "amazing in motion" campaign – the latest spot does not stray far from the established car-ad formula.
