In an attempt to sell his almost destroyed 17-year-old Nissan Maxima that was produced in 1996, professional filmmaker Luke Aker created an excessively luxurious commercial for the weathered car called ‘Luxury Defined.' The hilarious car ad is made in brilliantly extravagant cinematography that is expertly cut and edited. It even has a British narrator against a Vivaldi Four Seasons soundtrack to enhance its luxuriousness.

The video begins in black and white, showing the progressive nature of technological advancement. The clip’s introduction, “[T]he most iconic monuments always seem to be those who stand the test of time, the structures that weathered the years; those who stood through wars and depression; and today, still stand impressive”, cleverly relates the 1996 Maxima Nissan to an iconic monument that has stood the test of time.
