Earlier this week, Cadillac released a group of videos entitled “Luxperiments,” where they test everyday products on the same equipment as the Cadillac ATS. What happens next is ultimately four weird videos that don’t make much sense, other than they give you a good laugh.
The first video is the “Fancy Cake” luxperiment. In it, the automaker uses its extreme heat chamber that tests the car’s durability on not only a wedding cake, but everything that surrounds it. As you can probably imagine, it doesn’t end well for the cake.
The next video isn’t much different, only in that it uses a full dining room set, complete with a hutch filled with china. For the dining room luxperiment, Cadillac uses its automotive shaker platform that tests the stability of its vehicles.
The “Fancy Piano” is next, and for this test, the automaker pulls out the suspension test track used for ride and handling testing. Suffice it to say, the piano could use a better suspension.
The last video in this segment is the “Fancy Clock” luxperiment. Using a high-speed motor that is normally for testing Cadillac engines, the hands of the clock begin to spin faster and faster, with the second counter swinging back and forth faster and faster. It’s more than the poor clock can take, but not before it has a chance to reflect on a life well lived.
At the end of each of these videos is the phrase, “Don’t drive this, drive this.” Obviously people aren’t going to be driving any of the objects seen in these videos. Watch these videos for yourself to see what all the luxperiments have to show.
