Lexus is sticking its money where its agency is. Team One Advertising, the same agency that has helped drive Lexus to impressive sales, sped off Thursday with the estimated $20-million to $30-million annual ad business for the newly formed national Lexus Dealer Assn.

In a new commercial from Team One Advertising in El Segundo, a Lexus LS 400 sedan appears to speed across a tundra, as icy cracks open behind it. Here is how Venice-based Sight Effects created the snowy illusion. 1. Photographers filmed the sedan zipping around the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, capturing mountains in the background and natural creases on the white ground. 2. Using the creases in the natural landscape as guides, digital animators built 3-D models of the icy cracks.

Pearlstein had handled the Hardee's business at his own agency until last October, when he joined Team One.

If advertising is geared toward the young, perhaps ad awards should be geared toward young agencies. Such was the case Wednesday night when Stein Robaire Helm, a little-known Brentwood agency that didn't even exist until five years ago--but has since helped turn Ikea into a household name in Southern California--walked off with seven of the West Coast's top ad awards. No other agency won as many.

Leonard Pearlstein, a Los Angeles advertising veteran who helped launch the ill-fated Suzuki Samurai, is back in the driver's seat. He's been named chief executive of Team One, the El Segundo unit of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide that creates advertising for Lexus. Known as a hands-on executive who seldom takes no for an answer, Pearlstein is expected to expand Team One's limited roster of clients. "He's a builder of advertising agencies," said a former partner, Paul Keye.

Any marketer who honestly believes that conspicuous consumption is out--and restraint is in--didn't make it to Beverly Hills over the weekend. There was ostentatiousness at its grandest. Three blocks of Rodeo Drive were closed so that Ferrari--the Italian maker of $100,000-plus sports cars--could display its 24-karat sheet metal to some of the wealthiest gawkers in L.A. Ferrari said it came to town to introduce its new $120,000 Spider convertible and, incidentally, to raise money for charity.
