I don’t watch a lot of TV but I did happen to be watching the news the other night to see what coverage there was of the EMU launch when an ad from Nissan came on.
Traditionally we’re used to car commercials existing in a sort of alternative reality where not a single other car is on the road to get in the way. This one from Nissan was different though in that there was some traffic on the roads. What disappoint me though was that Nissan seem to be endorsing reckless driving with the car seemingly encouraging the driver to weave through traffic at speed putting others, especially pedestrians at risk.
In the US where it’s known as the Rouge the second part is even worse, although perhaps suggesting that in a city the fastest way around is on a train.
Come on Nissan. Surely you can do better than this.
