Looks can indeed be deceiving and if you watch this new Nissan Canada commercial for the Sentra SE-R, you would think that the cars that were used during filming were actual Nissan vehicles.
Ok, that last statement isn’t entirely true and only somebody with a warped sense of dimensions would think that the car used in the ad is a real Sentra SE-R. Memo to you buddy: those are 1/10th scale RC models of the Sentra SE-R.
The more you watch the ad though, the more those cars begin to look like the real thing. Then again, Nissan isn’t exactly a neophyte when it comes to making commercials using RC vehicles so we shouldn’t at all be surprised that they dusted off an old marketing trick to promote their new Sentra SE-R.
If it works, it works. We shouldn’t be blaming Nissan for not coming out with something new to attract our attention. Rather, we should be blaming ourselves for continuing to enjoy something these guys have already done before. And to be honest, we can’t get enough of the commercial.
