That Shell Helix commercial that’s been making the rounds in YouTube has made quite an impression on a lot of people. An impression, not because the Helix is such a revolutionary product, but because the commercial featured a life-sized, clea,r and working acrylic-made Nissan 370Z.

If you thought the whole idea was out-of-the-box, it was. As a matter of fact, it was so far out-of-the-box it actually deserved it’s own three-minute video on how the commercial was made, including the acrylic Nissan 370Z. Check it out and see how the brilliance of advertising works when creative minds come together.

Nissan really provides a quality that all customers need. They don;t do things like Toyota. smiley

Quiet impressive. At least now, we get an idea on how Nissan provides us a good quality car.
