Nissan uses old RC cars trick for the new Sentra SE-R commercial

Nissan uses old RC cars trick for the new Sentra SE-R commercial

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.

Nissan GT-R crashes into Vancouver bank

Nissan GT-R crashes into Vancouver bank

Vancover was the scene of yet another Nissan GT-R crash after the owner of the sports car slammed into a VanCity Credit Union Bank. Fortunately, except for the driver who had a few gashes here and there, nobody was hurt or seriously injured from the accident.

According to News 1130, the GT-R barely hit a few civilians, including one who was just in front of the car after it crashed into a row of ATM machines. Another woman was inches away from being run over before jumping out of the way seconds before it would’ve hit her.

The police are currently investigating the situation and are not ruling out the idea that the GT-R may have been going faster than it should have, which probably led to the driver losing control of the car.

The driver was fortunate that nobody was seriously hurt because he would’ve had to face a much stiffer penalty than just paying for the damages. Then again, crashing a GT-R onto a bank is going to be pretty damaging to his bank account anyway.

Check the GTR crashed video after the jump.
