2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Swimsuit Model Inspires Car Buying?
February 24, 2011
For some reason Nissan decided to compare the 2011 Nissan Juke to a swimsuit model in its latest TV ad campaign, "Model vs. Model."
OK, the carmaker does have a reason. It's sponsoring Sports Illustrated's search for the next swimsuit issue model. However, some folks find the campaign offensive since a car's agility, acceleration, aerodynamics and curb appeal are being compared to that of a model. Yes, they actually have a bikini-clad model run through a slalom in her gold platform sandals. An unfair fight for sure.
But I'm just curious if these ads will in fact motivate anyone to buy the car. What say you?
