Nissan Takes Marketing Too Far?

Nissan have really been pushing their GT-R supercar and its Porsche 911-rivalling abilities, especially since the 2011 revisions to what was an already impressive motor, but their latest campaign is aimed squarely at Porsche drivers … whether they like it or not.

The setup is simple. Two hotties drive around in a GT-R looking for parked up Porsches. They then jump out and stick a removable sticker onto the Porsche’s windscreen so that when the owner returns and sits in his Beetle pride and joy all he can see is the rear of a GT-R. Because ‘that’s all they’d usually get to see of one’.

Watch the vid and see what you think. Never mind the dubious claims about the Nurburgring record (that argument will run … and run … and run), but what do you think about Nissan’s marketing tactics? A stroke of genius, or pushing things too far? Personally I hope this doesn’t mark the start of a new form of marketing where every car maker is running around sticking stuff to people’s cars. That would be really annoying.
