So we were curious what the ad agency that does all of Nissan’s campaigns would think of this faux spot. And we got this back:
Everyone at TBWA\Chiat\Day wants to thank you for your interest and support.
With respect to the idea you forwarded to our office, we unfortunately have a policy (prompted by, I hate to say, our lawyers) that does not permit us to either review or accept unsolicited advertising, marketing or promotional ideas or materials. Once it is recognized that the purpose of any correspondence represents an unsolicited idea, they get forwarded to me without reviewing and I’m the guy with the unenviable position of having to tell people I am returning their ideas without reviewing them and that we aren’t keeping any copies.
Please do not interpret this as a rejection of the value of these ideas — we love the enthusiasm for our advertising.

We got rejection letter? Geez. It just never fails to sting.
