Nissan: Smokeboard


TBWA Chiat Day and Nissan have created a strategically placed, spectacular outdoor board directly outside the New York Auto Show. One side of the board has a working tailpipe that spews exhaust into the air and a headline that points to the 1000+ cars in the auto show that come with them. The other side points to the zero tailpipe, 100% electric Leaf further validating the vision of sustainable mobility that Nissan wants to offer customers around the world. (It's important to note the exhaust is environmentally friendly. But the board still makes an poignant point about Nissan's competitors).

Outdoor advertisment created by TBWA, United States for Nissan, within the category: Automotive.

The auto show has over 1,000 of there.
But only one 100% electric, zero-tailpipe Nissan Leaf.
