Nissan Leaf – a world without petrol bowsers

Video

A very nicely executed idea that could grow into an ad.

It certainly demonstrates the core “USP” of the car i.e. it’s electric.

I’m also assuming that people who buy electric cars (and have the cash to pay the premium) are attracted by this.

Certainly grabbed some attention of quite a few school kids by the look of it. Kids are apparently strong influencers of the family car purchase so might not be a bad thing if Nissan are cool with the kids.

Banksy in “the world’s first street-art disaster movie” – Times Online

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Part of an interesting interview with Banksy by The Times:

CCTV cameras are one of his obsessions at the moment; they are, he says, one of the worst things about modern Britain.

“The amount of security cameras gets on my nerves. Obviously from a professional point of view, but also on a more philosophical level. I don’t understand why Britain has embraced cameras more than anywhere else — is it because we’re desperate to feel we still matter and we quite enjoy the idea someone is always watching us? I hate it when they say, ‘If you’ve done nothing wrong then you’ve got nothing to hide.’ Everyone’s got something to hide, otherwise there’s something really wrong with them.”
