I like this commercial, but the logic behind the copy is flawed. Right now we get the VAST majority of our electricity from COAL. But this copy pretends like the electricity comes from magical little elves.

The "zero dependance on foreign oil" is accurate. But the rest of the copy is a lie.

This is as bad as what the cigarette companies did for decades.

Correct, zero is not really possible at this point, BUT electric cars only consume 10% of the fossil fuels for the same trip as cars running on gasoline. So electric cars are a huge help in cleaning up the environment.

Agree, 0 is what everyone will get in the next 100 years. This ad is on the right track.

They may consume only 10% but think what will happen if everyone suddenly switched to electric.

Anyway does this ad work emotionally? Yes

Is it misleading? Yes

Mission complete.

because therefore it is

i think that if suddenly everyone switch to electric, we would suddenly have a massive reduction on gas emission, which is good.

depends on the country but it will definitely reduce the emission if we all turn to electricity.

Great copy, love it. "Zero is better then nothing." Really stands out and makes you think. Having said that, no, I don't mean as if it's a live-changer ;p

Pretty much the same concept:

It's not a 0 but a three... but.....

Nice commercial nevertheless.

One would expect more from a Nissan agency.One can recall this multiple zero thing, but much more originally, done with squares, for VW. Nice copy however, although a bit jesuitic.
