Another automaker pictures a world powered by gas.

Editor's Pick

This time, Nissan and TBWA/Chiat/Day, L.A. come out with an ad picturing a world that has yet to tap into electricity, directed by MJZ's Dante Ariola. The spot, promoting the automaker's Leaf EV, looks startlingly similar to this one out of Publicis for Renault and shot by Dougal Wilson. And both bear striking resemblance to this German spec spot, directed by Stephan Hilpert. A huge coincidence? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.
