Office life doesn't let up for a modern boss in Nissan's latest spot

Editor's Pick

Nissan new ad for its 2020 Murano model centers on a company boss who just can't seem to escape from office life.

As she tries to leave work, she's beset on all sides by her colleagues and employees asking her one last question, complaining about office politics and trying to get her to look at stuff. 

As she goes out to her car (the Murano) you think maybe she's escaped—but in this ad, comedy director Wayne McClammy of Hungry Man takes things one step further into the realms of the ridiculous. Her colleagues hang sales charts from buildings, chase her in their own cars and even try to hold a meeting on the side of a truck as she drives along. 

The ad, created out of TBWA/Chiat/Day New York, ends with her finally fleeing from their clutches and speaking to her husband on the in-car phone. He asks her how her day went, and she just rolls her eyes and says, "Mondays."
