Nissan has successfully merged high-action 3D animation with marketing, creating an exciting commercial for their Juke vehicle. Gone is the boring spot in which a car drives through a mountain side as a voice-over uses carefully chosen keywords. Instead, the Juke battles it out against a 500-ton steel monster with tank treads for feet. Click here to check out the second commercial in the series.
