Official Nissan answer (sent to someone who asked about the Nissan commercial,
and the black guy in drag)
explains everything clearly (Not)

I've politely asked the ad agency which came up with the commercial (TBWA) to explain the cross-dressing black guy at the end.

I'm keeping on good terms with them for reasons we won't go into (freebies)
but I rate my chance of getting a reply from them about this at less than 5%

Right! Just been informed by my lovely other half that Nissan are running the Cross Dresser advert in the UK too, she's just watched it this morning.

I can just see the ribbin I'm gonna get from my mates. If Nissan are targeting the youth 20-35 market SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL THEM THAT IMAGE IS IMPORTANT and we don't want to be branded as cross dressers (not that I have anything against people who indulge in such activities).

Seriously PR FAIL

That is only a small part of the advert and all in all it's just a bit of fun.
I wouldn't get hung up on it and to be honest i think it fits the quirkyness of the Juke. AT least it gets the car talked about. Certainly doesnt suggest that we are all cross dressers.!

Think it is a good piece of PR if it does the job in getting the car noticed and talked about.

As long as it doesn't get labelled a hairdressers car then I'm all good! Then again any car I seem to buy would get labelled like that. I could buy a ferrari f40 and still get ribbed by my mates in work!

I don't care though, I love the Juke and I'm picking mine up a few days early tomorrow yay!

I thought the message was, "what you get on top is not what's underneath."

As long as when they talk about "what you get on top is not what's underneath" doesn't refer to the driver........

Bonjour
The 30 second Juke commercial for USA is on YouTube now
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKkCkUoZcPk&feature=player_embedded

...and there a new Jukeapp for a fancy Androidphone if anyone is into that sort of thing:
http://www.jukepowerup.com/

...and Europe's most active Juke blogger Valerie R (Val63) must have been at the Paris Motor Show at the same time as me to video this yesterday! I assume Nissan sent her an invitation too -the show doesnt open to the general public til tomorrow.

There's also a 1 shortened one minute version of the Juke TV advert which I saw in France, but while the jewellery thief and a few other bits are edited out, the black guy at the end stays in!
This is a Portugese version from youtube,so you get the idea

<I asked at Paris and the Nissan peoplethink the black guyis just coming back from a stag party - he isNOT a cross-dresser
hmm that's OK then

It was obvious from the way they had an answerimmediately, that I was NOT the first person to ask

Oh if only I had android!

Looking at the top banner pic tho, could thye FIT any more accessories on the juke, from my eye I see: 18" wheels, chrome mirrors, chrome fog rings, chrome side bars, front faceplate

the image i'm talking about is this one:

the blade silver demo at our dealer had the chrome pack. I personally didn't like it. the front fog rings looked awful, i just think chrome on cars went out in the 80's!!
the only thing i like about the pic above are the chrome mirrors but only on the red & the side bars look kinda cool!
LOL

Iwas shownthis in Paris last week, - it's not for the UK market.
It's called "The Dread" and is a video advertproduced by Psyop as part of the Urban Legend campaign for countries including Canada.

Juke meets a500 ton steel monster!

The Juke wins of course!
