  • Question on kenmeri

    I been researching this but had no luck finding the answer but does anyone know who and which advertising company came up with the idea of using ken and Mary as a couple for the skyline model commercial? Also I saw the ad and the couples name is spelled ken and Mary yet we always she it spelled as kenmeri instead of kenmary. Any reason for this?

    What I know on the subject, Ni Ten was the production company. Ken and Mary, as in Mary Ken (American) because Nissan wanted an American feel for the car and advertising.

        Probably because the Japanese were calling it ケンメリ (Kenmeri) so we started calling it and spelling it Kenmeri before we knew the backstory.
