For your viewing pleasure, we at Japanese Nostalgic Car have uncovered quite possibly the most 1980s ad campaign ever implemented by an automaker. We give you, the Nissan “Major Motion” commercials from 1984. These aired in certain markets around the United States as Datsun/Nissan dealership promos, and they were doing everything they could to make Nissan look like the brand of the future.
Incidentally, these also look like synthwave music videos and we mean this in the best way possible. Although there are is a whole ad campaign out there these are just some of our favorites.
I don’t think the Nissan Sentra has ever looked anywhere near as awesome as it did in this commercial. I love the vector style mountains in the background and contrasting reds and blues.
Of course the 300ZX always looks as cool as it does in this commercial. This is a perfect example of the appeal of the Z31. It’s so radical, and the 80s were such a great decade. Come Alive, Come and Drive!
