Ok Nissan, we get it. Electric cars and polar bears are good, and everything else with a gas engine is bad. Listen, you can’t take away the fact that this is a fabulous commercial that conveys not only the message of global warming, but that of the upcoming trend of electric cars, but lets be real here. This commercial makes the new 2011 Nissan Leaf out to be something that was invented by Greenpeace to solve the global automotive emission issue. I take my hat off to Nissan for developing the Leaf and I honestly believe that this car will help the progression of electric car technology. I also think that the commercial is a bit absurd in the fact that it seems as though Nissan is giving themselves one hell of a pat on the back for developing a car that can’t go over 100 miles before it rolls to a stop. So Nissan, please keep up the good work, but let’s not get too crazy with congratulating yourselves just yet. Just my two cents…

    Amen. Precisely what needs to be said about that commercial.

    I agree with the commercial comments. One actor comment. What kind of cajones do you need to stand and get a hug from a 10′ tall polar bear??

    this car is more suited to people that live downtown and live 4 or 5 blocks away from their work, that’s the only sense i can make of it.
    i’d probably never buy one if i had to use the highway daily or had long commutes.

    another thing everyone else if forgetting, where do you get you electricity from ? coal-fired generators ?
    it’s only good for the environment if it comes from a 100% clean source of energy (wind, water, solar), and that just increases the costs of energy.
    So you’ll end up paying more per mile perhaps!

    Another thing people seem to forget, and it certainly isn’t said in mass media. If I remember correctly from my early years of education, we were told in science class that we were coming up on the end of an ice age. Now common sense tells me that, since ice is cold and all, if you come to the end of an ice (cold) age then it can only get warm. So it only goes to reason that the world is going to get warmer, with or without us. I guess, in this PC world, that as long as a group of people can get a warm fuzzy feeling about whatever their cause is then the world can’t be a bad place after all.

    My only regret is that I won’t be around long enough to sit back, point my finger and laugh at all the people that are arrogant enough to think that this world will live or die by our actions. We are but a speed bump in the time and travels of this world.
