Nissan Challenges Man To Remember All Its New Bits And Bobs

Having only recently hit the market, the Nissan Juke, Micra, X-Trail & QASHQAI, boasts some of the most extensive spec updates and innovations the motoring company has released to date. So many new innovations and specifications in fact, that Nissan Australia recently challenged the man with the best memory in the world, Jonas Von Essen, to see if he could remember them all.

Labelled ‘The Human Spec Sheet’, a series of videos produced by Whybin\TBWA Group Melbourne sees Von Essen hurtling down an airstrip while attempting to recount every specification the cars have, from memory. From the three-point Emergency Locking Retractor Front Seatbelts with Seatbelt Pretensioners and Load Limiters, to the really hard stuff like where the cup holders can be found.

Von Essen is given only four minutes to recount up to 138 individual specifications straight off the top of his head. Driven by professional Nissan stunt driver Samantha Reid, these memory tests take place under what can only be described as ‘challenging’ circumstances.

Chris Mandile, Nissan Australia’s executive general manager for marketing said: “It can often be challenging to fully engage wider audiences with the finer details found in a new Nissan vehicle, especially when you consider the generous equipment levels, features and performance outputs available in every model, all of which is summarised in each model’s specification or ‘spec’ sheet. These enjoyable videos are a fresh approach to a commonly used medium and they live up to our philosophy of innovation that excites.”
