Nissan’s Self-Cleaning Car Pranks Passersby
Niss | nissan | technology | December 3, 2014
Nissan is headed to the streets and to the world of YouTube to show off the technology behind what it’s calling the “world’s cleanest car.” The Nissan LEAF is finished with Ultra-Ever Dry paint which is able to repel just about any liquid. While the super-hydrophobic and oleophobic coating is still being developed, and Nissan currently has no plans to bring it to production cars, the technology looks to be promising.
Nissan will be launching a series of viral campaigns to show off the potential of the clean tech. First up is The Nissan Paint Prank shown above. The pristine white Nissan LEAF is subjected to an unfortunate series of events ending in the car being covered with paint. The unsuspecting passersby are led to believe they’ve just been part of a horrible disaster and made a very mad Nissan owner. Of course, a little water and everything looks good as new, thanks to Ultra-Ever Dry!
Nissan will also launch a series of videos on their Instagram page, where fans will be to first guess what soft of crud is being poured on the Nissan then they will get to decide what will be used next to see if they can come up with a substance that sticks. I’m going to go for whatever is inside a Milk Dud, because that always seems to get stuck to my teeth.
