Nissan has launched a new campaign marking the 50th anniversary of the moon landings.

The ad spot considers the advances that have been made in technology since the 1969 event, including astronauts in zero-gravity environments.

It eventually zooms back in on earth to focus on a driver of Nissan's Qashqai car.

The spot will air on ITV tomorrow (16th July), and will run across Europe.

It will be supported by cinema, press, digital, and social activities.

The campaign was created by TBWA, with planning and buying from Manning Gottlieb OMD.

Commenting on the launch, Nissan Europe content and engagement general manager Xavier Diquet said: “Technology for the sake of technology is worthless - what matters is how it makes you feel.

"At Nissan, this is exactly what we strive for: to give drivers a greater, more exciting, amplified driving experience thanks to the power of Nissan Intelligent Mobility innovations“.
