Dualis sunroof leads to relationship breakup in new Nissan ad

A new ad for the Nissan Dualis sees a boyfriend dumped after a skywriter sabotages his proposal because he takes a fancy to the woman after seeing her through the car’s panoramic sunroof.

The ad – “Sky writing” – was created by Whybin\TBWA and directed by Brendon Gibbons of production house Curious.

The ad is not the first time Dualis has been advertised in an unconventional way. In 2008, eccentric film director Tony Kaye shot a surreal ad for the Dualis which only aired a few times:
