Nissan gets the joke, unlike Ferrari

While Ferrari’s legal team missed the brilliant marketing opportunity, Nissan realized it was too good to pass up.

We’ve recently written about how Ferrari has threatened to take legal action against Canadian DJ Deadmau5 for giving his 458 Spider a Nyan Cat-themed redesign, and in particular for replacing Ferrari’s original logo and other badges by custom ones. The legal department of Disney joined in on the argument, too, disapproving of the resemblance between Deadmau5’s logo and... Mickey Mouse. Yep.

Thankfully, there are people who get a joke. Nissan has recently tweeted a picture of a GTR sporting a Nyan Cat-themed décor, offering to ship one to the DJ if he wants it. The pictures show virtual designs, but boy did they pay attention to detail. You can even spot a tiny mouse logo.

Hats off to the marketing people at Nissan for having a good sense of humour and a feel for zeitgeist. The score? Nissan-Ferrari 1:0. 

Deadmau5 himself appreciated the offer and has already named the car OMFGT-R.

The last Panzerwagen

It wasn’t the biggest of all S-Classes but according to many it was the best. And at the pinnacle of the Mercedes line-up of the 80’s sat this big coupe with the huge V8 engine.
