Nissan spoofs its spoof video in this 1996 Maxima restoration

A while back, a guy posted a spoof video making fun of luxury car commercials in order to sell his, shall we say, less than perfect 1996 Nissan Maxima. The video went viral and Nissan decided to buy the car. They then put it to a vote on their social media channels and fans wanted to see the Maxima restored.

So, Luxury Restored was made. After procuring the car and making the restoration, Nissan reached out to the original owner who made that spoof and asked him to make a spoof of that. So he did. And it’s awesome.
