Nissan to Feature Fan-Made Instagram and Vine Videos in TV Commercial

– “Your Door to More” video contest will highlight fan passions and all-new Versa Note –

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The all-new 2014 Nissan Versa
Note is much more than a means of transportation. It’s your door to more
of the things you love to do. That’s why Nissan is inviting users of
Instagram and Vine to celebrate their passions in their own short
videos. All entrants have the chance to win prizes and see their
creations in a national Nissan TV commercial.

As of today, aspiring videophiles can visit
for details about the contest, including sample videos and a printable
kit containing cutout versions of the Versa Note. To enter the
competition, users make a six-to-15 second video on Vine or Instagram
about what they love, include at least one Versa Note cutout, and then
post the video with the #VersaVid hashtag. A total of six winners will
receive $1,000 gift cards to help fuel their passions, and
three of those winners will have their videos featured in a Nissan TV ad
to promote the Versa Note later this year. Video submissions will be
accepted until 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, August 5.

“Cars don’t just take us places. They help us chase dreams, seek
adventure, and enjoy life to the fullest,” said Jon Brancheau, vice
president, Marketing, Nissan North America. “We want to celebrate that
freedom and the creativity it can inspire.”

The “Your Door to More” video contest is inspired by the 2014 Nissan
Versa Note, a second-generation hatchback with a sculpted, modern and
energetic look that reflects the active lives of its target buyers. The
Versa Note is an exceptional combination of versatility, technology and
value that features best-in-class fuel economy and total interior
volume.* It’s a kid friendly and adult-comfortable vehicle that enables
owners to take their friends and family anywhere they want to go – and
do a whole lot more of what they love along the way.
