Nissan Dealership Hoped Trump Piñata Stunt Would Drive Sales

Would watching a car dealer bashing a Trump piñata make you buy a new Nissan Altima? That’s what Nissan of Van Nuys General Manager Martin “El Guapo” Cuevas may have been hoping for when he appeared in this TV commercial. While taking a few hacks at the piñata, Cuevas declares: “Aqui en Nissan de Van Nuys, los Latinos mandan. Somos Latinos ayudando los Latinos. Por eso, mira mis especiales.”

They just couldn’t get enough of Trump.

After the commercial leaked, Nissan of North America denounced the ad.

“We find these advertisements to be neither responsible or respectful, and we do not condone what they represent. We expect our dealers to establish advertising that is responsible and respectful and represents the best interest of the Nissan brand,” said Nissan in a statement.

The dealership later issued an apology on its website.
