Sayin’ it like it is:

Of course, it’s an ad for an electric car produced by Nissan, but there are numerous reasons why Nissan has jumped into the electric vehicle market, and why it genuinely sees electric cars as the future. You can view the above commercial as simply an attempt to sell one of the cars in its lineup, but I think it is an actual expression of Nissan’s belief that the electric car is the future of the automobile. The big remaining question is when they will start to dominate sales (outside of Norway).

    Brian Maragno (senor manager) is apparently trying to enlighten us by striking an intelligent chord… It would really help bring the message home if he used the subjunctive tense properly. He repeats the phrase “if the car was invented today…” several times in this spot, instead of using the correct grammar of, “if the car were invented today…”. You lose credibility into “insightful intellectual insights” when you cannot speak incorrectly.
