Here’s the ad,
The ad starts off with the wealthy-looking Arabs leaving the hotel and encountering the new Nissan vehicle. When they discover its fuel-efficient features, one man – shown wearing the traditional long white dress with a gold-lined black cloak – kicks the tire, then jumps onto the hood and starts pounding his fists on the windscreen.
All the while, security guards try to restrain him, as he shouts and screams and curses at the car.
At the end of the commercial, the voice-over says, “It’s clear the oil companies won’t like you.”
The humor-deficient Saudis want an apology: Saudi official slams “racist” Israeli Nissan ad.
Shows rich Arabs attacking fuel-efficient car
Portraying someone as rich = racism?
