In a follow up to my previous post – here is the Nissan Pathfinder commercial from the same year as the Nissan 300ZX commercial.
The second commercial from Nissan featuring Barbie, GI Joe and Ken promotes Nissan’s Pathfinder and features the song â€œCalling Dr. Love,â€ by KISS.
Nissan soon heard grumblings coming from Mattel’s legal department. Apparently, they disliked the way poor Ken was portrayed and let Nissan know about their feelings in no uncertain terms. Nissan quickly agreed to suspend further production of the GI Joe vs Ken spots and that was that. Fortunately, GI Joe and Barbie had already ridden off into the sunset, taking Nissan up on its offer toâ€¦â€Enjoy the Ride.â€
