Honey I shrank the Nissan

When Nissan Canada wanted an ad for the hot version of its Corolla-fighter, the Sentra, the creative types had to think of a way around the country's restrictions on showing speed and Lewis Hamilton-style hoonery. The solution? Shrink the Sentra SE-R down to 1/10th size and film that instead.

We're usually loathe to write about adverts on CNET Australia, because that's what manufacturers pay us to run on our site, but we'll make an exception for this one. For one, it's stupidly cool. And secondly you can't buy this car down under.

Even better than the ad itself is the making of video, which shows us the tricks and equipment they used to film the spot. To pique your interest we'll reveal that part of the ad was shot with a Canon EOS 5D dSLR camera mounted on a remote control helicopter.
