VIDEO: Return of the evil snowmen!

Almost three years ago, Walt awarded the coveted WWW Excellence in Advertising Award (known as a "Wally") to the agency which created "Winter Warrior" -- that's the official title but I like "Evil Snowmen" better -- for Nissan Canada. The spot featured menacing snowmen (or snowwomen -- hard to tell the difference) trying to stop a Nissan Rogue, and failing of course. After over 3,000,000 hits the ad was taken off YouTube, but Ed. has found a recent repost, which you can view by clicking here.

After the mild winters of 2015 and 2016, the evil snowmen are back! They look a bit cuter this time -- less threatening to younger viewers, perhaps -- but they're still trying to stop that Rogue, and still failing... left out in the cold, as it were. Enjoy.

Note from Ed.: No, we don't get a dime from Nissan or the ad agency or even YouTube for posting this. We just like it. That's all.
