Nissan - We Learn from Racing
This is a Chiat/Day-produced Nissan TV spot from August, 1988, which I
briefly appeared in. The desert "race" sequences were filmed at Jawbone
Canyon, about 100 miles north of Los Angeles. After a full day of shooting,
I appeared as the second set of headlights in the dust, 22 seconds into the
spot (I was driving my Class 7 Toyota race truck, behind the Nissan, of
course). Roger Mears drove the Budweiser Nissan.
While getting ready for one of the scenes, filming guys were taping little
perforated bags of store-bought dust in our wheel wells. I looked over at
Roger Mears in his truck and he just rolled his eyes - too funny.
