The new Murano is the cure for Mondays

Starting off the week with mountains of unanswered emails and constant communication flashing across phone screens is the hectic reality of the modern world.

Which is why Nissan’s spot for the 2020 Murano, directed by Wayne McClammy, is titled “Mondays.”

In the ad, from TBWA\Chiat\Day, Mondays are filled with chaos in the office, especially for this well-liked and approachable boss. As her day at work comes to an end, she is met with “just one last thing” and hordes of her employees fighting to grab her attention with endless requests and questions.

Then as she steps into her car, even greater mayhem breaks out as her employees attempt a car chase and are flailing papers at the back of a semitruck in the continuation to get into contact with their boss.

However, once she is inside her car, she is given the luxury of having control and getting away from her all-consuming work life in the 2020 Murano.
