Nissan 370Z races Mexican chicken for TV ad (+video)

Nissan 370Z races Mexican chicken for TV ad (+video)

So you thought you were pretty choice that time you dragged your mate off at the lights, or that time you blew away that V8 Commodore through some twisty back roads. Well that’s all good, but you aren’t nothing till you’ve battled a fully trained Mexican racing chicken.

That’s right – a Mexican racing chicken, they’re out there and they are fast little critters. Nissan UK got involved recently and put it’s latest 370Z up against a racing chicken in a straight-up race for a TV advertisment. It was a brave move with the chicken expected to be quicker through the corners but the Z car has more power, through its 6-cylinder motor, on the straights.

The ad sets the scene for the race in a bleak underworld where poultry is put up against metal in reckless racing matches for bragging rights. This Mexican racing chicken goes by the name ‘Pepe’ and he’s not like the Tegal number 6 job you have in your freezer at home, he’s the real deal and Nissan really should have entered its GT-R into this battle to guarantee victory. Can the 370Z do it?

Think this is a joke, well you better watch the clip below and find out.
