Mondays at Work Don't Suck So Much Thanks to the Nissan Murano

Ride along with TBWA\C\D and Wayne McClammy

So, how was work on Monday? Anything interesting happen at the office? 

For instance, did every last member of the staff follow you out the door and down the staircase, seeking your guidance and approval on pending projects?

Maybe they shouted and emailed for your attention once you got inside your 2020 Nissan Murano mid-size crossover? Or draped a huge banner with third-quarter sales projections across the side of a multi-story parking garage? As you drove home, did they pull up beside you in a mobile conference room, eager to share updates and ideas? 

If you experienced all that, you're clearly the boss depicted in "Mondays," a lively new Nissan spot from TBWA\Chiat\Day New York and director Wayne McClammy, so you already know how the story goes. The rest of you can watch the commercial and find out if some measure of work/life balance awaits at the end of the road:

The ad continues the vehicle-as-oasis trend Nissan explored in a spot that positioned its Rogue SUV as a safe haven in a world where literally everyone is on their phones, and revisited for the Versa subcompact, albeit with a different vibe. Similar themes surfaced in this offbeat distracted driving PSA from New Zealand.

As for our seemingly indispensable exec, a word of advice: Delegate!
