Like a boss - that’s how the Japanese carmaker defines its vans' driving feeling when it comes to running through the desert to deliver an outstanding package. Released last week, the comprehensive "Tough Guys" digital and print campaign once again proves Mickey Rourke still has it. The action star is not saying much, but his attitude remains the same tough-guy approach he had his fans accustomed to.

The same applies to the Rocky star Carl Weathers, who is seen asking for a returned favor from the retired hero turned flower merchant. In fact, that’s what Nissan’s van is used for on a regular basis, delivering goods and whatnot. This time around, the two are forced to fend off a gang of angry locals (led by Raymond Cruz) to save the day for one powerful leading lady (played by Ruiz).

As the classic action parody unfolds, the features of Nissan Commercial Vehicles are shown, including their successful Commercial Van Limited Warranty, and, of course, the performance of the suspension, anti-lock brakes, anti-corrosion features, and powertrain.

If you haven't seen it yet, the 6-minute video bellow should help you start the week on the right foot. If you feel like watching more, you should know that four 45-second product-focused videos highlighting the prominent features of the NCV fleet also are available.

"We want to bring attention to the durability and efficiency that small business owners can expect from Nissan's commercial vehicles," said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications and Media, Nissan North America, Inc. "These vehicles endure more than 7,000 tests during the development process, compressing 13 years of real-world use into about three months. The results are highly dependable vehicles for our owners."
