- Special Website Opens, Campaign Offering "Stormtrooper" Armor, "JUKE" As
Prizes Starts -

Nissan Motor Co. announced on August 27 that it launched a new nationwide
communication campaign featuring the "Stormtrooper," a character which appears
in the "Star Wars" film series popular throughout the world, on August 26 when
the partly restyled "JUKE" model was put on the market.


The new communication campaign featuring Stormtroopers is designed to
highlight the new charms of JUKE and arouse consumer interest through a web
promotion blitz, which includes a special website, a web movie and Twitter.
The multifaceted, comprehensive campaign also involves a TV commercial, cinema
advertising (movie theater commercials) and storefront posters at Nissan
dealers. In the TV commercial, Stormtroopers meet JUKE, which influences them
and renders them into JUKE color.

Timed with the announcement of the partial JUKE remodeling, Nissan also
introduced a customized model, "15RX Personalized Package," to offer motorists
the joy and excitement of customizing a vehicle.

Special website:

About the special website

The special JUKE website opened on August 26, 2013. It carries the latest
information on the customized model of JUKE as well as a "Simulator" and a
"Special Movie."

About the Simulator

Using the Simulator, the viewer can change the color of the car body and also
fine-tune the specifications and colors of various car parts.

In addition, a Stormtrooper also changes to match a customized JUKE.

The Simulator allows the viewer to personally feel the allures of JUKE, which
can express the personality of each viewer.

About the movie

On August 26, the special website started showing the movie that coolly and
excitingly tells the story of Stormtroopers' encounter with JUKE. Nissan plans
to release its sequels as the promotional campaign unfolds.

The plot of the first movie:

An underground parking lot in Tokyo: A car pulls up in a parking lot, showing
its shadow only, and the viewer cannot identify it. However, the vehicle
illuminates its surroundings in red light. Stormtroopers on a reconnaissance
mission to the Earth appear on the scene and gaze at the red car. The vehicle
comes to a stop. Although the car is partially hidden by a column, one can see
it is a JUKE.

About the campaign

A "Get JUKE Campaign" also started with the opening of the website. To
participate in the campaign, the viewer only has to fill out the campaign form
provided and customize the Stormtrooper by selecting a color for it. A winner
for JUKE and Stormtrooper Armor will be selected by lottery. A special QUO
card will be given away to 100 people each, also to be chosen by lottery.
Viewers can also download free of charge a special wallpaper featuring a
customized Stormtrooper.
