The Nissan GT-R marketing team is hunting down Porsche owners – Click above to watch video after the jump

The GT-R is an aggressive car, and Nissan has taken aim at Porsche owners in an aggressive marketing campaign. A team of ladies in Germany driving a brand new GT-R have taken to the streets, targeting parked Porsches. Armed with a removable decal that shows the tail-end of a Nissan GT-R, the ladies affix the "ad" to the front windshield of the Porsche. The Porsche owner returns to his or her car, sits down and sees the GT-R's taillights staring right back.

It sounds funny, but we prefer that people keep their hands off O.P.P (yeah you know me! ... anyone?). Click past the jump to view the clip and let us hear your thoughts in the comments; is this clever marketing or toeing the vandalism line?

      Because "it's a Porsche". Ever see that bit Top Gear/Jeremy Clarkson did about "I f@*ked your daughter but it's OK 'cause I drive a Jaaaaag".

      Well, "it's a Porsche".

      P.S. Autoblog, your comment system sucks, especially when it notifies me that an email has been sent to my address but in reality it's censoring my post.

      Yea, but there's a big difference between the way a Nissan drives and a Porsche!

      2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS lapped the Nurburgring in less than 7:28...this must be an old video. I agree though that no one should be touching my car, regardless of it being "harmless" or not.

      not vandalism but littering. i hate people who put flyers on my car, i make an effort NOT to patronize businesses who do this type of advertising.

      If this was in the US, you could simply get into your car with the ad still there, crash, sue Nissan, and win enough to buy a GT-R, or a better Porsche.

      I wouldn't consider this vandalism because it is a static cling. However some people get really over protective of their cars and would probably freak out. At least nissan had the brains to use two blonds to put the decal on rather then some ugly guy.

      This is the reason 911 is better than gt-r

      They should market to potential Porsche buyers, not people who currently have one. They are wasting their efforts on people who already have made a choice.

      If it were my car and I witnessed something like this, i'd walk over to their $90k Nissan and kick a nice big dent into their door.
      Drastic? Overboard? Overreaction?
      Maybe. But...
      Keep your hands off my ****ing car.

        No you wouldn't. Did you forget? You're only a bad a** on the internet.

        And if I'm wrong, then you'd still be in the wrong. They won't get arrested for placing a cling-on ad on your window, but you will for damaging their door.

        MiniMe,

        Really? How would you feel if someone walked up to your house and started sticking advertisements on your windows? In a world so oversaturated with advertisement, the last thing I need is for it on my personal property and in my face. Didn't you notice one of the guys getting out of his car in the video while pedestrians walked by laughing? Who the hell needs that?

        Andre,

        You'd then be charged with assault, you effing moron. Go act like a badass elsewhere.

        Andre,

        "How would you feel if someone walked up to your house and started sticking advertisements on your windows?"

        Your house is on private property, your car is on public roads. EXTREMELY HUGE DIFFERENCE!
