Remember how Nissan was the first big car company to use Apple's iAds in iOS? Looks like the love goes both ways.

In the brand new commercial/information video for the just-announced iPhone 4s, Apple shows off the all-electric Nissan Leaf oh-so-briefly. The car isn't doing anything in particular in the ad (except maybe providing an extra-quiet cabin to command Siri, Apple's new voice recognition assistant), but it's not often that a plug-in car gets this sort of treatment in a big-time tech ad. And you can bet a lot of people will see to video and go, "Wait, what kind of car is that?"

The video spot is not embeddable, so you'll have to go here to see it. As we were watching, we half expected a polar bear to show up and give the driver a hug. You?

      @1:31 check out the steering wheel. Doh! @1:36 but that's not all... the best feature of the 4S is that it hovers in space! Apple is definitely off its game. The event today was lame in so many ways. Nano is a software update. Touch has a new color (wowsy!). Old phone has speaking app installed, a slightly faster chip. It is new technology postponed at the slowest drip possible. Both thumbs down.

      Too bad you have to download Apple's proprietary Quicktime player to view the video (which I'm not going to do). Eventually someone will put it on youtube anyway.
