Nissan Leaf ad featuring Lance Armstrong - Click above to watch video after the jump

As world-renowned cyclist extraordinaire Lance Armstrong tucks in with the rest of the peloton, he is overwhelmed by exhaust fumes, smog-infested air and sometimes even the stench of diesel cars. Wouldn't it be a joy for Armstrong and other fellow riders to tuck in behind something a lot more green and really clean? If you answered with a resounding yes, your thoughts are echoed by Nissan in its latest video of the Nissan Leaf.

Nissan choose Lance Armstrong as the first recipient of the Leaf and also appointed him as the official Leaf spokesperson. Who could possibly be better than seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Amrstrong to showcase the health-related reasons for buying a zero-emissions vehicle. Nissan's latest YouTube video features some really dirty cars, Mr. Armstrong and the Nissan Leaf in action. Follow us after the jump to watch Lance chase the Leaf while avoiding the toxic fumes of gasoline-powered cars. We can't help but wonder if the results would have been different at last year's Tour de France if Lance tailed the Leaf back then. Hat tip to Chris!
