Nissan Brazil asks if you have damned ponies under your hood

The advertising world is a scary and confusing place – even when the message in question is in your language. Dive into the murky depths of foreign commercials, and our eyes go glassy quicker than you can say, "Não entendo." Take what looks to be an official Brazilian ad for Nissan trucks in the video after the jump. In it, some hapless soul is apparently plagued by cursing computer-generated My Little Pony knockoffs. The vindictive little airborne equines happily mock the driver after he gets his vehicle buried in frame-deep mud. Apparently there's a difference between pony power and horsepower.

There's even a special treat for those who hang around after the video wraps up. The adorable little ponies apparently have a very dark side to them – one seemingly hellbent on creating a viral video (something they appear to have done handily, as the video after the jump has registered over four million views in just the last few days).

You can check out the original version of the ad after the jump as well as a translated take for us monolingual-types. Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to go start a country-folk-punk fusion band called the Damned Ponies.
