You may recall that last fall Amazon was selling the Nissan Versa Note. Well, sort of. When customers placed orders online, Amazon would connect them with local dealers to complete the process. This was a short-term promotion that Amazon and Nissan worked on together.
For the first 100 people who placed their orders on Amazon, they received $1,000 Amazon gift cards and one of them got an extra surprise. They would have their Versa Note delivered in the biggest Amazon box ever.
With the exception of the actual customer, Nissan was planning on making the delivery a big surprise with a video and press release. But not too surprisingly, someone took a picture of the giant Amazon box strapped to the back of a truck and posted it on Reddit.
With the internet doing what it does best, the picture quickly spread and Nissan’s surprise was spoiled, but not completely. We still don’t know who the actual recipient of the car was. Nissan is planning on releasing that information in its originally planned video later this month.
If you had the option, would you want your new Nissan car delivered in a giant Amazon box?
