Nissan asks athletes to #DoItForUs
How do you promote a car manufacturer in a clever way to the Olympic and Paralympic games? I must admit, when we saw this trending we thought #FAIL, but watching Nissan’s video I have to say this is a definite #WIN.

Well played, Nissan.
There’s certainly some irony in the fact that #DigitalDetox was trending online this week.
Ofcom reported that, on average, Britons spend over 24 hours per week online (*guilty*) and that a third have attempted a ‘digital detox’ to their internet addiction – but only 25% of those barely lasting a day away from their screens. And the fact that we are reading about this online indicates we aren’t showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
