In Nissan's new spot "Patrol Challenge," the automaker touts its recent entry into the Guinness Book of World Records. The Nissan Patrol, a SUV popular in other markets, claimed the world record of being the production vehicle that has pulled the heaviest aircraft -- a 179-ton cargo plane in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The advertisement contains footage from the actual event set against dramatic orchestral music. The previous record was set five years ago by a Volkswagen Touareg towing a Boeing 747 that weighed 15 tons less than the aircraft the Patrol hauled. The video enters our weekly list of the top 10 auto viral videos at No. 5, with 300,046 views.
Also new this week is Porsche's "Symphony," ranked seventh by Visible Measures with 197,437 views.
