    Nissian truck Heisman Commercial

    Has anyone else seen the commercial where the Heisman trophy is chained down in the bed of a Nissan truck and all these real life mascots are coming after it? They have a longhorn, a buffalo, a Trojan on a horse, a big buckeye rolling after it, a mountaineer just all these different things chasing it trough like a desert then at the end this Cyclone forms out of the dust to start chasing it down and then at the end of the commercial it says “chasing the heisman” I just thought it was nice that ISU was put into this commercial in a big way at the end.

    yeah but they put in a lot of mascots who arent in the race. the cyclone was just something they could put in the background to make it more busy

    I think this has been discussed already, but it is neat.

    I believe its more likely that the Nissan commerical makers were thinking about the Miami hurricanes - but whatever trips your trigger

    Re: Nissian truck Heisman Commercial

    I dont know clones_jer, that sure looks like a cyclone to me. A hurricane would invlove water and some big clouds with an eye or something. Definitely more of a cyclone than a hurricane.

    I think the commercial (part 1) also shows the Big 12 has some badas_ mascots, with Ralphie, Bevo, the Sooner Schooner and what we'll call a Cyclone all making an appearance. Did I miss any?

    I hear they wanted the Wisconsin Flying "W", but UW's compliance office couldn't be contacted because they were too busy busting highschool teams that begin with the same letter.

    I think its actually a tornado ... are there any Division I Tornados? Don't think so ... how does it go? Help me if I'm wrong future meterologists, but I beleive a Cyclone is a general name for typhoons and hurricanes or even any storm with "cyclonic (rotating)" properties.

    they're like us ... a funnel cloud turns into a bird, only they haven't try to incorporate both in one - yet.

    Re: Nissian truck Heisman Commercial

    The term "cyclonic" has to do with the direction that a storm rotates. Therefore, any storm that hits North America has cyclonic flow. The specific storm that produces a high storm surge and resides near the groud is, in North America, termed a hurricane. Therefore, all of our storms possess cyclonic flow, but only certain storms produce a tornado or cyclone, which can be used interchangeably. I'm not 100% sure on all of this, but I believe it is correct.

    its an ibis...

    According to folklore, the ibis is the last form of wildlife to take shelter prior to a hurricane and the first to reappear after the storm passes.
