Funny new Nissan Leaf commercial shows world where everything runs on gas

This funny new commercial for the Nissan Leaf asks the viewer to imagine a world where everything ran on gas. The resulting gasoline-powered toothbrush, walkman and dentist drill may seem awesome, we can see why it might also be rather problematic.

While the commercial's humorous, it's also interesting to note Nissan's decision to take a swipe at the Chevy Volt. While obviously it makes sense given the Volt is probably being cross-shopped versus the Leaf, I also think this means marketers believe that the Volt has replaced the Toyota Prius as the new green car to beat.
