“With Dad,” as you can see, shows a family working through difficult times and a father and son struggling to remain close despite proximal distance. The ad introduced the never-before-seen GT-R LM NISMO and 2016 Nissan Maxima and received a great response from the public. It was voted the Favorite Super Bowl Commercial of 2015 and has over 22 million views on YouTube.

The emotional commercial ran as a part of Nissan’s “With Dad” campaign, which included donating funds to two organizations that are centered around helping people build better lives for them and their families–Habitat for Humanity and Wounded Warrior Project.

Nissan invited a few well-known YouTube channels to contribute to the campaign and post their #withdad video. Dude Perfect, a group a young men known for making trick shots and having fun, posted a video with their dads. Check it out!
