Let us find out about the video of Plane Landing on Pickup Truck and learn if it is real or not.

Plane Landing on Pickup Truck?

The video is not a real footage, it is a cleverly made commercial advertisement for Nissan Frontier truck. The video below shows the original commercial advertisement.


As you can see the disclaimer in the video: Fictionalization. Do not attempt. Nissan Frontier’s tag line is “Nissan Frontier is a mid-size truck that acts like a full size, giving the driver the feeling they can tackle any obstacle.” This concept was shown in the form of failed landing plane manipulated footage by TBWA\Chiat\Day, the Los Angeles based ad agency. They made it look real developing the ad in the form of a News coverage. You can see the complete details about the advertisement in the reference section.

Any such real incident of a plane landing on pick up truck like that will simply crush the truck into pieces, causing damage to both truck and the plane. Therefore, the manipulated story is simply a hoax, and not a fact.
