Starting today, upwardly mobile Facebook users can visit 
to have Epps talk them up as an adrenaline junkie, an incurable romantic or a
business dynamo in a customized, shareable video. Participants will also be able
to enter to win one of three grand prizes: a  $1,000  Great American Days
Experience gift card for an adventure-filled day for two, a one-night stay at an
upscale hotel and dinner at an exclusive restaurant for a romantic night for
two, or a  $1,000  Nordstrom or Brooks Brothers gift card for a stylish new
wardrobe. Contest entries will be accepted until  11:59 p.m. EDT  on  May 1st.

"Who doesn't want to turn heads and get noticed when making a first impression?"
said  Jon Brancheau, vice president, Marketing, Nissan North America. "We're
giving everyone a chance to look their best, with a little help from Nissan and
the power of social media."

Inspired by the all-new 2013 Nissan Sentra, Nissan developed the "Impress With
Sentra" program to build awareness of the vehicle among potential customers
looking for a stylish and fuel-efficient small car. Sentra's all-new design is
elegant, modern and refined, reflecting a "professional" character targeted at
upwardly bound buyers who aspire to drive something more premium than some of
the other designs in the segment. The Sentra focuses on class-above design
standards inside and out, as well as efficiency in engineering. Not
surprisingly, the all-new seventh generation design stands as the most
innovative and sophisticated Sentra in the nameplate's 30-year history.
