Secret Prototype Nikon Lens Cleaner for Canon Lenses
Cleverly disguising their new prototype Canon Lens Cleaner Mark 1 as an automobile windshield ice scraper, Nikon engineers went for that extra edge in marketing. For unknown reasons, the Nikon legal department scrapped the idea. Rumors that it is being redesigned as a print flattener for Canon pictures have not been confirmed.
With a planned advertising campaign of "So Simple a Child can do it," child is shown using Nikon Prototype Canon Lens Cleaner Mark 1 on his father's Canon 85/1.2 L lens in the secret Nikon Testing Laboratories. The whereabouts of child is presently unknown.
