Last year, Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII was moonlighting as a Louis Vuitton model. Now in 2017, she’s back with another gig. This time, she’s selling cars in China.

She’s joined by Snow Villiers in a somewhat perplexing TV spot. People are wearing VR in Nissans? So they can take car trips with FFXIII characters?
