More great period French car ads

Came across these while searching for 405 material and couldn’t resist :) Très amusant!

And an epic little promotional film:

These pretty much sum up why we’re attracted to French cars— because they are weirdly wonderful, just like these ads.

  1. OH MY GOODNESS!!! I hadn’t seen that Citroën XM promo video since I visited my friend’s grandpa’s house when I was about 6 years old. Wow did that bring back memories. In Brazil when the car came out everyone was crazy about all the electronic stuff on it and all that. Very cool to see this again.

  2. Woah. That first 205 advert is incredible. What has happened to car commercials? Now they’re all the same: a black/silver/white car driving through Big Sur or a deserted urban downtown.
