Eng “In these two commercials, the car is so stable in driving conditions that a little dancer on the dashboard remains desperately motionless! Quite a surprising remake for a well know french creative agency. Copycat or coïncidence? Be the judge.”

Fr « Dans ces deux films publicitaires un petit danseur reste désespérément immobile sur le tableau de bord de la voiture, tellement celle-ci est stable en conditions de conduite. Un étonnant remake assumé, une coïncidence ou un recyclage honteux? À vous de juger. »

Be the judge!

    I remember the Audi one. It was a big hit here in Spain. All the gas stations sold cheap reproductions of the tacky little Elvis. I even bought one for my little kids to laugh with it. the music was a cover of “King of the Road”. Terrific ad.

    I just saw the Citroën commercial on TV and it instantly reminded me of that of Audi for their Multitronic system. So I googled it, thinking that people would have noticed the similarities too! And there you go! 😉
    If Citroën is aware of what they’re doing, then they’re really dumb. Those two commercials are exactly the same, this is so insane!
