Citroen: rockin’ like it’s 1919

Our favourite daft French manufacturer remixes a brilliant little vid charting 90 years of strangeness

Whatever you were planning to do for the next 90 seconds, stop it right now. Unless there's, like, a fire or something, in which case proceed calmly to the nearest exit.

Otherwise, turn up your speakers and enjoy this little bit of loveliness from Citroen.

It's a brilliant advert celebrating 90 years of defiantly Gallic car-building and features 2CVs, DSs, Seb Loeb sliding round corners, that mad C-Cactus concept, the Pope, grimy old factories and, oh, loads of other excellent stuff, all to a rather fine soundtrack.

Yeah, we know 90 isn't the most significant anniversary, but we'll let it slide, simply because it's such a damn fine little slice of televisual excellence.

Just imagine what they'll do for the 100th anniversary, too...

Now share it...
