Peugeot BB1 spotted in its natural habitat...France [w/VIDEO]

After enduring some amount of scorn and ridicule at the recently held Frankfurt Motor Show, the bizarre (and we're being kind) BB1 concept from Peugeot hasn't quietly disappeared graciously from the scene never to be heard from again. Indeed, the geometrically-challenged electric has instead sought out the company of those who might actually enjoy its Pushmi-pullyu-ness and who may invite it to pull up a chair and have a baguette or something. Yes, we're talking France. (Relaxe, c'est une blague. J'aime beaucoup les Français. Vraiment!) The St-Honoré market in Paris to be exact.
We understand it may be hard to believe the 2.5 meter (8.2 foot) long city car would dare show its fascia in public again after the critical drubbing its quizzical styling received, but you don't have to take our word for it. The apparently emotionally-resilient auto was captured ferrying several fiscally-compensated actors about the City of Light in a reality-augmented video that we believe is meant to demonstrate the functionality of its trick interior as well as its, um, one-of-a-kind exterior. Does this mean it will someday go into production? We're willing to bet big bucks on "no." Hit the jump for all the BB1 action your stomach can handle.
