Serious automotive testing - Click above to watch the video after the break

These days, cars and trucks need to pass a slew of strict testing procedures before they can be certified for sale. Included among these procedures are tests for safety, emissions, performance and reliability. Though they're surely a hassle for automakers and one reason it's so difficult to bring a new model to market, these tests are also why today's cars are better than they've ever been before.

Apparently, things are done a little differently in Europe. While we might have guessed that today's Funny Car Commercial was made by Citroen – quite possibly the quirkiest automaker in existence – the advertisement is actually from French automaker Renault. Though the ad says it's "99% Serious," we kinda think they've got it backwards. Click past the break to see what we mean, and check out veryfunnyads.com for more hilarious car commercials from around the world.

      what's autoblog.com's business relationship to veryfunnyads.com ?
        • 5 Years Ago
        JustGuessing is on the right track, but it's more than just "affiliated."

        Autoblog is a member of Weblogs, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of AOL LLC, which itself is a managed by TimeWarner as an independent holding. (TimeWarner owns AOL with limited liability by not having it directly bankrolled into the corporate bottom line.)

        TimeWarner owns TBS, and TBS owns veryfunnads.com

        Both Autoblog and veryfunnyads are tertiary holdings of TimeWarner.

      This is what I love about Renault: they are only 99% serious, a far cry from the 99.99% of other automakers.

      This was infinitely better than the last Jeep commercial I saw on tv.
