We've seen some amusing videos over the years here at Autoblog, many of which have taken the form of clever advertisements. This latest one comes from French automaker Citroën, and as far as humorous ads go, this is quickly becoming one of our favorites.

In the video after the jump, Citroën humorously imagines what it must be like for someone driving a bare-bones car while wishing he was driving something newer with all the bells and whistles. You know, stuff like power windows, sat-nav, a stereo, keyless entry... all the things we'd take for granted on a new car. Click past the jump to watch, and trust us, it'll put a smile on your face.

      Citroen has an advertising department?!?!?!?!

      SimpleCar is an old Innocenti Mini (1974-1982... early 90ies for the last versions badged as DeTomaso), a rebodied version of the original british Mini.

      Almost as cool as the seat belt PSA from a while back. I would definitely check it out if it was sold here, but I am a sucker for a hatchback.

      Funny commercial but power windows, GPS, etc. in a Citroen C3 is no match for this Bertone-styled Innocenti Mini in original condition.

      Citroen should be available in the US
        • 4 Years Ago
        if french cars are imported to the US, we can call them : " Freedom-Fords" ....
        • 4 Years Ago
        actually, in america, we would call them cheese eating, surrender-motors.




        i do wish they would come back, though.

      I would do the same if I were driving an electric car...

      "....oh lord, won't you buy me a Citroen DS ...."
