Car ad brings Hanna-Barbera's 1960s 'Wacky Races' to life

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (3 votes)

This 1'16" TV adv’t for the Peugeot 208, parodying Hanna-Barbera’s animated Wacky Races of the 1960s, is barely anthropomorphic due to the last-second appearance of Muttley; but it’s so clever that I’ll take any excuse to include it here. Directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet at Partizan/Movie & Art in … well, eight offices around the world from Paris to Los Angeles to Mumbai; commissioned for Peugeot by the Y&R Brasil advertising agency in São Paulo.

GREAT commercial, and thanks for finding a loophole to post it under. Oh, did the memories come flooding back!
