Renault 5 Is Good for Saving Mermaids
Nearly 5.5 million were built, but we’re more interested in grandpa’s track record with the ladies... it’s gaming skills as it were. From what we’ve been able to find out, this campaign was run in France starting March 1989 in print only. But why a mermaid?
The word mermaid is a combination o the French word for sea and maid - a young girl or woman. Usually, sailors would be attracted by the beautiful songs of these creatures and end up in their watery graves.
But this surfer stud seems to have stumbled upon a beached beauty. Is he going to throw this one back until she’s a legal catch or is he going to put her in the car and bring her to her mother. Either way, the Renault 5 is the only car in history to have rescued a mermaid.
