    Saw it last night (whilst watcing T3), pretty funky ad. What puzzles me is that 4Car claim it shouldn't be airing until the 19th when the C4 is released in the UK. Anyhow, the 3 door looks pretty neat, if I were in the market for a new small car I'd be tempted to take a look at one (always had a thing for Citroens).

    They should have stuck with the original music if it was going to dance like that ;)

    haha funny havenT' seen that ad over here...
    on the C4: the 3 door version looks a lot better than the 5 door version who looks a lot like the new focus (boring)

    citroen always had alot of ideas in the past for neat features the c4 with it's (at first look odd steering wheel) is no exception..

    Transformers...robots in disguise




    yeah, it is indeed by Les Rythmes Digitales and it's on the Darkdancer album. The track is called "Jacques Your Body". It's over 5 years old now though!

    I think that is a really cool commercial. The music and dancing is awesome. Sorry, but the commercial wouldn't encourage me to purchase the car though.

    These days the best special effects are in TV commericals not movies.

    in terms of dance music in ads, it's an odd choice i think, but it works.

    wow! cool stuff! :D

    i reminded me of that transforming VW clip... but this is so much better.

    those robot conversions of a Mini Cooper are cool as well... hadn't seen them before. :)

    i guess a higher-res version of this vid might come out later... and maybe an interview with the studio that did it? i'll keep my eyes open....

    MUST BE BREACH OF COPYRIGHT!! :mad:

    If you watch it transform it does it in the same style of the re-issue of Smokescreen.

    Or the original (1986) Prowl, Jazz or Smokscreen.

    PAh!! :mad:
    Someone should sue!!! :mad:

    i saw it for the first time this lunch time, it was really clever!

    i think it looks pretty sweet, i suppose the same goes for the rest of the citeroen line up, but i still wouldnt buy one! is the c4 to replace the xsara?

    Very nicely done - I'd like to see more, maybe even more than one car transforming, though...
