The Renault Twingo is a joyful little French car that looks like a happy character in a Miyazaki film. It has those expressive little eye/headlights, rounded corners everywhere, and a size that just begs you to hug it. Clearly, the people who did the promotional photos in the 1990s for the first generation Twingo understood this, which is why seemingly every image of this car features people who look like they are having the best time, anyone, anywhere, has ever head.
What is even happening here? It’s a family. They’ve run off the road somewhere. The daughter/wife is wearing a very Sydney Sweeney-ish crop top. Everyone is so damn happy.
This woman took two hits of E, went to an all-night rave in the 13th, and has come down from her high only to realize she’s purchased a very affordable and nicely packaged Twingo.
This guy is shocked, the Twingo, with its centrally-mounted instrument panel, is apparently a great place to make out. This guy can’t believe it. There’s so much space in such a tiny footprint! He can’t even pay attention to his girlfriend/mistress!
These two people don’t even know each other. They just saw another person driving a Twingo and fell in love!
Ok, so the kid has met the grandparents, who also have a Twingo. Apparently the blonde is the daughter and the brunette is the mom? I hope. It’s France so…
What’s happening over there? These people seem curious.
These people are also curious, but they also know that whatever it is, it’s good.
Ah, of course, it’s a family ready for the beach! This seems to clearly be central France and nowhere near a place you could use a surfboard. Is that strange? Not if you own a Twingo. Owning a Twingo is like doing a rail of joy right off of Paddington Bear’s cute little hat.
Is it always daytime in Twingo world? Not at all. Sometimes it’s twilight and… stuff like this happens. Whatever this is.
Oh good, it’s day again, and we’re going to go play tennis in tennis shoes that are also pumps somehow.
Do you have globes? Are we a multi-ethnic grouping of friends? The Twingo accepts all.
Hey ladies! I’ve got a Twingo 2. Let’s make out in a field!
No idea, but it’s fun!
Thank you for this brief moment of happiness, Twingo. Would that I could evaporate into your world. Also thank you for Daniel Golson for pointing out the crazy site where I found all these.
