Classic Ad Watch: The Ruh-Nowlt Doe-Feen

Handy as roller skates and twice the fun! This late-50s ad for the Renault Dauphine, with pronunciation appropriate for surrender-monkey-hatin' Americans, played up the cuteness angle with balloons tied to the car and bouncy music. The double horn (one for city, one for country) looks like an interesting feature, though not interesting enough to sell many Dauphines in the US of A.
