This is the story of a Citroën that was already out of stock even before its release date and that a great fortune like Elon Musk couldn’t even afford. Do you have it?
A Buzzman campaign visible on billboards from 21 June and in the national press from 23 June.
Remember the mobility object that looks like a toaster? Citroën has decided to release a very limited edition My Ami Buggy, a more design and crazy version than its little sisters in the Ami range already known to the general public.
For the launch of this exceptional novelty, on 21 June from 12 noon 50 models were sold in less than 18 minutes and buyers will have the privilege of personalizing the front plate of their My Ami Buggy and having an exclusive numbered plate on the dashboard. . And if you were wondering if it is still possible to offer it to you, know that My Ami Buggy is already sold out and that not even a billionaire will be able to have it.
To give them the bad news, Citroën wanted to challenge Elon Musk, the future first billionaire in history, by addressing him directly through a campaign of well-heard slogans. “Sorry Elon, the only way to get one is to redeem us.”
The campaign is visible on DOOH in Paris and Cannes from 21 June and in the French national press from 23 June.
