Off Topic Video: Slo-mo beach gallop--with a twist

It's no secret that the Hoof Blog is known almost as widely for launching unusual horse-related videos and commercials as for hoof-related stories. You saw the Budweiser Clydesdale ad here first and now you're seeing the new--and slightly weird--Citroen commercial.

The what?

Citroen is a French luxury car that isn't sold in the USA anymore, but that doesn't stop the firm from making creative commercials. We may never see them on our televisions over here, but this one is ready to become a web classic.

Nothing is more cliched than a blond galloping on the beach as a premise for a commercial, unless it's using a cute baby as a prop. And nothing needed to be parodied more. Enjoy--and use the social media buttons at the bottom of this post to pass it along! Let me know if you need any help!
