In 1999, you could still buy a brand-new Peugeot 504 in Argentina. With such a classic French automobile available, Renault’s marketers had to come up with an extra-special advertising gimmick to move those Clios off the lot. How about El Diablo?
For you non-Spanish speakers (I can’t find a good subtitled version), it goes like this: Satan (in snazzy red silk tie) offers the Clio driver women, money, and power in exchange for his soul. Driver refuses. Satan tells driver he doesn’t understand anything about life. Driver responds “You don’t understand anything about cars!” and evades the onrushing trucks via a suspension-of-disbelief-required maneuver on the dirt shoulder. Would this have happened in a Peugeot 504? No, because Satan would have fallen asleep due to the spacious back seat and comfy 504 ride.
