Renault’s bruising ballet is a joy to behold

Renault This long-overdue take on pompous car commercials also ranks as the classiest demolition derby I’ve ever seen. Where the hell do they film these things? I don’t think I’ve seen terrain like that on earth, or anywhere outside a T.S. Eliot poem. Still, the buildup from clipping the side mirrors to the full head-on collisions is nice. I’d love to see a follow-up where two cars are driving up a winding mountain road, when suddenly they crash and tumble hood-over-trunk into the ocean, which winding mountain roads in ads invariably overlook.
