Grace Jones became a garage in this weird as hell 80s car commercial

The ad was banned for allegedly promoting “excessive speeding.”

December 9, 2015

Old as it makes us feel to admit it, 1985 was a long time ago. In years, 30, but in practice, it feels like far more. Proving that, here’s an absolutely bizarre car commercial starring Grace Jones as, like… a garage.

It’s for Citroën, an automotive non-Europeans or people under the age of 40 might not be familiar with.

The commercial was quickly banned for allegedly promoting “excessive speeding,” which is a shame, because as advertisements go, it’s one of a kind. Kind of like Grace Jones, who at 67, is as striking as ever.
