Citroen C3 Ad 'The Face' Has A Very Familiar One

Now where I have seen this before? And then it hit me like a 'Sledgehammer' - the new French automaker's commercial 'The Face' is very reminiscent of the iconic rock video by Peter Gabriel. The animated spot features a driver singing the cover version of the song 'Hit the Road Jack' while the landscape and settings around him morph using stop-motion animation. Not the most original idea but the ad still works, as most people buying the car model were probably not born when 'Sledgehammer' was even released back in 1986.
