VA-VA-VOOM TURNS OOH-LA-LA: To celebrate the launch of its new Clio, Renault taps into its French roots and treats two lucky guys to a burlesque show....ooh la la.

Themed test drives are becoming a frequent occurrence as automakers try to up the ante for their latest products. Unsuspecting customers are invited for a test drive with a twist, usually involving elaborate stunts and hidden cameras to capture the action.

Renault celebrates the launch of its fourth-generation Clio by tapping its French roots to give customers a taste of, well, France...


The video shows a lucky guy taken on a UK test drive of a new Clio being treated to a street show of French clichés, among them a baguette salesman and a couple kissing in front of a painting of the Eiffel Tower.

The highlight includes a very racy burlesque show with scantily clad dancers... very ooh-la-la.
