TBWA\Chiat\Day New York and Psyop got together to tell this story using roadkill as spokespeople. Well, they don't really speak as much as look utterly miserable, or sacred witless - but have no fear Michelin is here to say the day with their tires. *phew*

    This is just sickening, even worse than the other one about not needing to gas your car. I won't ever be buying michelin tires.
