The Michelin Man Has a Terrifying Past
The Michelin Man, like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man before his turn inGhostbusters, is a charmingly obese fixture in our lives. Fluffy, benevolent and concerned only with the quality of the world’s tires, Monsieur Michelin flits through our automotive world, introducing new products and kissing babies at auto shows. He embodies the word “rubber” with none of the sex, “Michelin” without any of its snobby, foodie vibe. Do you want to hug the Michelin Man? Yes. Of course you do.
