French car brand Citroen is capitalising on its two-year sponsorship of Channel Four’s First Dates format with a set of fun idents set to run from next week through the remainder of the year.

Each mini-movie begins with a blossoming driver-passenger romance, only for matters to be brought crashing back down to Earth when the humorous reality of the outside world is revealed.

The tongue-in-cheek campaign marks the first major work to be produced by Havas to reflect Citroen’s ‘Love a Little Frencher’ UK marketing approach, which seeks to couple French romance with a twist of British grit.
