Mr. Wind



This commercial is old--it's from 2007--but since Provence is in the grips of the vent du sud, it's the perfect time to share it. (As opposed to the mistral, which blows north to south and leaves blue skies, the vent du sud blows in the other direction, bringing clouds and usually rain.) Anyway, the commercial is funny and poignant and very well done....definitely a classic. I love Mr. Wind, his hat and his accent. Enjoy!

  1. This is great Julie. I love good commercials. And, in fact, it has everything to do with Provence. We're on day two of a mistral and the soil is blowing out of my pots and my terrace looks like a farm field. So, according to mistral rules, either tomorrow will be the last day or we'll have to wait four more for this to blow over.

  5. Hilarious ad. Thanks for sharing. I linked to it on my Facebook page. I think these winds are from the east so that means it's not a mistral. About as irritating, though.

  12. My husband and I just arrived home to Texas on Tuesday from Arles and the Provence area. We experienced the wind 1st hand. I thought I would not be effected since I grew up in South Texas along the gulf coast. Our toll ticket for A9 blew right out the car door when we stopped to get gasoline! How fast was it blowing last week.
