In Juvisy-sur-Orge, the police chose humor in reaction to the riots. They released a video where they parody a Carglass commercial and it’s the dose of good humor that everyone needs.
A sign always comes to mind when you have a little windshield problem. With its advertisements , Carglass has made a small reputation, so much so that they are even parodied today by… police officers.
As we know, the situation has been very tense for several days in France. The police are on the front every night to limit the damage caused by the rioters. However, sometimes they too are the target of breakage, especially their vehicles.
In Juvisy-sur-Orge, in Essonne, a dozen police officers decided to release the pressure a little. They parodied the Carglass ad using one of their cars that was targeted during the riots.
At the start of the video, we therefore see a policeman in uniform holding, in his hands, a fairly large block: “It’s Hervé from Carglass. My client ? He took a small cobblestone from his vehicle. Suddenly, his windshield, he is ruined” , he declares facing the camera.
We then see a second man arrive on an electric scooter, speaking with a hair on his tongue, saying that an electric scooter will be offered for each broken windshield. A case that should not be missed as announced in chorus by the dozen police officers participating in the parody.
Posted on social networks, the video, which was only a joke between colleagues, quickly went viral. It now has 1.6 million views.
The humorous video won over Internet users, but also the police station, which was rather delighted to arouse laughter and smiles. The video also amused the Departmental Directorate of Public Security (DDSP) of Essonne: “It made me laugh a lot, I find it very funny. In this extremely tense context, I find that good. It’s a good spirit, we don’t make fun of anyone, there is absolutely no ethical problem… It’s a way of decompressing while remaining respectful,” says Jean-Marc Luca, director of the DDSP.
