Our Honda, in the Middle of the Street

This is hilarious: the 80s British ska group Madness (of “Our House” fame) did a series of Japanese commercial for the Honda City and Honda City Turbo. Note the appearance of the Motocompo folding scooter, which came with the car. Honda needs to revive this concept. A Ruckus in the back of the Element, perhaps?

    They actually had a Bulldog (nickname for the Honda City Turbo II) prototype in 2001 including two motocompo mopeds (called e-DAX) installed in the back of the car:
