A parallel Worlds

Sunday November 15 2009 / Science & Technology - Art & Design - A Little Levity

On the occassion of the 50th annivesary of Asterix, which was created in October 1959 -  written by René Goscinny and illustrated by  Albert Uderzo - one of the world's premier precision air- acrobatic teams, the Patrouille de France, paid homage to Gaul's most famous sun by making a short film.

Asterix

Asterix's adventures have had him touring France, visiting Britain, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Egypt, the Near East (looking for oil), Greece, Corsica, Rome, America (unwittingly) and even India, so it is only fitting that he finally gets himself some fast transport.


While the video is in French, we hope you will agree with is in that the visuals speak all languages.

The Patrouille de France  is only a few years older that Asterix, having celebrated their own 50th annivesary in 2003.
