Who is Bibendum?
Bibendum (or 'Bib') is the mascot of the French brand Michelin. Bibendum, also known as ‘Michelin man’, first appeared in 1898 on an advertising poster, raising a glass full of nails and glass shards. The poster read (in French): "To your health, the Michelin tire drinks down the obstacle[s]!"
Since then, the Michelin man has been used in various advertising campaigns and has become hugely popular, especially in Europe. Among truckers, the Michelin man has become a real hit and turned into a collectible item. You'll find him on many trucks and in many cabins.
The Michelin figure: then and now
Over the years, the Michelin man has changed quite a bit. On the first poster, he was a true Michelin man: a rather hefty older guy. He even wore glasses! But on his hundredth birthday (1998), Bib decided he needed to slim down. Since then, you'll see him as a slimmer figure with a younger look. His new image was well received, as in 2000, the Michelin figure was chosen as the best logo of the twentieth century.
