Description: 
Paul McCarthy during the shooting of his video Pinocchio Pipenose Householddilemma at Villa Arson in Nice discovers the Twingo. Because of the themes tackled with by his work, he got really taken for this small car with a childish aspect, and decided to use it in a spontaneous action, dressed up as Pinocchio, in a gas station not far from there.

He inspects the motor, the exhaust tube and the gas tank with his turgescent nose, makes himself a penis by sticking the pump between his legs.
