Les Gaulois

This locksmith work truck is so, well, so cute. If a little Celtic Gaul with a winged helmet and celtic knot key really comes to your house if you're locked out, then I want to lock myself out today.  

It's not unusual to see the image of the fierce Gauls, ancestors of today's French people, with their long blond hair, handlebar moustaches and helmets fighting against the invading Romans, or unlocking doors.

He is a funny character.

The Gaul is a part of the French soul. His image is a sort of melange of the very popular cartoon Asterix and Obelix and the real Gaul Vercingetorix - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vercingetorix

If I had to try to pronounce Vercingetorix I would be in trouble.
