It would appear France has banned a Van Moof bike add for being anti car industry...

As yet noone is able to tell me what the French is for Streisand effect...

Beer, bikes, and backpacking

Maybe not banned but "fake news" in order to go viral on social media for lots of free advertising?

Not fake news, a French law that adverts must not use fear and distress.
“Some images in the reflection of the car are, in our opinion, unbalanced and discredit the entire car sector,” the ARPP said in a letter sent to VanMoof. “The images of factories/chimneys and an accident create a climate of fear. So they will have to be adapted.”
