Latin: Nunc est bibendum!!..
Now is the time to drink!!..
The first depiction of the Michelin Man making a toast. He is also known as Bibendum, possibly because of this poster. The phrase Nunc est Bibendum! is taken from the Odes of Horace.
Date 1898

Text top: Nunc est bibendum!!.. [Now is the time to drink!!..]
Text: c'est à dire: // "à Votre Santé // le pneu Michelin // boit l'obstacle!." [that's to say: // "To your health // the Michelin tire // drinks up all obstacles!."]
