Michelin Man takes a break for a rubdown

The 2012 North American International Auto Show opened to the media today. Journalists are scurrying about the Cobo Center in Detroit working to cover the flashy unveilings of new model cars.

It can be tough. Especially if you’re the Michelin Man. I caught the big fella getting a rubdown. The massage therapist said his upper traps were really tight.

It looks like whoever is in that suit might be really hot, but there's a bit of technology to the rescue here. The suit had a little battery powered fan on the side to keep the occupant cool.
