In November 1926, in Bolton, Lancashire (England), Henry Thomas, son of a policeman, ran away from home, in the evening, to meet with his friends. They decided to play hide and seek. Henry went into an alley and saw an open door. Believing that one of his friends would be inside the courtyard, he decided to enter. The young man was surprised to see three "people" in the back, watching through a window. They wore strange clothes, like rubber, and shiny silver. The boots were dark. On the head they had a transparent helmet; several tubes were joined to some tanks, on their backs. The three humanoids were of normal stature. They looked like the "Michelin Man", but more slender. The humanoids seemed to detect the child and turned to him. Their heads were pale and resembled a light bulb, with dark eyes, a nose and barely defined mouth. The most curious thing that Henry would say later about his mysterious encounter was that it seemed as if the humanoids were three wise men, despite their terrifying appearance. One of the humanoids emitted a gurgling noise, and all three took notice of the child. The young Thomas fled, racing for home, where he told his parents what happened. This case represents one of the most puzzling encounters where the described humanoids were similar to the popular Bibendum.
In May or June 1960, in Jerez, Cadiz (Spain), the teacher Miguel Ceballos Timermans riding his motorcycle between the towns of King's Meadow and Arcos de la Frontera, while climbing a hill, found a giant humanoid on a side of the road. It was about 150 meters away, and seemed to be inflated. The witness stopped his motorcycle. The strange passerby was wearing a red suit, from head to toe, and walked toward the witness. It looked like the "Michelin Man.” It walked slowly like a robot with rigid and articulated movements. It was, at least, two meters high. Mr. Timermans did not see the face of the humanoid. The witness observed that another being came from behindthe first one, with the same features, but much smaller, 1 meter high. Also it differed in that one of his legs had a dark side, in contrast to whole body being lit. Mr. Timermans said that it might have been a boot. The two humanoids crossed the road diagonally, and quickly disappeared from view. Curiously Miguel went to the spot but he could not see anything. The things had simply disappeared.
On December 6, 1967, in Haute-Vienne (France), around 6:00 pm, the Pealons, from inside their observed a small humanoid floating about 1.10 meters in the air near the embankment of the road. He had a suit like the Michelin Man, and the head was like a balloon. Before disappearing the humanoid raised his arm twice. A similar case occurred in Saint Nizier in Moucherotte (France) in the summer of 1974. Overnight, J. F. C. Granier and his brother H., were inside their vehicle when they observed a humanoid about 1.60 meters tall, motionless beside the road. His face was completely smooth like a dolls and it was dressed like the Michelin Man. Its arms were very long. The mysterious "being" turned around and disappeared into the undergrowth. Hours later, another witness saw a similar humanoid that disappeared with a big leap. It should be noted that one of the favorite positions of Bibendum, in ads, is “hello” with its arm raised.

so what could this mean? according to spanish investigator jose caravaca, it is proof of of his distortion theory wich states that an external agent tampers with the witness memories and build an weird event out of the witness memories this could explain why those sightings happen mostly on countries where michelin is popular
what are you thoughts?
