We write a lot about car logos. They're among the most recognisable designs in the world, and with pretty much every brand on the road redesigning its symbol in the last couple of years, there's been no shortage of stories to cover. But here's one we didn't see coming.

When one Twitter user shared a photo of the remarkable bruise they sustained in a minor car accident, users piled on with their own similar images. It seems a fair few road users have been unintentionally branded by their cars, in perhaps the most unfortunate example of accidental marketing we've ever seen. We're not sure even the best logos of all time would look good as, you know, injuries.
