We've all been there, you've been looking for a particular webpage for hours and think you've finally found it. You click the link and disaster strikes: ERROR 404: Page Not Found. You vow to never touch the internet ever again. 

It's the page you never want to see while browsing, but Redditors don't seem to mind. A screenshot of Peugeot's light-hearted error 404 message has surfaced on Reddit and it's proving popular. When the Peugeot site crashes, you are greeted by a pun that only a few beady eyed fans would notice. That's right folks, when the webpage can't be found, Peugeot display a photo of its 404 car model. It isn't uncommon for brands to get creative with their error pages, here you can find more brilliant examples of fun error 404 pages

One user commented on the post (opens in new tab) that this little touch was a 'design gem' and a 'heart-warming attention to detail.' Many others were quick to compliment Peugeot for featuring one of their most famous models in this way and were praised for doing the old vehicle 'justice'.
