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
