Mini Tells Drivers: WTF! It’s the Second Year of Wave to Friends Day

Mini's WTF Day has us asking WTF?

  • Mini would like to remind you how quirky it is

  • Wave to Friends Day is also the company’s anniversary

Mini USA would like to remind you to WTF today as it celebrates the company’s 63rd birthday. WTF do they mean WTF? It’s not what you think. It’s an odd attempt to steal one of the best features of Mazda’s Miata and the Jeep Wrangler, not a puzzled and expressive question.

Wave to Friends day, Mini calls it. This is the second anniversary of the day that Mini USA wants you to wave to your friends. Both your fellow Mini drivers and to everyone else you might know on the road.

There’s even a “convenient” guide to the different types of wave. From the intermittent wave to the peace sign, with stops on Vulcan along the way.

If you’re not sure which wave is yours, Mini has a questionnaire that suggests which one is the ideal. Ours was “the Spirit Wave” which appears to be a normal wave but while wearing a Michael Jackson-style glove. Interesting.

The day corresponds with the 63rd anniversary of the reveal of the original Mini, way back in 1969. The company reminds us how revolutionary that car was in terms of its use of space and style, which the company attempts to replicate in its current models.

So if you spot a Mini on the road today, don’t forget: WTF! We know we’ll be saying TGIF while we WTF all day long.
