In 2021, thank you for continuing to support your local traders. Just know that Chuck Norris is with you, and don’t forget that “Tidy” approves this approach. “

In the specific case of Bastia, the personality of Chuck Norris, both determined and sympathetic, proved to be perfect in the eyes of Daniel Benedittini who declared to our colleagues from France 3: “ We went through the list of personalities looking for the one that could please Bastia. And Chuck Norris won. It was the funniest choice, everyone knows it …“
