Reblogged this on My Encore Life In Focus and commented:
This is the most perfect advertisement I have ever seen! It makes me want to run out and buy a Fiat 500, or as we call it in Italian: Cinque Cento. I WANT ONE!!!
I’m off to buy a new Fiat 500. Anything to help me learn Italian fluently!!!
It’s a spoof from Will Farrell’s Funny or Die website. The acting is spot-on, as are the stereotypes. Whoever wrote this must have ties to both US and Italy. This is stuff I’ve lived through time and again, one of the many reasons why I love it here. Drama is always prevalent. In Rome I finally found my place in the world.
Recent ads from Fiat are nearly on par with the old VW ads from the 60s! They are so funny it almost wants to make you go out and buy a car.
I agree the copywriter and/or director had to have spent time here or have family here. They nailed it. Hilarious.
Love the Americans’ “transformation” at the end.
