Interesting to see the Italian re-editing. Anything with Jlo has 2 strikes against it, in my book, but does it reduce the cringe factor for you? Especially the shorter version.

Plus see what the UK guys did with cropping parts of the Get Ready ad into a shorter more focused version. Does this make you say hmmm... about the US marketing effort ... at least the work before the new Abarth ad came out.

This will piss of member Fiat5. Oh wait, he traded his for a testosterone filled ...BMW 1 series. Sorry, I know it was his decision, but to let Jlo get to you, to the point of selling your car for another chick car, makes me shake my head.

Did you notice that our 'Sport' button was labeled 'Eco' in the commercials? Makes you wonder if the European models default to 'Sport' mode and to get the Eco friendlyl mode you have to press the 'Eco' button...or 180 degrees from ours.

so apparently its not the commercial, it's HER. what is it that people hate about J-Lo? :confused: I don't get it.

FIAT5 sold their 500 because of a commercial? you're kidding, right? pretty weak minded, if you ask me. if BMW has a commercial they hate, will they trade the BMW for something else less offensive, like a smart car?:p

I've had my 500 since July and NOT ONCE has anyone approached me and said "why are you driving a J-Lo car?" in fact, no one has EVER mentioned the J-Lo commerciasl to me....NO ONE. the only place I ever hear about it is on FIAT forums and in stories written by narrow-minded, usually uninformed, "car guys".

ITS A COMMERCIAL. get over it. :rolleyes:

I mentioned this a few months ago but no one really made much mention of it, it made me think that we should easily be able to get ours switched, surely someone can come up with a re-program that changes things.

Ask him, he posted his new winter tires on here yesterday or the day before. Good deal for someone, but it's a chick car for a chick car trade. I've never seen one male in my area drive a 1 Series. This one girl made a comment on my car saying it's a toy, I responded that she couldn't afford the real BMW's.

A good friend of mine has a 1 series and he's a dude. He loves it so much he won't let his boyfriend drive it.

As I recall, everyone Fiat5 knew, and everyone who saw him drive his Fiat around, complete strangers on the street, would point and laugh at him, vocalizing their distaste of his car due to the J-Lo commercials.

Yeah... it must have been the car...

Before going to the dealership to buy mine I sat with my wife and watched Youtube vids of the 500. I saw the JLo vids pop up, but no big deal. Every company experiences bad marketing campaigns. Core values such as high product quality and integration with the end user's lifestyle should be top considerations. I'm proud to have Silver Ghost in my driveway. Seeing that Fiat emblem on the steering wheel brings back very fond memories when I behind the wheel of my 124s.

The 1 series should have a rainbow coalition emblem on it

I have to say, yours and F500s obsession of me selling my FIAT is hilarious and quite entertaining :D rest assured I check back here every so often to read all the fun comments you "guys" are leaving.

True story...after I traded in the FIAT and paperwork was all signed, the FIAT was sitting out front. when I handed over the keys two BMW sales guys were outside and asked jokingly "does that car come with JLo in the back seat?"...thats the last time I'll hear that ever again :/

The real truth I traded the FIAT is not because JLo turned this awesome designed, ultra cool Italian inspired little marvel of a car into a women's handbag on wheels. The real real reason is because I wanted a car with a clock that kept real time ;)
