I’m sure by now you’ve all seen the god-awful Jennifer Lopez advertisement for the Fiat 500.
Well, in case you haven’t – here it is – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deNRiBQiQ3Q
Of course, this was ill advised by the Chrysler Fiat Group, who tried selling another piece of crap by using a celebrity – Celine Dion for the Chrysler Crossfire – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdxN6gJFhYs
And you surely know that the Jennifer Lopze advertisement for the Fiat 500 was completely faked – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/22/jennifer-lopez-fiat-commercial-sham-fake-bronx-filmed-in-los-angeles_n_1108182.html
She used a body double to film scenes in The Bronx while claiming that to be “her world” – when she shot her scenes in Los Angeles. Sure is Jenny from the Block, huh?
While Lopez, Fiat, the automotive firm’s PR people, and its Detroit ad agency would have consumers believe that the star deigned to return home to filma low-speed pilgrimage through the gritty streets of her hometown, she actually never set foot in the Bronx during the filming of the Fiat spots.
Instead, the role of “Jenny from the Block” was played by a body double, according to two sources familiar with the commercial production. While the Lopez lookalike was actually behind the wheel in the Bronx, Lopez herself was in Los Angeles, where she was filmed inside a Fiat 500.
The shots of the actress were artfully merged to make it appear that she was tooling around New York City’s poorest borough. Big Block, a Los Angeles digital production studio, was hired to merge live action footage with computer-generated imagery to make it appear as if Lopez was in the Bronx.
Well, now she’s getting flack for supporting terrorists – http://www.wwtdd.com/2012/01/is-jennifer-lopez-a-terrorist-probably-yes/
In an open letter to Lopez released on Thursday, the president for United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) wrote: “By endorsing Fiat, you are serving as a spokesperson for a company that freely does business with Iran, a regime that is developing an illegal nuclear weapons program, financing and sponsoring terrorist groups including al-Qaeda, has killed American and NATO soldiers and is recognized as one of the world’s leading human rights violators.”
“(Fiat also) produces vehicles that are reportedly used by the Iranian regime as platforms to stage gruesome public executions.”
Chrysler – if you want to sell me a car, just show me a Dodge Viper doing sweet heaters.
Sweet, sweet heaters.
