Driving Across The Ocean

I just saw a Fiat commercial in which a car in Italy (home of the Fiat) drives off a cliff into (presumably) the Mediterranean Ocean. The next scene shows the car driving onto the beach in California. Written at the bottom of the screen at the end of the commercial is "Dramatization. Do not try this."

Really? You mean you can't really drive a Fiat across the bottom of the ocean?

Gee, thanks for the tip! That's a handy piece of information to know.

Just how stupid do you think I am?

Wait... don't answer that.


  1. You only have to find out the hard way once. Like when my kids were little and I tried to fold up the stroller--good thing I read the tag that said, "Remove child first."

    1. LOL!

      Yeah, when we bought a playpen for our first child, we couldn't figure out why it didn't have a door. We did finally figure out that we had the thing upside down, but we always knew where she was.

  2. You'd have probably like the commercial better if the car drove up from the Gulf of Mexico.

  3. Hey, criticizing commercials is my territory - back off... ;)
