Jennifer Lopez's Fiat Commercial

A commercial hasn't annoyed me this much since every Old Navy commercial ever made.

It doesn't help that it's shown ten million times during NFL football games in an attempt to brainwash you into buying a Fiat.

You know because football fans are clearly the target audience for a Fiat.  They'll just get one instead of that pick up truck they wanted.

Even worse, the commercial expects you to believe several things that just aren't true.

First, that people would care that much to chase after Jennifer Lopez driving a car.

At most someone would mention in passing that Lopez was driving some weird European car and go back to that they were doing.

Second, we're still supposed to think Lopez is some huge sex symbol.

A 42-year-old woman trying to be sexy and dancing awkwardly in front of a car doesn't make me want to buy it.

I'd want nothing to do with that car.  Especially if that's the type of woman it's going to attract.

The commercial only has one use: as a means of psychological torture though.  Show that enough times to anybody and they'd definitely break.
