    The human canvas

    I absolutely LOVE the 2011 Fiat Abarth TV commercial where the Italian-speaking lady with the scorpion tattoo seduces the passer by before revealing she is really a Fiat Abarth car! The same advertising group was responsible for this photo shoot for a print campaign for the Fiat Abarth. There is NO PHOTOSHOP involved, so be prepared to be amazed!

    Fascinating Waz. Though the keeper of the remote either mutes the ads or jumps channels so I have never seen it

    Three thoughts:
    1. Hah! Painted ladies... (won't go there)
    2. They should sell the idea to VW: the "People Car".
    3. A new take on "bumper" bar. (You shift the the quotes.)

    What else do I have to do with my retirement?

    Update:

    The girl in the Fiat Abarth commercial is Catrinel Menghia, a Romanian-born supermodel (I'll say!). I've been so curious as to what she's actually saying, and I really glad I persisted through a Google search. Here is a transcript for your information.

    He stops admiringly, but is caught looking. Sheepishly, he looks away, and she says,
    "What are you looking at?" she grunts in exasperation and storms up to the sidewalk, as though tired of the constant unwanted attention she has received, and this little boy is the last straw.
    "What are you looking at!" she says again, and her hand connects to his cheek in a sharp slap. "Are you undressing me with your eyes?" she demands.
    Then, coyly, the mood shifts.
    "Poor guy...you can't help it." She pulls his tie and draws the obviously confused and now shocked onlooker closer.
    "Is your heart beating?" she asks, "Is your head spinning?" She whispers. He nods, under her seductive spell. "Do you feel lost thinking that I could be yours forever?"
    A dollop of foam lands playfully on her chest, and he leans in for a kiss, then realizes that he's staring into the passenger window of the new 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth.
    Let's just say it's lost NOTHING in the translation! Now ... back to photography!
