Special thanks to Joe Ottorino for sending this along. Great find for a long weekend laugh.
A report out of Sweden is suggesting that someone at Fiat has pulled a grand scale prank on their competition by planting a Fiat 500 in the front doorway of Volkswagen Sweden’s headquarters just as the Google Street View camera car came along.
It is very difficult to get any information out of Google, so one has to wonder if it would even be possible for Fiat to know ahead of time when the cameras would roll by the Swedish Beetle emporium.
Fiat’s PR team have said, “No comment,” so the whole story is up for speculation.
Whether it is some advanced guerilla marketing campaign, or a coincidence, I’ll bet the folks at Fiat are having a giggle while the VW team are likely verklempt.
