Fiat "Neighbors" Web Series
Fiat in partnership with the comedy video website Funny Or Die has launched a web series titled “Neighbors." The web series features five webisodes showcasing the 2014 Fiat 500L as it follows the adventures (or misadventures) of a suburban American couple as they interact with their new Italian neighbors. “Neighbors,” debuted in June on Funny Or Die and was promoted on the TBS cable channel. Fiat’s “Neighbors” will premiere its final two episodes this week on Funny Or Die, which can be viewed at funnyordie.com
The Fiat web series "Neighbors" is the follow up to the popular "Backseat Italians" that aired earlier on the Funny Or Die website.
According to Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer - Chrysler Group LLC and Fiat Group Automobiles Head of Fiat Brand:
"The FIAT brand’s playful personality and Italian heritage give us license to find new ways to tell our brand story. Partnering with Funny Or Die, which has a huge built-in fan base and social media following, has proven to be a winning formula for us. The reaction to our ‘Backseat Italians’ video proved the power of great content and a passionate fan base that Funny Or Die brings to the partnership. Since the launch of this latest series of videos, we've seen an uptick in web traffic, and this deeper engagement with our brand ultimately leads to FIAT Studio visits.”
The web series begins with “The New Neighbors Are So … Italian,” when a middle-age suburban couple gears up to meet the hot, young and stylish Italians moving in to the house next door. The series follows the two couples through a series of four additional episodes: “Espress Lane to Trouble” proves that overdosing on espresso is no way to impress the cool, new Italian neighbor; “Spanking” demonstrates that the threat of being punished by a beautiful woman somehow does nothing to stop the neighborhood boys’ bad behavior; “Gluten Free” brings the American couple over for dinner at the Italian neighbor's home; and finally, “When in Rome” leaves everyone lost in translation when a figure of speech leads to a big misunderstanding.
Viewers of “Neighbors” can follow along on Twitter by using the hashtag #italianneighbors. The posted webisodes currently hold “Funny” rankings by Funny Or Die viewers.
In celebration of world soccer fever with cultures coming together all over the world, FIAT is sponsoring “Funny Or Die Soccer Week,” a special weeklong programming event featuring soccer-themed videos and articles, which can be viewed at funnyordie.com/soccer.
