Fiat is really trying to push its five-door 500L, which has gotten off to a rather disappointing first year of sales. The Italian brand's first big-name effort involved rapper P. Diddy and a pair of very unfortunate desert pedestrians. Now, it's gone even bigger (quite literally), teaming up with everyone's favorite, city destroying, radiation-breathing green lizard monster – Godzilla.

Yes, the Japanese monster icon is getting rebooted in a new film starring Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, as well as Ken Watanabe and Elizabeth Olsen. With the iconic kaiju hitting US theaters on May 16, the release of the Fiat/Godzilla ad is well timed.

In the ad, Godzilla is doing what he does best, all while devouring standard-sized 500s in the same way that you or I might eat a few grapes. This is working out quite nicely, until the big lizard bites off more than he can chew with the 500L.

      That commercial alone was 1000x better than the Roland Emmerich Godzilla movie.

      Another useless FIAT commercial that really says nothing about the car well except it is so terrible that not even Godzilla wants to eat it.

      Perhaps the 500L would sell better if it wasn't so damn ugly

        Hit every branch of the ugly tree as it fell to the ground.

      Oh boo. You know what would be a better example of Godzilla eating Italian? A GTR smoking a Ferrari. Now make it happen guys.

        An Ariel Atom V8 and any number of small-block kit cars would smoke a GT-R, what's your point?

      I test drove the L. Drives small, has decent get up and go (It's not a sports car, mind you), has GREAT visibility, and is quite spacious inside. It's a good car.

        Agreed, but it just looks awkward in certain trims. They should only sell the Trekking version or equip every model w 18" wheels, which would help a lot. Adding AWD would also increase sales a lot, especially in the Northeast.

      The 500L is selling worse than the ancient Scion xB. That tells you how bad it's doing.
