Chrysler settles with graffiti artists over J.Lo's Fiat 500 ad [w/video]

Fiat has had nothing but trouble from its 500C commercial featuring Jennifer Lopez. After enduring a body double scandal and reports that the vehicle actually broke down during filming, Chrysler then found itself in the crosshairs of a lawsuit. The artists behind a copyrighted mural in the Bronx sued the automaker for using the image without their permission, but The New York Times now reports that the two parties have settled their differences out of court. Neither side is disclosing the details of the settlement at this time, but Fiat and artists TATS Cru have conveniently announced a new collaboration.

Fiat will provide the artists with a 500 to be painted and then auctioned off at a later date for charity, though no one is saying whether the group received any compensation for the use of its artwork in the Jennifer Lopez ad. Hit the jump to check out the ad in question for yourself.
