Fiat Strada - Handbuilt by robots - (1979) 0:60 (UK) Classic

One of my absolute fave adverts. Ever.

Ironically when Hugh Hudson arrived on set in Turin he had to navigate past picketers outside who were protesting against the robots taking their jobs.

I agree, this is one helluva advert... ;)

And somehow it's that good since it's done with no freakin FX and tons of animation. The real stuff.

The music is actually from Rossini's "Barber of Seville." It's the aria "Largo al factotum"
