Charlie Sheen's Rejected Fiat 500 Super Bowl Ad

Charlie Sheen's Rejected Fiat 500 Super Bowl Ad

Charlie Sheen's Rejected Fiat 500 Super Bowl Ad, Charlie Sheen mocks house arrest in ad, Charlie Sheen’s Fiat 500 ad: rolling with supermodels and winning, The actor drives a high-performance Fiat 500 in a mansion and jokes about "good behavior. After his character was unceremoniously killed off of Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen appears to have found a new gig: playing himself in car ads.

The follow-up to Fiat's sexy "Seduction" Super Bowl spot features the actor/warlock expertly (recklessly?) driving a Fiat 500 Abarth at full speed through a mansion full of beautiful people/goddesses. Fitting, as Sheen once claimed to have "only one speed, one gear." Halfway through the new 60-second spot, titled "House Arrest," the car screeches to a halt and Sheen's leg, equipped with an electronic ankle bracelet, is seen stepping out. "I love being under house arrest. What do I get for good behavior?" he says as he cozies up to Romanian supermodel Catrinel Menghia, the star of the previous ad.

On a side note, "Seduction" was never meant to be an ad at all; Fiat filmed it for the 500 Abarth's introduction at the 2011 LA Auto Show. Only after the reaction online -- the video has several million views -- did Fiat execs talk their legal team into approving it for broadcast. The Abarth, a higher-performance version of Fiat's subcompact, features a 160-hp four-cylinder engine, a 5-speed manual transmission, and a base price of $22,000. It makes its way to dealerships in April.
