Can Three Child Seats Fit in a Fiat?

There's a new parent-rapping video making the rounds on YouTube  this one designed to promote the Fiat 500L.

The rapping mom here is a British lady with three kids, and she's unafraid to make "bitches" and "hose" puns. The video itself is called "The Motherhood" (get it?).

The car isn't available in the U.S. yet, so perhaps the clip is only intended for U.K. audiences. Still, I wonder how she carts her three kids around in it. The 500L is bigger than the Mini Cooper-sized Fiat 500, but squeezing three child seats in the back would seem to be a challenge. You never see the kids strapped into the car, so it's hard to tell from the video.

The last high-profile example of parents rapping in a car commercial was 2010's "Swagger Wagon," a clip that advertised the roomier Sienna Minivan SE (and that family only had two kids!).

All in all, I still prefer last year's "The Parent Rap."
