    As so many struggle with the ins and outs of advertising cars on Facebook, one piece of sublime inspiration from Sweden might show there are other media with more promise.
    An employee of Fiat near Stockholm, Sweden noticed that Google's fine Street View drivers were making a sweep of the area.
    As the Daily Mail reports it, he drove a Fiat 500 and parked it in front of Volkswagen's HQ in Sodertalje, around 30 miles south of Stockholm. He thought it might make for a fun picture when the Street View car came around. He was right.
    Sure enough, if you go to Google Maps and search on "Volkswagen Group Sverige AB, Sodertalje, Sweden," you see a beautiful, gleaming red Fiat 500 parked right in front of VW's front door.
    I wonder if, at some point, the folks at VW might ask for the Fiat to be blurred out.
    For the moment, though, it's still up there, in all its glory.
