Default Owner frustrated with problematic Jeep Grand Cherokee - Creates music video!

Frustrating for the owner, but a hilarious way to give vent to it! Wonder how many 'albums' we can produce, if we were to employ similar means here in India!

Mod Note: Moving out to a new thread. Thanks for sharing.

Got to love this guy! Superb video with a catchy tune. Very creative, very nicely made .

Jeep must be regretting not resolving the matter - that video has over 10 lakh views in just 3 days. Not the kind of customer you want to mess with.

Wow !

That's a brilliant video, and is sure to get the attention it deserves. Brilliant !

It'll be fun to see some Punjabi videos here in India for similar cases

Yes, catchy tune that. And such a way to highlight the Lime-n-Lemony Cherokee !

Any bets that this track gets to the Top 10 ? Would be fun :-)

This song is produced by Mofalactic, one of the best from Australia.

That's the best 4'19" I've spent on YouTube! And the best part is, its 'To Be Continued' !

Someone please update the thread if they come across any reaction from Jeep.

This is gonna hit Fiat Chrysler Australia big time. If I were Fiat, I would just hand out a cheque worth double the Cherokee price and resolve. But if I were this guy, I would refuse the cheque and make them repent for life, so that it's a deterrent for others. Now waiting for how this would end! This guy is awesome, to make such a rebuttal is not an easy job by any means

I think if FCA compensates him handsomely, then for zero cost they can earn accolades in challenging times. Time to look at it as an opportunity rather than a problem. This guy is famous already, and anything related to him will become automatically famous.

Hilarious video

Nice way to grab the manufacturers attention towards such an issue. YouTube is a really big platform and such videos go viral in no time. Just a bit of marketing and sharing and you are set. This will hit FCA real bad. They should have sorted out the matter earlier.

Now wait a minute, is this the same Jeep that Chrysler is planning to sell in India? If so, they better put it on halt.

What an amazing video, the rate at which the view count is increasing this may top the world Billboards in a few days.

Chrysler, just give that guy a Dodge Viper to take down this video.

This guy is actually bringing the quote "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" to life. I wonder what the 'to be continued' at the end of the video was for ? Perhaps he is still waiting for Jeep to make good or perhaps he would send the car to the guy holding the 'lemon crusher' sledge hammer

The guy lives in the same neighbourhood as my friend in Melbourne suburbs. The friend co-incidently also has a Jeep Grand Cherokee :P Apparently the guy sent 8k's making this video.

For those who like the beats, the original song which is parodied in the video is new thang by redfoo.

As much as I like the Video, I wonder whether he will be in a Legal Soup or other forms of bullying ?
