In a bit of news that qualifies as both extremely offensive to some, and highly amusing to others, an ad company in India came up with a few crazy, tasteless print ads for the Ford Figo, a compact car popular in that country.
Red-faced Ford executives apologized for the ads after they went viral saying they were mock-ups that were not meant for publication.
You can read the whole story in The Daily Mail, but personally, I think the pictures speak for themselves.
Known for its spacious storage, the Figo’s tagline is, ‘Leave your worries behind with Figo’s extra-large boot.’
In the first drawing, celebutante Paris Hilton winks as she glances at her reality TV rivals, Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, tied up and bound while they squeeze into the back of the car.
Then in a second drawing, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi gives a mischievous glance and flashes the peace sign while three scantily clad ladies, presumably prostitutes, are similarly bound and tied in the back of his trunk.
A third version of the tasteless creative shows Formula One driver Michael Schumacher behind the wheel of the car while his race car rivals, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso suffer in the back.
