In case you needed a good laugh and wanted to “leave all your worries behind”, here’s an unauthorized ad from Ford! The ad features caricatures of Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian bound and gagged in the back of a Ford — with Paris Hilton in the driver’s seat! You really can’t get any better than that!
The creative team at JWT India released the ad on “Ads Of The World”, but apparently it has Ford’s feathers all ruffled.
The company that oversees JWT India, WPP Group, released a statement regarding the situation. They said, “We deeply regret the publishing of posters that were distasteful and contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within WPP Group. These were never intended for paid publication and should never have been created, let alone uploaded to the internet. This was the result of individuals acting without proper oversight and appropriate actions have been taken within the agency where they work to deal with the situation.”
In an email to “Business Insider”, Ford said, “We deeply regret this incident and agree with our agency partners that it should never have happened. The posters are contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within Ford and our agency partners. Together with our partners, we are reviewing approval and oversight processes to help ensure nothing like this ever happens again.”
Somebody doesn’t have a sense of humor!
