This very funny ad photo was created to advertise Ford’s new vehicle, and it features the Kardashian sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe bound, gagged and stuffed into a car boot, while Paris Hilton relaxes at the passenger seat with a wide grin on her face.
The ad came with the following equally funny caption: ‘Leave your worries behind with Figo’s extra large boot.’
Happily for the Kardashians, the ad photo never saw the light of the day, as it was pulled by Ford and an apology statement issued. ‘We deeply regret this incident and agree with our agency partners that it should have never happened. The posters are contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within Ford and our agency partners,’ Ford’s rep said.
WPP Group, parent group of JWT India, the ad company who produced the picture, has also apologized. ‘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,’ they said, adding, ‘This was the result of individuals acting without proper oversight.’
The Kardashian spoof photo was not the only one pulled: Another photo of disgraced former Italian Prime minister Silvio Berlusconi driving a car whose trunk was filled with three half-naked females bound and gagged was also taken down.
Well, at least everyone had a good laugh.
