UHHH, now that’s not a sight you see every day!!
The ad (above), produced by JWT India for Ford Figo, finds Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian bound and gagged in the trunk of a car.
But there’s more. Paris Hilton is the one in charge! You can check her out in the driver’s seat.
Due to the ad's sensitive and offensive nature, it has since been pulled from digital publication.
The ad was Ford’s failed attempt to promote their latest Figo campaign and to stay culturally relevant by poking fun at these reality stars’ competition.
The tag line?
“Leave your worries behind with Figo’s extra large boot.”
Ford has since released an apology, stating:
“The posters are contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within Ford and our agency partners.”
Meanwhile, WPP Group — the firm that own JWT India — said they found the ad to be “distasteful.” They then added:
“This was the result of individuals acting without proper oversight…”
We wonder what the Kardashians think of this! Kris Jenner must be giving someone an earful right about now! HA!
UPDATE: Ford reached out to us and would like it clarified that the ad was never officially theirs, as many may assume. As we've previously stated, the ad in question was never actually used — but it has been associated with Ford as it was seemingly made in hopes to be purchased from the car company. Ford has made it clear that they would NEVER agree to such an ad.
