Kardashians: Offensive Ford Ad Leaks On The Internet

A violently suggestive ad featuring likeness of the Kardashian sisters and Paris Hilton has made its way onto the internet. Does its tongue-in-cheek humor cross the line?

A young creative team at JWT India really messed up when they posted an unapproved ad for Ford depicting the Kardashians bound and gagged in the trunk of a car, with Paris Hilton in the driver’s seat!

Paris Hilton Binds The Kardashians In Ford Ad

The advertisement, posted to the website Ads of the World, also features the tagline, “Leave your worries behind.” Someone over there in India has got a wild imagination!

The Kardashian poster was uploaded along with another, even more inappropriate ad of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi driving a car with three crying women bound and gagged in the trunk.

The Silvio ad, which has been called “tasteless” and the “worst Ford ad ever,” darkly riffs off of his prior criminal charge of paying for sex and suggests that Silvio can handle his problems and “leave his worries behind” by killing prostitutes.

Offensive Kardashian Ad: Ford Apologizes

Ford and the ad agency are already rushing to fix the situation — the ad has since been removed from the website, and both companies have issued apologies.

WPP Group, which oversees JWT India stated, “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.”

Ford added in an email to Business Insider, “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. Together with our partners, we are reviewing approval and oversight processes to help ensure nothing like this ever happens again.”

The Paris Hilton-Kardashian ad does feel at least somewhat lighthearted, but the accompanying Silvio Berlusconi ad is much more twisted, and is most likely the majority of what Ford and WPP are apologizing for.

Either way, Ford is learning a hard lesson — once something’s on the internet, it’s there forever.

What do you think of the ad, HollywoodLifers? Over the line or funny?

I think this is a very intelligent ad people are always looking for plenty of room for baggage and the Kardashians have plenty of that so if they plus their baggage fit awesome. What Ms. Hilton has to do with it I don’t understand, maybe it is a really safe car? Oh no it must be fast and would help with her budding theft career. Lindsay Lohan would be the safety set advertisement poster child.

“The Paris Hilton-Kardashian ad does feel at least somewhat lighthearted,…”, I don’t see anything “lighthearted” about the binding and apparent kidnapping of any person. BTK found it funny, Ted Bundy found it funny, John Wayne Gacy found it funny…idiots.

I think it’s funny. Kim is almost naked as usual and Khloe looks like an old woman. LOL at Paris winking. This is nothing compared to them smelling the scent from each other’s
pussy and showing it on national TV. If anything should be banned it should have been that piece of garbage.

Seriously! These women are bound and gagged every night being the submissive women they are to their dominant black husbands! I think it’s spot on!

T he binding and gagging is of little concern cuz is a comic charectcher. I would not have recognized the characters. How many cartoons and movies are similar ? While I understand Fords position, I don’t think it is of any value negative or positive.

um, its India. What do you expect? Considering the source, its hardly ‘creative’. Such images are probably scrawled all over bathroom walls, over there.
or, have you not been watching the news regarding gang-rapes, over there.
here is a tagline that should’ve gone with the graphic:
india, go for the curry, stay for the gang-rape.

That’s so stupid…the ad was supposed to be a creative piece poking fun & highlighting utility of a compact car with a large boot/trunk…stop reading too much into it…moreover it is a caricature…& not all indians are rapists & not all rapists are indians…the ad was made by creative minds probably well educated & well versed with the requirement of the client (Ford)….your statement is close to racist

Why do you do such a bad job?

As much as I like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton, I don’t think the ad represents “violence.” It’s funny. If they had put someone else int he driver’s seat besides Paris Hilton, I might view it as threatening. But with Paris Hilton driving, and the Kardashians bound and gagged, I know some of their critics think they talk too much and are out there too much. In that context, the one the vast majority of audiences will see it in, it’s funny. Do I think the Kardashians talk too much? No. I enjoy their reality shows and their life is public consumption and entertaining.
