Ford Ad Pulled — Is the Paris Hilton/Kardashian Cartoon Offensive?
Some approval processes go awry, and Ford learned that the hard way when their outside Ad agency published their unapproved work-product on the internet, which has subsequently created online outrage and lead to a profuse apology on behalf of the car company. So now that I’ve got that summary out of the way — allow me to have a laugh at what can only be called brilliant. Humor isn’t always appropriate, but it can be on-trend. And since everyone assumes Paris Hilton hates Kim Kardashian for basically hijacking her entire brand, it’s only fitting that she’d fantasize about taking them out for a joy-ride in her trunk. Seriously though — violence is never funny. Never.
