Ford is apologizing for a leaked ad they ran featuring a cartoon charter drawing of Paris Hilton and the Kardashian sisters tied up and gagged in the trunk of a car.
The ad was created by the automaker’s India-based advertisement team, JWT India, in the ad the tagline reads: “Leave your worries behind with Figo's extra large boot.”
Ford's formal apology read:
"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.
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."
The ads were pulled soon after they were leaked.
