Another ad we wouldn’t normally see

Another amusing ad that won’t air in the UK – I don’t know about the US, I get a feeling it’s from South Africa – especially as we don’t get the car here…

I’ve never heard of the original, let alone the new Ford Ikon but at just 4 seconds it becomes clear that whoever is doing Ford’s ad campaign on this one knows how to get attention: girls, bikinis, sun… shark!!! 

It’s a strange thing that, while this ad isn’t overly controversial, sexist or even rude, I doubt it would play over here, it’s like we’re becoming too PC. Although this ad does seem to say more about the intelligence and cunning of a shark more than it does that of the new Ford. What do you think of this ad?
