BMW-Like Used Aston Martin Ad is Not Real [NSFW]


A few years back, a provocative BMW ad for its premium selection used cars (CPO) showing a beautiful young woman lying on a bed accompanied by the tag line "You know you're not the first" in one version, and "You know you're not the first. But do you really care?" in the other, made a splash online, though, it also triggered critical reactions from feminists.

Now, a very similar ad for Aston Martin's used cars bearing the same exact tagline is making the rounds on Twitter feeds and Facebook, but we believe it's fake, for two basic reasons.

The first is that we discovered that the photo of the sensual young lady lifting her right leg over the kitchen counter is from a photoshoot for the German edition of Playboy from January 2012 (see Rosanne Jongenelen's FB NSFW photo here), while the second clue comes from the misspelling of "Pre Owed" under the Aston Martin logo.

Update: Aston Martin's law firm sent us a letter demanding the removal of the fake ad - read more details about that here.

Makes you wonder why someone did it? To make us AM owners look like sexist objectifying pricks? What the hell was the point?
