A Canadian used car dealer named Dale Wurfel is flirting with a lawsuit by using Tom Ford’s face in his latest ad. The ad (above, but you probably figured that out) features Ford emblazoned with the leading question, “You know you’re not the first. But do you really care?” Which I guess means Tom Ford isn’t about to lose his virginity to you when you buy a used Jeep. Also, it doesn’t seem like much of a leap to assume Ford didn’t give permission for this.
…The ad is ridiculous for a couple of reasons. First of all, Tom Ford has been with his partner for, like, 25 years. So, there’s that.
Second, it’s a ripoff of this ad for used BMWs that’s already been offending people for years with the exact same line.
So. It’s inaccurate and unoriginal. I’ll just file this under “stupid” then.
