Because No One’s EVER Compared Cars To Sex Before

From the AP:

Japanese carmaker Nissan said Friday it has pulled a raunchy commercial starring “Sex and the City” actress Kim Cattrall from New Zealand television after complaints over its content.
Cattrall, who plays sex-obsessed, promiscuous Samantha Jones in the hugely successful U.S. series, appears in the ad purring with excitement about Nissan’s new sedan.
“Why didn’t you tell me it was so big, I just wasn’t prepared for it?” she gushes. “The all-new Nissan Tiida makes you feel really, really, really good inside.”
She tells a salesman: “Ah! That was amazing. Absolutely fabulous! I mean the great body and the way you moved it.”

I can’t wait until she starts appearing in commercials for Hummers.

    The campaign in question emanates from Australia. To say it is a dud is an understatement. According to our local papers the client is pulling campaign not due to sex but due to lack of success in the marketplace.
