    So some "clever" folks from Ogilvy & Mather's London office created an ad for Ford's Sportka, a little car that is supposed to compete with Ka. The Sportka is billed as "The Ka's Evil Twin."

    Well, the client rejected the ad.
    After watching it, you'll understand why.
    My only question is: what which stupid fuck came up with this idea and actually wasted money producing it? Did they actually think it would get aired?

    It has created a huge buzz on the internet, however.

    I've been wondering for the past couple of hours if this was never meant to be aired on TV but to be distributed on the web.

    No TV station would ever air it I don't think, but think of all the publicity the car could get on the web.

    Apparently this video has been getting an EXTREMELY large amount of hits.
