Audi Pulls Latest RS 4 Ad After Backlash

Did you catch the commercial showing a little girl eating a banana in front of an RS 4? It drew a lot of criticism on social media and has since been pulled, but you can see the original photo below here. What are your thoughts?

Quote:
The full ad for the Audi RS 4 on the firm's website shows it being marketed as a family car - and that was apparently the context for the controversial Twitter ad featuring the little girl eating a banana.

Jane Bradford tweeted under the Audi apology: "So, let your heart beat faster in every aspect? Picture of - child with banana in mouth and flash car- so wrong in EVERY aspect".

Shiri@home tweeted: "Little girl with phallic symbol in her hand. Clear, super..."

And DjBeeTee tweeted: "Let's add it up: Red=eroticism, sports car=substitute for potency, animal print mini-skirt=sex appeal, banana=phallic symbol. But sure this is all just accidental..."

However, Mark Kreuzer, an engineer and blogger, tweeted: "Hmm, well for me the message is: Audi RS4 = family car. Just as your own daughter makes your heart beat faster, so does the RS4. And both are of course cool."
