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?

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."
