Is Kate Upton’s New Mercedes Ad Too Tacky-Sexy?

A new Mercedes-Benz ad starring the voluptuous Kate Upton is generating some surprisingly negative buzz in the blogosphere, with critics calling it cheap and tasteless—even wondering if it’s too sexy.

“Hot girl, great car, and somehow I think this is the worst ad Mercedes has ever made,” and “Cheap and stupid. Worst ad Mercedes made. Whoever thought of this needs to be fired!” are among a slew of choice comments posted on the Mercedes-Benz Facebook page.

    Reminded me of the Carl’s Jr ad Paris Hilton did a few years ago. Both are tacky.

    I don’t see what all the fuss about her is. Give her a few years and she’ll look like the hip-woman thing from a couple of posts down.

    The spot didn’t get high marks on TTAC either. One commenter mentioned the use of several short guys to make the car look more imposing.

    This is NOT a Super Bowl ad. It’s easy to tell because those jerseys are from the Atlanta Falcons.

    buh-dum-TISH!

    The thing that I noticed (other than her OK bod…too many clothes!) was like the “Losing My Religion” thread:
    they put the blues music in a major key…it just didn’t fit.

    I guess I’m gay-for-a-day.

    Ha! She’s not even remotely good looking. She’s got toothpicks for legs and a pine board flat arse. It’s amazing how idiotic men act over an obviously weak specimen of the female form. And the former poster was right, seemed more like a commercial about her than it was about the car.

    From the diaphragm up, Kate Upton is gorgeous; down, average. And she never touches the car or gets wet, an essential to “sexy.”

    Why the black guys? They don’t buy Benzes, they buy Cadillac ‘Sclades (unless they’re Haitian and there’s only one of them in the NFL.)

    Czar is spot on about the music.

    Moe Tom’s taste reflects mine (Cool Hand Luke set several standards, and Burns Nicht is tonight!) and Brad ID’s her correctly as Joy Harmon.

    And CONGRATULATIONS, MENDERGRAMPS!!

    Now, got coffee, got OJ, got sausage cheese mcwaffle, time to hit recycle button and review all those film clips!

    Advertisement gets all of the internet in a lather = major win for the agency. That said, I haven’t watched it yet but I wouldn’t kick Kate out of bed for eating crackers.
