The Suzuki Swift Sport ad you can watch after the jump is getting pulled because Australian authorities for health and safety think it portrays irresponsible ‘hoon’ driving and linking speeding and dangerous driving with sex appeal. Well, that’s what sporty cars are all about, aren’t they! Suzuki is just being honest.
Officials say the ad depict unsafe driving by showing the car sliding about in a car park, and includes footage of hard acceleration. The most ridiculous part is the complaint that says the car has its fog lights on in a multi-storey car park, which is against the Australian road rules. Come on, people. The presence of a hot girl – who apparently keeps getting hotter as the guy drives more vigorously – makes it too much for people in sensible shoes to tolerate.
It’s a cool ad, but how shallow a girl must be to get turned on by a yellow Japanese hatchback!
