Audi slammed for ‘sexist’ advert in China comparing women to second hand cars

The commercial, for Audi’s pre-owned car sales website, shows a bride about to get married before the groom’s mother marches over to inspect her nose, ears and teeth. She then glances at the bride’s breasts.

It finishes with a voiceover reading the tagline: “An important decision must be made carefully.”

    No one wants to pay full price for something that’s been driven hard and has excessive mileage on it…

    It’s the same reason you see so many 40+ single women nowadays! 😉

    “An important decision must be made carefully.”

    Indeed. Decisions like how to advertise in one of the world’s biggest markets.

    Don Draper’s still alive and living in China?

    Maybe she’s a horse or a slave or a prostitute.

    The Chinese run their cars into the ground; typically they never even change the oil. So, don’t buy second hand Chinese. On the other hand, second hand Japanese cars are a bargain – typically always garaged and properly serviced. I don’t know about the women…
