We know at Autoblog Canada that the relationship between sleek new cars and beautiful models is as old as your Dad's dinner table jokes. Whether it is a poorly executed, graphic display of skin at a local car show or an upscale approach at the world's leading car shows with classy runway models, it is a challenge to separate the two. And marketers know that even shameless approaches do get clicks despite not winning any advertizing awards in the process.
Last week we brought you an article that drew attention to four new viral videos that Scion had released. The videos were supposed to display all kinds of everyday people enjoying the ride from the front and back seat of their new micro compact, the iQ. While the collection of videos seemed corny from start to finish, it appears more than a few people took issue with one of the videos. The video entitled "Babes'n'Donuts" was pulled from their YouTube site and is now listed as private but Scion has not commented on why.
We're going to wager a guess and say images like the one above could be construed as overtly sexual. While Scion might have just been attempting to have some fun in the sun here (they are California-based after all) the implications might be too much even though another video after the jump also features shirtless male models covered in milk.
You be the judge on the videos after the jump.
