This ad for a Canadian used car dealership raises so many questions. Does the person who designed the ad know that the louche gentleman they stuck next to the slogan "You know you're not the first, but do you really care?" is actually designer Tom Ford? If so, is the point of the ad that Tom Ford is a man-whore? Is calling Tom Ford a man-whore a successful way to sell cars? And how many days do we think it will take until Tom Ford sues the used car agency? [Racked National]
