Ford is apologizing for an ad that features the Kardashian sisters — tied up and tossed in the trunk of a Figo.

“Leave your worries behind with Figo’s extra large boot,” reads the spot, which features a cartoon depiction of the Kardashians in the bag of a Figo.   It was created by JWT India, and in each spot another alleged rival of the reality star clan is driving the car.

Ford has issued a formal apology, which was posted by Business Insider:

“We deeply regret the publishing of posters that were distasteful and contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within WPP Group. These were never intended for paid publication and should never have been created, let alone uploaded to the Internet.

“We deeply regret this incident and agree with our agency partners that it should have never happened. The posters are contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within Ford and our agency partners.”
