Skip to comments.Kia Ad Sparks Pedophile Accusations
Posted on 06/25/2011 10:17:54 PM PDT by TheDingoAteMyBaby
A new Kia ad is raising eyebrows-with some even saying that it promotes pedophilia.
The ad, which promotes a dual-zone climate control feature in one of Kia's cars, took home the Silver Press Lion at the prestigious Cannes Lion Awards. But it is controversial, to say the least.
The ad features a teacher lusting after his elementary school-aged student. On one side of the page, she appears as a young girl. On the other side, though, she becomes a scantily clad, buxom teen, seemingly as a product of the teacher's imagination.

Here is the ad:
I will have to with hold judgement without photographic evidence.
Lets make Pedophilia mainstream. Still think they won’t try??

I once took a class at University on screen writing. There were three things that the instructor stressed made scripts, either for TV, advertising, or movies, grab a person’s attention: sexual situations, tension/violence, or humor.
The next time you watch a commercial or movie remember those three. It explains a lot about what is going on today in visual media.
The MSM/elite is pushing sex & children. It’s as obvious as pie.
I’ve read some comments, even on FR, that come dangerously close.
I don’t get how those two pictures are a KIA ad.
Kia is now owned by Hyundai, who had a really controversial Hyundai ad around the time of the Super Bowl, if memory serves me. Unfortunately i cant remember exactly what the problem was with that one. Im sure someone here will remind me. Anyway, it seems they need to find another ad agency if they want to keep on the American consumer’s favorable side.
Sodom and Gomorrah.
I didn’t say it is acceptable. I said it is what they do to attract viewer’s attention.
It certainly got your attention, didn’t it?
A master at this was Alfred Hitchcock. If you’ve seen some of his movies you’ll recognize what I’m talking about. He knew the right touch. Today’s scriptwriters are morons with no sense of propriety.
I’m not being coy here, rather explaining what we see around us on a daily basis.
I no longer go to see movies, and do not have a television. The advertisements in magazines are every bit as bad as what we find in todays movies and television.
As to whether it is the MSM/elites pushing sex — well, I can understand why you would see it that way. Frankly, I just think they’re morons, eternally unable to create acceptable, creative, and successful media enjoyable by the majority of our population. Basically, they have no respect for other people or their sensibilities.
It’s over the line IMHO. But it should serve as a tool to tell young men not to go into teaching.
“Basically, they have no respect for other people or their sensibilities.”
Almost always true.
Have you seen Geico’s recent commercials, such as “Is the pen mightier than the sword?”
That’s an equally dangerous message, IMO. Young men teachers are often the only positive male role models in the lives of fatherless boys. It does no good to scare good men away from the teaching profession because of fears of pedophilia accusations.
Well, if that ain’t distasteful.
No, sorry, I canceled the cable contract two months ago. Thought I would have a lot more time available to get things done. Instead I spend all my available free time here!
“Kia Motors America (KMA) has become aware of an offensive piece of advertising material that was created by an ad agency in Brazil that KMA has no business relationship with and has never worked with. This ad was not created in the U.S. by Kia Motors America or any of its marketing partners and does not reflect the opinions or values of KMA or Kia Motors Corporation. The ad is undoubtedly inappropriate, and on behalf of Kia Motors we apologize to those who have been offended by it. We can guarantee this advertisement has never and will never be used in any form in the United States, and our global headquarters in Seoul, South Korea is addressing the issue with the independent Brazilian distributor.”
