This picture is currently going around on Twitter and Facebook as being Aston Martin’s new ad for pre-owned Aston Martin cars at used.astonmartin.com. The message: “You know you’re not the first, but do you really care?”

Funny as it is, it’s highly unlikely that this is a real Aston Martin ad. Someone must have just doctored this up in Photoshop and posted it online. After which it went viral. Besides, there is a typo in the ad makes it 100% clear that this is indeed a fake ad: it says “PRE OWED” instead of “PRE OWNED”.

A quick search on Google Images shows that the photo was taken from the January 2012 issue of Playboy Germany, showing dutch Playmate Rosanne Jongenelen.

The message is not original either. The same tagline was used in 2008 by BMW to advertise their Premium Selection. Yes, that ad was real.

This needs to be made into a big poster ASAP. I own a one off aston and I do not find this add the least bit offensive.

It says “pre owed”. It should be ” pre owned”. It is a shame that such a great prank would be so sloppily put together.

I would certainly put that poster above my bed, probably last until the wife sees it, ha ha
