Kate Upton’s Mercedes-Benz Ad: Not So Hot?

Posted Tuesday January 22, 2013 2:25 PM GMT

She definitely has a way of making men weak in the knees, but Kate Upton's new commercial for Mercedes-Benz is getting panned for failing to deliver on its sexy expectations.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl is supposed to get sudsy by scrubbing the German carmaker’s latest model.

Although the ad promises, “Kate Upton washes the new Mercedes CLA in slow motion,” she never actually does.

Instead Kate strolls around in a black top and denim shorts and mouths a few unknown words to a crew of hunky men who handle the car washing duties.

Spectators have complained, “This ad is the worst.. would have been better if she was one washing it then yes i would have bought that CLA. but now...nope,” and, “This is the worst car ad I've ever seen in my entire life. I would expect such a vulgar and tatty commercial from any other car company except from Mercedes.”
