wow. 60 years of scootering evolution leads up to a soft-core scooter video full of girls girls girls. Is this a scooter marketing campaign or a suicide girls video? Oh, there aren't any visible tattoos... must be marketing. Enjoy.
Who exactly is the target market for this ad? It sure doesn't hold back for fear of being blatant. I didn't actually get a look at the scooter in any of the videos. Could have been a Spree for all the information in the message.

Call me married and boring, but I wish the titles had had more to do with the actual scooter in question - clearly they're playing on double-entendre, but at no point is the scooter anything other than a prop, completely inanimate and insignificant. There were a lot of clever things they could have done with this theme rather than just making it male-fantasy lesbian softcore. Honestly, even a cliché "you and your scooter are in a relationship" would have been more appropriate.
And it's not like the Brits (this is a British ad, after all) don't have plenty of readily-available softcore porn - Page 3 girls, for instance, which are "enjoyed" on the subway by men in suits....

Yeah Tom's got it right.... objectifying those scooters is just wrong. Does anyone think of how demeaning it is for those poor scooters to have to sit under hot studio lights being photographed as nothing more than props - objects - not the living, breathing fusions of metal and art that they are?
