Ladies and Gents…you can stop staring now!
It may be sad news for some of you to find out ‘that’ viral Aston Martin is actually indeed a fake. After trending worldwide on twitter, facebook and forums galore it was not a cleverly devised marketing campaign from Aston Martin but a simple Photoshop probably made by some spotty teenager in his bedroom.

Not only advertising, but also documents can be fake. The services of lawyers in a situation where a person was caught with false documents costs a lot of money – it’s quite difficult to win a case.

One thing we can take home from this scandal is the saying ‘sex sells’ has never been more true today.
Even though this was a hoax ad: do you think this will benefit or detrimental to Aston Martin? Let us know below or tweet us @CarhootsUK
