Ads based on political issues are often avoided, however, because even though they may appeal to one segment of a potential customer base, they risk offending and alienating other disgruntled consumers, even if they constitute a small minority of an audience, often engage in public protests that receive widespread coverage and create bad publicity.
It seems all the more unlikely, then, that a multinational company such as the Honda Motor Co.
As a representative with Honda’s corporate communications department told us about this video: Honda has recently discovered that a false and misleading video purporting to be an official Honda advertisement has been circulating on the Internet.
This misleading and defamatory video illegally and inappropriately uses the Honda trademark and other images to make it appear that Honda is engaged in making political statements regarding the Middle East.
Ze verlangt sowieso stiekem naar een pik maar dit is echt de druppel.
