UPDATE: This Is Not The First Time Kim Ridley Has Used Daughter Lexxa As A Model

You guys. We thought the provocative eBay ad in which Kim Ridley’s daughter drapes herself over his used Datsun was pretty gross. Little did we know this is not the first time Kim has used his daughter as a model — and the eBay shots weren’t even the most egregious ones!
Ridley readily admits that he uses his daughter’s likeness often to sell cars and motorcycles in an AdWeek interview:
“If I felt bad about it, I wouldn’t do it,” Papa Ridley—who runs Ridley’s Rides in Eugene, Ore.—tells AdFreak, adding that he often uses sexy snaps of his daughter and her pals to move product. “Girls and dogs attract people’s attention,” he says. He’s also used Max, his golden retriever, in ads, including a motorcycle shot with Lexxa driving and the dog in the sidecar.
Ahhh, so much to unpack here, but rather than do that let’s take a look at some of the other shots of Kim’s daughter, taken from his website. Click through if you dare.
