Gross Scion Ad Features “Bikini Babes,” Terrible Suspension And Nausea [VIDEO]

A new (actually, really real) Scion car commercial might have you asking yourself whether it’s more insulting to women… or Scion.
The concept is Lloyd-and-Harry simple: A bunch of bikini-clad “babes” attempt to eat donuts and drink milk while being whipped around in a tiny, cramped Scion. (Hence the name of the commercial, “Babes ‘N Donuts” — get it?)
After the women are assembled in the car, the driver proceeds to hurl them around at hurling, hurlish speeds and angles, while they all scream in terror and spill their wasted treats on themselves and the car. At one point you hear one of them gagging and scream “I don’t feel so good!” As I said, “hurling.”
Yes, it’s the image every car company wants in its ad: Its vehicle’s passengers shrieking during a decidedly bumpy, uncomfortable ride, during which one of them announces she about to vomit. And milk-soaked upholstery. Yum.
