Oh, the wonders of the internet. Without it, not only would we not have realised that Kate Moss was off gallivanting with oversized anthropomorphic rodents in South America, but neither would we have been alerted to the fact that Tom Ford is apparently pedalling second hand cars in Canada.
Now then. We are assuming he’s actually NOT moonlighting on a second hand car lot, although you can just imagine his plausible manner and excellent sales technique. So then we can assume that someone, most probably Mr Dale Wurfel - the proud owner of the car lot where this magnificent poster is currently displayed - has come across the portrait of Ford on Google images or some such, and decided that this handsome man fits his brand DNA like no other.
Assuming that Mr Ford (geddit?) is not personally acquainted with Mr Wurfel himself, we are now wondering what the designer/director will think of this? Do you think he’ll be annoyed? Do you think Mr Wurfel will have to placate him with offers of heavily discounted Ford Sierras? Internet! You HAVE to get back to us on this because we need to know the rest of this story!
Yikes! We’ve only just noticed the tagline they have imposed on Ford’s lavisciously unbuttoned shirt. ‘You know you’re not the first. But do you really care?’ What on earth can they be implying by this? That lovely Mr Ford has been around the block more than a few times? That is OUTRAGEOUS! And, in fact Tom is in a stable relationship with Richard Buckley and has been for years and years . . .
