(Newser) – Toyota has dumped an Australian teen night-on-the-town online ad dripping with sexual innuendo and smacking of date rape and incest following a storm of angry complaints. The ad, created by an independent filmmaker, features a young man who arrives at the door of a home to tell the father of his date that he's "taking her virginity out" and promises to "have her on her back by 11." The father, ostensibly talking about the boyfriend's car, mentions that "she can take a good pounding either way."

The ad was voted most popular in a Facebook contest held by Toyota seeking the best online ad to tout its Yaris car, which is usually bought by women. "The ad features a father and his daughter's boyfriend agreeing in a matey way, that the daughter is going to get a 'good pounding.' It has incestuous overtones," complained one of hundreds of respondents angered by the ad. Toyota has pulled the ad from its web site and apologized if it offended anyone, the Telegraph reports.
