Sexy sumos pose with the 2011 Subaru Forester – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Remember the sexy sumo wrestlers that starred in a Canadian Subaru Forester commercial in 2008? They're back, and, uh, hotter than ever?

In this new ad spot for the updated 2011 Subaru Forester, the sumos are once again put front and center, striking poses at the gas station, the beach and – of course – the car wash. Subaru says that with the Forester, sexy comes standard, and if this is the automaker's definition of what's attractive, then, well, so be it. Still, these Japanese wrestlers don't hold a candle to Tawny Kitaen.

Follow the jump to see the 60-second ad spot for yourself.

      I'm sure they couldn't hold a candle to her... Just ask Chuck Finley

      You're kidding right? There is NOTHING sexy about this. NOTHING.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Original was better...

        What am I - a target for spam?
      • 4 Years Ago
      best. ad. eeeevvvvvvvvaaaaa!
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like it, I didn't see the first run, but the idea is cool enough to pass :)
        • 4 Years Ago
        I got a little "exited"
      • 4 Years Ago
      Is this the best Subaru can do? Perhaps they should fire their ad agency and hire a new one. Sexy Sumo Wrestlers? Yeck!!
      • 4 Years Ago
      That is just hilarious! I love the open denial of their appearance. Just label them as something we can not see. Over the top? Maybe. But still funny. When your done laughing head over to hTtP://CoolGames@bit.ly/dX6arj using a free member pass to have fun with their premium games.

      Nothing says sexy like a 4-speed automatic ;)
        • 4 Years Ago
        and the old, 224hp EJ25. :(

      this ad is good.

      really grabs your attention.

      you don't know whether to laugh, or feel repulsed.
      I felt both.

      at least you know it's built tough, and won't cave in when a sumo sits on your hood.

      • 4 Years Ago
      Eh.... not what I think of when I hear "sexy" and "Japan".
