Mini, never one to pass on a marketing opportunity, has pounced on the plight of embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, who seems to have an issue with sending pictures of his genitals to young women. Observers will notice that this is the second time the unfortunately named Mr. Weiner has been in the spotlight for his picture messages.
Capitalizing on Weiner's alias, Carlos Danger, Mini has created an account on Twitter - @CarlosDMotor. With a note on the profile page listing "Danger" as the account's middle name, it's sent out just one tweet, containing the message, "Wanna get your hands on my stick?" Attached to the Tweet is a scantily clad Mini Cooper S, with a towel around its "waist" snapping a picture. Too soon? To borrow the brilliant pun from AdWeek, the "auto erotica" was the idea of Mini's marketing agency Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners. Click below for the full tweet.

      I wouldn't buy a Mini, but I do love their marketing department. I have huge respect for a company willing to break out of the norm and make fun of itself and others...specially for peole deserving it like Mr. Weiner.

      What an asinine marketing ploy.

      As a New Yorker, I'm glad that Bloomberg is leaving soon. As much as I detest Anthony Weiner, I'd take him in a heartbeat over Nanny Bloomberg. Hell, I'd vote for Joesph Stalin before I'd vote for Bloomberg. Anyway, that was pretty damn hilarious.

        As a New Yorker, I believe that ETHICS plays a role. When you go and apologize for doing something bad, I'm okay with that. We're humans and we all make mistakes. When you go and apologize and CONTINUE doing it and doing it for OVER A YEAR AFTER YOU APOLOGIZED... how is anyone supposed to trust this man? Its not about what he did, its that he probably thinks he can do whatever he wants and get away with it. That is why he will not get my vote, ever.

        as a new yorker, they both suck. Bloomberg is a joke with his nanny state but weiner is just a plain joke. We need something different, not more of the same crappy people running things

        ngiotta: So not wanting people wantonly killed by RETARDS with guns is a bad thing? This country is PHU_Ked. NY State should issue warrants for every lawful gun owner (nationwide) who's gun ends up in the hands of the dregs of society, especially if that gun was used in the commission of a crime. I don't want to hear "I lost it". If you are too stupid to hang on to your gun, maybe you shouldn't own one. Oh Yeah, you lost it right out the trunk of your car, for around 300% profit.

          This is sillier than the "chicken or the egg question". The more appropriate question is: As a society, which do we value more, Guns or People? Not impressed by the fact that you were in law enforcement, I was in the Military (US Navy). I don't hate guns, just think that the US's fanatic gun culture is detrimental to our society. I don't believe your claim that banning guns increases crime. There will always be crime in every society. Arming the criminals is not the way to stop crime. Criminals get guns from "Law Abiding" citizens, they either steal or buy guns under the table. Which is why the key to stopping that practice is to hold "Law Abiding" gun owners accountable for the guns they buy.

          John, if you are not selling guns out of the back of your car, this does not affect you.

          I think he might be referring to British levels of violent crime. Apples to hatstands. The UK counts violent crime *very* differently to the US. Aside from the fact that crime reporting is so much better in the UK. If the US counted crime the same way, the levels of violent crime would be way off the charts. So in a way, he's correct: when you eliminate guns from culture, then you can begin on a slippery slope toward a far less violent society. It's a shame so many people are so delusional about their cowboy pew pew guns.

      "Unfortunately named Mr. Weiner. . ." More like "aptly named."
