Reports confirm that popular "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit model Kate Upton will star alongside R&B crooner Usher in a sexy and desirous Mercedes-Benz commercial which will debut during the 2013 Super Bowl game. The New York Post alleges that the 20-year-old blonde beauty will star as the "object of desire" in the 60-second luxury automobile ad that is described as "a tongue-in-cheek depiction of how far a person might - or might not - go to get their heart's desire." So, how many fans will tune in to the annual football game just to see Upton get her flirt on with the suave "DJ Got us Fallin' in Love" singer?
The Mercedes-Benz commercial was supposedly shot over the weekend - while Upton stars as the "desirable," reports confirm that she will not be the person behind the wheel in the ad.
Another unaired Kate Upton commercial (for the southwest patty melt offered at Carl's Jr. and Hardee's restaurants) leaked online earlier this year. Rumors have it that the ad was slated to air during the 2012 Super Bowl, but it was banned for being way too sexy and provocative! Check it out (this ad also happens to feature a pretty flashy vehicle):
So what do fans think - was the ad definitely a bit too inappropriate to be aired during the popular "family friendly" sporting event?
Hopefully the same doesn't go for this new Mercedes-Benz commercial - surely an ad featuring the infamous "Cat Daddy" dancer alongside the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/dancer/actor will be a highlight of the February event, an occasion deemed "the most watched American television broadcast of the year!"
