Toyota Shocks with Topless and Androgynous Teen Model
In the latest ad for the 2013 Toyota Auris hatchback, the car company has decided to completely break away from their conservative mold and feature a topless model.
Before your eyes bulge out of their sockets, here’s a bit more information about the featured model. The teen Stav Strashko is 19-years-old and is actually a male Ukrainian model. With his obvious androgynous appearance, he’s landed quite a few female modeling jobs.
“The mind sees what it wants.” Strashko said in an interview with Candy Mag, “I realized that I was androgynous when I began to model. All the stylists put women’s clothes on me and then it struck me that I can really look like a woman.”
“I’ve never thought about becoming a woman. I feel very comfortable in my own body just the way it is,” he also added.
And as the Toyota commercial clearly states: “Not trendy, not casual, not for everyone.”
