It is undeniable that sex sells, but a Portland Ducati Dealership has decided to capitalize on this fact in a very humorous and entertaining way. It focuses on classic motorcycle shots revolving around women posing seductively around the merchandise and turns it on its head by getting males to mock them. And not just any males, but the ones that are employed at the Portland Ducati Dealership itself.

Arranged and shot by photographer Alicia Mariah Elfving, the Portland Ducati Dealership ad campaign Arun Sharma, the general manager. Senior technician A.J. Ralston states, "It seems like we always get a lot of flak from customers whenever we put something up on our Facebook page that has a beautiful woman on a motorcycle, so making light of all of that and having a good time doing it seemed like a good idea."
