WATCH: Toyota Uses Transgender Model In Controversial New Ad

A bikini-clad model strutting her stuff in a car commercial is nothing new. But in Toyota‘s latest ad for its Auris, which is international speak for Corolla, that bikini babe happens to be androgynous male Stav Strashko. Move over, Andrej Pejic.

The commercial features a Ukraine-born Strashko wearing nothing but a black jacket and red bikini bottoms, and walking towards the car. One would think that those perfectly shaped buttocks belong to a lady, but when Strashko finally turns around, surprise!

If you really want to know, the tagline across his face translates to ”Not in trend, not casual, not for everyone.”

Strashko sees himself as a transgender model, according to Stuff, but we see him as being incredibly awesome. He showed off his achievement on his Facebook page:

“Omg Its finally out my ass and face on toyota’s new auris commercial!!!! :))))))))”

The ad is reportedly only airing in Japan, but we’ve got it right here:
