Epic Fail: Drunk Tow Boat Operator Runs out of Gas and Needs his own Tow.

I saw this posted over on the failblog and I couldn’t help but post it.

Victoria's Secrets Photoshop Disaster

We all know the world of modeling and print advertising is fake. If you didn’t know its fake, let me tell you that it is F-A-K-E. I once had a kayaking student who worked in an advertising company where he photographed cereal bowls for packaging. I believed him when he said your average bowl of cereal is made up of about 10-15 different photos.

Usually ads are pretty well and don’t notice the trickery but sometimes they are thrown together with pretty poor results which in turn provides for some great content for

Here is a recent flyer ad for The Bay up here in Canada. Want guess the problem? A couple clues: A poorly oversized bow, knees that are not at the right height and seem to be different sizes. What about that her right shoulder? It seems to have been made out of thin air. Finally the shoes seem to be different sizes.
