Nothing can so easily send me into apoplectic rage and simultaneous fits of laughter as non-nonsensical photographs in advertising and marketing. I couldn't decide where this thread belongs best as it's both irritating and entertaining at the same time.
Lidl has some brilliant examples, for instance this picture of a woman who is clearly off her tits on some research chems and is seeing hallucinations of vegetables flying around her head.

I am a huge fan of such stock images.
This one is frightening in all sorts of ways.

Not entirely sure where this goes, but it's surely /101/ material.
I mean really. Who the fuck wears this?

I actually did that at 4AM this morning, when a Microsoft representative gave me a legit Win7 Pro key despite the fact that I was running a blatantly pirated copy of Win7 Home Premium and he had remoted in so could see my attempts to upgrade to Win10 for free via the sneaky "I'm a disabled person" route.
Top lad. Wish I could remember his name.

I fucking loathe takeaway menus that get posted through my door with shitty cropped pictures of food splashed around the page with varying degrees of actual food size, gigantic pieces of chicken next to tiny drink cans etc.
It's petty but annoys me nevertheless, if it wasn't for Justeat I'd end up deciding on places strictly on the quality of these menus.

They've finally sussed that the real money is going to be made from "telemetry"- read, selling your personal information.
Expect Windows 11 to be freeware from word go.

They've cottoned on to the 90/9/1 distribution. Individual software sales net them a small amount next to selling Windows in the enterprise, and that in turn is dwarfed by their other products in the enterprise. That's why we've seen things like free Visual Studio and SQL Server on Linux.

It's giving off shit cult vibes. "You investigation ends here, Agent." But only because you slipped, they're too old to have beaten you up.

I thought "I fainted" also encompassed the lying down coming round part of the experience, especially if it's one of those very brief faints where you feel obligated to pop up and say "I'm fine", before you've recovered, and faint again. They might be quite justified in laughing in that case.

I haven't saved any pictures of this, because I didn't find it that striking, but I've been noticing lately how advertising people often seem to think that mixed race people only marry and produce kids with people the exact same mix/shade as themselves.
For example, there was a video advert, under a captcha, of a white boy and mixed race boy playing with Thomas the Tank Engine, then they grow up and at a wedding or something one gives the other a nostalgic/throwback gift of a Thomas the Tank Engine model (weird) then their sons, who looked like younger versions of themselves, were playing with Thomas the Tank Engine. I understand why the advertisers do it, to make it visually obvious who is the son of whom, but it gets me wondering about the statistics of how many mixed race people marry someone the exact same mix. I have been unable to find this advert on YouTube.

I notice a lot of ads have mixed race families too. Which is mostly notable because in every other part of life people seem to mostly stick to similar skintones.

I've noticed that JD Sports' fondness for light-skinned mixed race guys of a few years ago has turned into a fondness for proper black guys now.

I quite like the fact they matched the shadows to the angle of the existing ones. That's show at least some effort with PS.

I saw a photo on The University of Highlands and Islands website with four students/models, one of whom was black, and thought yeah right. I went to Moray College, which was UHI, and there was literally one black guy in the whole college There was one black guy in the whole college when my mum went there too but it was a different black guy. Diverse photos kind of imply they grab four random students and that's the mix.

There is a shopping centre near me with some basic art murals of people shopping. You have every mix of people except a white male/female couple.
Maybe I'm over thinking but I reckon it was intentionally done.

I went to a small specialised music technology college. There were 60 people in the year as follows:
52 white guys
5 white girls
2 asian guys
1 black guy
When they wanted to take promo photos, they were being so blatant about going up to the girls and ethnic guys and being very keen to involve them.

ORGANISATIONS IN 'DESIRE TO APPEAL TO WIDER AUDIENCE' SHOCKER
|>>|| No. 27714
I think I went to the same place as you, though I suppose it's just par for the course for this sort of thing. They used me in one of their photos, and I strongly suspect it was because despite me being a white man, I was also a bit fat, which was at least a bit more diverse than the 200 other skinny producer nerds.
It's odd because in the real world most of the really exceptional people I've worked with weren't represented by the majority. Female producers tend to be miles above most of the white males I went to uni with. Maybe it's just because they've had to work harder to get where they are, or maybe it's coincidence, I dunno.

I just walked past this poster. If there's one thing you see on that building site, it's lots and lots of black lady workmen.

I feel like the white guys behind her are the more obvious imposters they look painfully middle class like the hardest days labour they ever did was repotting the vegetable patch.

Needs more Lithuanian to look like any modern building site. Black women and old dudes are the last thing you'll find there.

They fact that they even have their PPE on and so clean means they're probably Management. Cunts.

Not marketing but isn't this a bit of an unfortunate photo?

That is rather off.
If your Nan is anything like mine, then just get her some nice flowers. She has everything she needs, although she does occasionally like trying new things. Last Christmas I got her some Huel, of all things, and she loved it. Flowers are a safe option, though.

They've used disturbing toddler words like poo and tummy for years but this does seem extra-vulgar.

The worst bit is when doctors use it in actual documentation. I think they get into this toddler-speak mode because some patients will be naturally anxious or have difficulty understanding otherwise, but then they kind of get stuck in it.
I sometimes notice women doing a similar thing when they've been around kids, they go a bit dopey and baby-brained.

My ex still calls emergency vehicles "nee naws" as in, oh, pull over, here come the nee naws.
It was sort of funny but mostly very odd.

I was just thinking their cultural literacy must be as impressive as whoever thought [word redacted because I just got banned for an hour for posting it] was a good name for Woolworths kids beds. It's not like when you used to see accidentally goatse-looking logos and think oh well, the designer's just oblivious to memes. That was a bit enviable.

Maybe someone at Cummings just thought it was finally time to address the company name with a little nod.

I used to read a trade mag called Computing. They had a long-running gag about "black women with routers". And it was true, almost without fail every advert for a router used to have a very happy-looking black woman holding it.
