25338 Terrible product/marketing photos
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.
Expand all images.

And another one from Lidl, here we have a model who seems to be staring intently at a blank page.

Apparently weird stock photos are a thing. Some of these campaigns have probably earned the publisher the only royalty they'll ever receive for them.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.
