this is the perfect post to follow up our photoshop disasters post. welcome to ‘un-photoshopped disasters’.
i was checking out ‘texts from last night’, the blog i wrote about a couple of days ago. it’s pretty amazing, in fact, it’s such a popular blog that companies pay good money to advertise on it.
while there i came across a rather fancy ad. it’s not just your run of the mill static image with a headline and a logo. oh no, this one is a little more sophisticated. it’s actually a moving advertisement. it’s made up of three separate rotating images. and so first you see the one, then it fades into the next image, and then finally to the last frame which reveals the logo. and then the entire thing repeats. you get my drift?
since i’m a laggard i have no clue how to copy and paste the animated piece, so you’ll have to do with stills and use the part of your imagination that files your taxes, to picture the images rotating. here we go:
and lastly the people who brought you the ad and want you to buy their product:
seriously! really american apparel? really?
what’s up with the tan line? (don’t even get me started on the hooker/model) you went to all that trouble to take the photographs, animate them, and paid good money to buy the advertising space and you couldn’t spend five minutes retouching out her tan line?
did you run out of time? think we wouldn’t notice? not know how to use photoshop? stop to scratch your balls and forget what you were doing? what happened here?
really? dudes at american apparel, hang your heads in shame. you don’t deserve to sell any of your trailer park malibu swimsuit/bodysuits. not one!
if you want to see the ad for yourself, it’s over here, or at least it was at the time this was posted. i can’t guarantee it will still be there when you go look.
