Microsoft Poland: Racism and Photoshop Disasters
I don't know what's worse about this Microsoft Poland version of its BPI (Business Productivity Infrastructure) ad... the racism or the bad Photoshop. Look closely at this image. Got it? Okay... now look at this one. Does anything strike you as... odd? Surely this joins the pantheon of Photoshop Disasters.
How about that mannequin-looking monstrosity in the middle? If you think your target market doesn't believe in black people (Black people are totally real, take my word for it if you must), then could you not just shoot a different photo? Which moron thought that hiring a second grader to bust open Photoshop Elements was the way to go here?
Microsoft Poland apologized, saying that they Photoshopped the image(if you can even call it "Photoshopped") because there aren't too many black guys in Poland... but are there many Asians? The Asian guy survives the Great Photoshop Massacre here.
Now I'm annoyed.
