Missing legs, 'creepy' blue teeth and one suspiciously-long torso: New Hollister ad has MULTIPLE Photoshop fails
18:48 GMT, 30 July 2012
It's common for fashion brands to commit multiple Photoshop fails, but rarely does a brand unveil several in one day.
Hollister Co, the lifestyle brand from Abercrombie & Fitch Co, released a new promotional image, featuring one male and one female model, on its Facebook page today.
In one image, which was released first, the two models' legs have been chopped off while an updated version of the photo, which replaces the legs, emphasises the female model's unusually-long torso.
Odd: Fashion brand Hollister has featured an image that shows two models without two of their legs (above) on its Facebook page. An updated image fixed the legs but failed to fix the female model's elongated torso
Update: A new version of the photo, above, replaced a missing leg but also emphasised her lack of shoulders
Originally spotted by Photoshop Disasters, the female model is seemingly wearing a blue bikini top although it is entirely hidden from view as the male model's shoulder is blocking it.
Also, her shoulders are non-existent, suggesting that the retouch may have involved lifting her head entirely off her body in order to sit at the same level as her male counterpart.
Not happy: Facebook fans of the brand take to the site to express their disapproval over the new ad
An updated image, which simply crops the
photo a little tighter, uses an added panel of bright red swimming
trunks in what is likely to suggest that the leg has been returned to
But focus has simply turned to the poor female model whose torso looks even longer than the one seen in the previous shot.
Even the brand's Facebook fans have criticised such poor imagery – and for further reasons also.
One fan wrote: 'They look like Barbies gone wrong on steroids'.
Another wrote: 'This is the third time they've re-uploaded this, you just can't fix this awkward pic no matter what you do'.
One further comment reads: 'I can Photoshop better than you'.
Other fans makes note of how blue the model's' mouths look.
'Were they eating blueberry lollipops Their teeth are creepy and blue,' another comment reads.
Other images in the campaign show the model couple kissing as well as the suspiciously flawless male model posing on his own.
