Nude dude shows up in French children's fashion ad (NSFW).

(click images, via Stylist UK)
Now that's a photobombing.
The man showed up today on La Redoute's Website in a photo promoting their kidswear. The image has apparently since been removed, and the retailer has apologized on facebook. How could professional people miss that?!? Did they miss it? Or, is that the photographer's pervy uncle? This is just fucking hilarious.
Pedobear approves of this ad.

Obviously 'shopped. The horizon doesn't align. I suspect a follow-up story about some disgrunted graphic designer will come of this.

I don't know Kelly. It does look sketchy, but the water looks legit.

It does really look legit but to be honest we're all (we being myself and other europeans working in advertising/communication) wondering what's the backstory on that! I mean there has to be at least 25 people who had to give their approval on the pic. I would have definitely given mine and that's probably why I don't work for la Redoute!

See in Europe it's not evil to be nude, even in public, In America you are instantly a pedophile even if your naked in your own home.

Very amusing! I love these minor incidents of sabotage! Reminds me of a photo of Jamie Oliver in Boots The Chemist's catalogue back in the late 90's. Some disgruntled, apparently soon to be redundant designer photoshopped a large piece of French Bread between the Naked Chef's legs, which looked more like a huge thick bronzed cock than anything else. The catalogue was signed off, printed in the millions, cue me rolling on the floor in laughter (catalogue in hand) outide my local branch of Boots The Chemist.

Here's the best link I can find (it's not a paper bag, it's the end of a baguette)

PS copyranter, you must have an extremely large, high definition computer screen if you're telling us that this is NSFW.

Don't forget the 2007 Ikea catalogue controversy:

Many Europeans will be baffled by the connection you are making. What does being nude on the beach have anything to do with pedophilia? Sounds like just another anglo knee-jerk reaction to me.
