Cheesy iStock photos hijacked by Twentieth Century Fox
If you’ve spotted Mr Vince Vaughan wearing a beige suit and looking a bit smug in some rather odd stock photos, you would be forgiven for thinking that perhaps this Hollywood funny-man has just fallen on hard times.
But not to worry, Vaughan and his fellow ‘colleagues’ including Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson, are not looking vacantly into the distance of high resolution office settings because their film careers are dwindling – quite the opposite. Phew.
In tandem with the release of new film Unfinished Business, Twentieth Century Fox have teamed up with iStock to produce a series of images which sees the film’s stars photoshopped into pre-existing stock photos, fulfilling all your office photography needs.
According to Adweek, the film centres around a business trip which “goes off the rails in every imaginable—and unimaginable—way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.” But of course.
How the original models feel about being cropped out remains to be seen…
