We see them everyday. These strange, hyper-real, ultra-bright, excessively cheesy stock images. They hardly penetrate the consciousness anymore, but with a bit of tweaking and some superior photo-shopping skills, the stock photos used to promote Vince Vaughn’s new film Unfinished Business do.
Vaughn, Dave Franco, Tim Wilkinson and other co-stars have had their heads inserted into twelve generic stock photos, featuring the group at meetings, laughing with each other while pointing at computers, standing with their arms folded ready for business, plus various other cheesy cringeworthy poses (you know, the usual stuff).
The images are being made available for free download—for editorial use only—over the next few weeks.
What at first starts as a standard celebrity endorsement video for a new product quickly descends into one man's—completely unhinged—obsession with running in Nike's new video series, featuring comedian Kevin Hart (and his glorious beard). The series is introduced via a short clip, showing Hart excitedly unboxing the new product. From there, the madness ensues, with Hart putting on his best impersonation of Forrest Gump crossed with the protagonist from Into the Wild.
