Vince Vaughn and Cast of 'Unfinished Business' Star in Hilarious Stock Photo Series

Vince Vaughn and Cast of 'Unfinished Business' Star in Hilarious Stock Photo Series

We have all come across terribly staged stock images in our careers, and I always cringe when searching simple keywords like "business" on sites like Getty or iStock. It comes with great pleasure to find Getty Images and Fox partnered up to create one of the funniest publicity stunts in preparation for the release of Vince Vaughn's new movie "Unfinished Business." Including cast members Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco, and others, the shots involve fake laughs and poorly photoshopped faces in each and every photo.

As a designer and photographer, I have seen some down right awful stock image options come across my desk from marketing. The genius behind this series by Getty and Fox is simply hilarious and perfectly executed to imitate poorly lit faces and fake bokeh. The disruptive nature of the entire stunt comes with seeing the mundane and ordinarily bad photos paired with instantly recognizable actors. Quite impressive indeed, but the best part is that these images are all available for free (for editorial use only) and you can grab the first four images here for free!

All 12 images will be available for free over the next few weeks through Getty Images.

These are inevitably going to be used by someone who doesn't realize who these people are. So funny, great out of the box marketing.

I'm waiting for the products such as this old Biology book for Serbian 8 graders

Here in Venezuela I remember saw some advertisements from a Hotel in the roads with pictures of Jessica Alba and Angelina Jolie. Hilarious!
