Vicks Ad Blunder – Designers Give Drew Brees a New Birthmark


Did you notice something wrong in the above Vicks ad featuring New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees. Ad designer probably didn’t notice that Drew had a birth mark on one of his cheek and just flipped the image. Now, thanks to Vicks, Brees has a birthmark on both cheeks. FYI, the image on right is the correct one.

Photo manipulation is common and we all know that it is done, but at least the company should get the facts right.
