‘Clever’ media buyers get their just desserts in Imgur’s selection of poster and press howlers

Oh yeah, what is it this time? A portrait ad on the first A4 news page? A scratch and sniff invitation on the leader page? Luddite, I know.

Anyway photo-sharing site has produced 23 unfortunate placements which should put the aforementioned media buyers in their place. Here’s one.

Well worth a longer look.
