Swatch: Switch

Swatch arm switching

Undecided about which direction the model should be facing, they ended up placing a dollar each way.

Thanks Manuspi for the great find. You can see the original here (Click through the photos) or below. If you can’t see the PSD, please check out our marked up image.

 
That’s a funny watch. It looks like it was designed by a fishing lure company. So does she. It all fits together. Grace and clarity have no room in the big fish-eat-fish world. No PSD: art direction triumph!

Is that smoke? Is it her? The watch? Is smoke a good comforting thing around instruments? By WaldoBaby

    I’m double jointed, and I can do that easily with my arm. I even get the same indentation in the front at the elbow joint.

      I can get my arm to look almost exactly like that to, but it’s uncomfortable and unnatural.

      It’s far more likely her arm was photoshopped on backwards (especially considering her face is also photoshopped on) than that she chose to do that. I also seriously doubt the photographer sat and waited while she contorted herself for no reason (it adds nothing artistically).

        “I also seriously doubt the photographer sat and waited while she
        contorted herself for no reason (it adds nothing artistically).”

        So your hypothesis is that the person in charge of the composition did… what exactly? To bend the arm backward in Photoshop would require to select it, bend it, then somehow clone the dress behind it to hide the change… Why would anyone do that?

        I like to spot PSD’s, but I also like to at least understand a little how they could have been produced, especially in a case where the “disaster” can be easily achieved in real life, without Photoshop. IMO that arm position can come quite easily (although not for everybody) in such a posture.

      Yes, I am sure that it is possible for someone to contort their arm into a stupid backwards-looking abomination.  But why the HELL would anyone do that for an ad photo?  Do Swatches run backwards?  Do you wear them inside out?  Do arms grow out of your chin?  

      Answer key: They wouldn’t.  No.  No.  No.

      No you can’t. Unless you’re from other planet.

         is this the obligatory mascot troll of this page here? any other reason why such posts are not moderated?

  • Anon2

    anon, her shoulder is backwards.

  • anon

    yeah my ex was double jointed, not a photoshop, just poor image selection

    • RichardWagner

      And because your ex was double-jointed, this is “not a photoshop”? Would you please pay your logic bill for next month?

    • A. Zukow

       Strange love.

  • queenmaeve

    Not only is her arm on backwards, she’s wearing the watch upside-down.

  • NeilH

    Fail.  She’s just double-jointed.

    • http://rland.myopenid.com/ Rai

      I’m double jointed and can do some pretty crazy things with my arms. I can turn my arm around like that but my hand will be facing the other way. I can turn my hand back around and still have my arm backwards but it doesn’t look like that (the arm becomes straight) and isn’t comfortable.

      Reality is it is an unrealistic (and improbably) position that she has no reason to take.

      HERE ARM IS ON BACKWARDS.

      Comment fail. 

      • Commie

        Your a fail and you’re ass is on backwords.

        Awesome PSD. hahaha

        • Bargonzo

          Can someone please ban this 11 year old troll for good?

          • Commie

            Stop being jealous. It is a real PSD. Are you blind?! Moron.

          • Bargonzo

            Ban this troll or I will fart on y’all and it will be super stinky!

  • Fabiane Ariello

    According to my boyfriend, this is very common… very skinny girls can look like this in photographs.

    (I don’t agree with him, though. But he thinks he knows everything, so…)

    • A. Zukow

      I agree that you deserve each other.

  • Misshap

    Not PSD. It’s INTENTIONAL!

    It has already been said, but I say it again: “My girlfriend is double-jointed and therefore this is not a PSD”… wait, um,… that isn’t my girlfriend on the pic… nevermind, logic is overrated…

  • Antler

    wow this is so confusing to watch!

  • ameer adel

    i guess you guys need to put another concept for such photo, for swatch for an example it might not shows as flaw as much as a twist in the ” new ” design or new concept, not entirely about a PsD, thats only my opinion.

  • Buck

    I just learned something about myself – I learned that my right arm won’t hyperextend like that, but my left will. I never noticed that before. I wonder if that’s why I golf better left handed than right.

    Also, it dimples like that when it’s hyperextended. As the bicep stretches it pushes the muscle group of the upper forearm toward the back, so you see more of the inside of the elbow.

    Huh. I’m leaning toward “not photoshop” for this one. Still, an awkward image.

      Greetings from planet Earth.

    She is touching her chin with her shoulder, if she puts her shoulder down and stretch her fingers she could scratch the lower part of her knee without bending over. Can double jointed girls do that? Besides she has a curved forearm.

  • 3dworking

    i would still do her

  • olaf

    am I he only one who is wondering about the shadow of a penis in the background?

  • PhotoIndustryMole

    Hey sorry to burst the bubble but
    I was right next to this model when the shot was taken and it’s all for real
    that really is how her arm bends 

    • 3dworking

      did you envy her?

      • PhotoIndustryMole

        Who wouldn’t be envious of someone who is chosen to front and international campaign, is that beautiful and paid loads per day to smile and be photographed for an hour and spend the rest of the day lounging about?

  • Blu-Ray

    her elbow is on the wrong side
    its facing the same direction as her thumb, so her forearm is kind of rotated

    PhotoIndustryMole – if this is real if feel terribly sorry for her

    • PhotoIndustryMole

      Theres loads of girls that can do this
      it just means that their elbow is a little more flexible than others
      it doesn’t hurt and its only something that happens at the hyperextension end of travel so most of the time people won’t even see it
      no need to feel sorry for her

    I have not looked at the clock, but I looked at the presenter. Oh sorry! thanks for sharing this..i was nice idea from you

  • Kuro

    If I stretch my arm its also like this… :/

    Clearly no photoshop in the arm… If you look at the shape of her forearm, I think that pretty much clears it. And, why would they mirror her whole arm? What would be the purpose? Image of the girl is definitely mirrored though…

  • yummyfur

    Is it just me or does that wispy shape in the background look like a giant cock.
