Blow Up Belly

What kind of plastic-wrapped baby comes out of an off-tone and bellybutton-less disaster like this?

Photoshop Disasters

I doubt the model here had the backbone to argue against her silicone section. Understanding Japanese might help make sense of this disaster. Well, knowing what I do of Japan… probably not.

Unless this is Chinese. What is going on over on that side of the world?

Thanks for the great find Donna!

    Definitely Chinese.

    In truth, this looks less like a photoshop disaster and more like they asked her to hold a “pregnant” lower body in front of her with her blouse covering its top. They just photoshopped away her real body. Maybe it’s considered undignified in China to display real pregnant bellies?

    What ‘Skeptic’ said.

    In fact, if “knowing what you do of Japan” doesn’t even cover the obvious non-Japanese-ity of the text, then I guess I’ll take my chances.

    That doesn’t excuse the missing belly button, of course.

      I can see someone not recognizing the text differences – but I definitely noticed it wasn’t Japanese. And in that case, it does lean toward a Japanese modern aesthetic. At least compared to most Chinese advertising material I’ve seen, which isn’t much.

    Chinese. And not a PSD at all. It’s a FAKE belly to wear to get a seat on the train.

      It’s still some kind of disaster, although as I said, I’m not sure it’s a photoshop one. If it’s just a fake belly, then the woman’s pelvis is connected to it and to the upper torso the wrong way. I would judge that a Photoshop Disaster. If it’s a whole fake torso-and-legs, then the woman’s pose actually makes sense, but having her pose with such a thing is a disaster in itself. Either way, it doesn’t look at all as if she just has a fake belly.

      The belly button is not the issue here. It’s the pose.

        Oh it’s a horribly awkward photo, and something has clearly gone wrong with her spine and arm, but judging from the post and comments, it’s not clear to a lot of people that the belly isn’t the issue at all.

      In ‘Merica, if it aignt Japnese it gotta be Chanese

        Statistically, if it’s not Japanese it’s extremely likely to be Chinese. Especially considering 1/5 of the world’s population lives there.

        Or… it’s an add written in simplified Chinese characters, which are only used in mainland China, so it’s definitely from China?

    Understanding context is very important.
    I’m sure if this man was less known worldwide, people would say his hair is a PSD for being photoshopped on backwards.
