Stock photos are awkward – there’s no way around it. You’ve been bothered by the faux-emotionally charged photos since creating your very first slide show. Don’t worry, we won’t tell your HR team.
In a brilliant dual-marketing move between Twentieth Century Fox and iStock by Getty Images, Vince Vaughn, James Franco, Tom Wilkinson and the other actors from Fox’s upcoming film Unfinished Business joined together to poke fun at the existence of stock images by creating their own versions. The result is nothing short of amazing.
iStock is offering the twelve stock images for free (over the course of three weeks,) though you have to sign up to grab them.
Here are a few of our favorites captioned with some clear Do’s and Don’ts of the Workplace:
DO: Applaud even when you have no idea what the CEO just said.
DON’T: Make any noise while trying to pass gas in the workplace.
DO: Celebrate all successes in brightly lit whitewashed rooms.
DO: Roll with the homies in V formation.
We know you hate stock images – but you’ve never seen these before. Check out the hilarious marketing campaign…
