Ridiculous Stock Photo Challenge


So good to see you. Now, stock photos
are normally used by companies for PowerPoints,
promotional material, overall generic imagery. And while some
stock photos are useful, others will never,
ever be needed. In a million years,
throughout history and time in all possibilities, you will never need
some stock photos, including the ones
I’m going to show you today. But we’ve taken
these ridiculous photos, and we’ve added one thing. You have to look at them,
figure out what that one thing is
that we added, and if you get three
out of five of these correct, you win a prize fit
for a stock photo king. It’s time for…♪ I put
your stock photo away ♪
♪ What’s different
about it today? ♪
Little Kid Rock action? You remember that.
Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, the best musical union
in history? Yeah– No, it’s also
very unmemorable. Sorry, Kid… Rockster. Take a look
at your first photo of some friends hanging. Who did we add? Oh, my goodness. We added one of these people. It has to be the guy
in the cart, but hold on. That’s right.
That’s what you want to think. That’s what you wanna think,
isn’t it? That’s so–
such a weird photo. I can– I can remove– If I remove the cart guy, what is the guy who’s pushing
him’s hands on? So you would’ve had to
have added both of them. so I think, as a unit– You’re saying
only one person was added? Only one person was added. Well, then the cart
and the dude with the big eyes are both legit. It’s gotta be the girl
on the left, I think, because of his hands
on the cart. I’m going with the girl
on the far left. Link, you might be a natural.
You are right. We added the girl! I know how to Photoshop! I Photoshopped that.
That’s how I knew. Oh, that– we should work
on our systems. You don’t want me to be
the one– Makes the game easy.
No, I didn’t do it. I knew you were going to pick
one of the guys on the right. No, ’cause of the hands, man. – Oh, wow.
– But let– First of all… now, when you remove the girl,
you’ve got lots of room to put, like, some
really good copy, like… – Or something.
– That’s a great candidate. – Like for a–
– For the test. for, you know,
a cart theft awareness– – Cart awareness.
– …poster. – Give me another one.
– Let’s see how good
you are at this. Here’s a photo of a totally
normal office situation. What did we add? Both of these people
look fake. – Well, yeah.
– Like, their faces. Don’t stare
at them too long. Oh, and now I’m noticing
she’s holding a huge phone. Yeah, that is the new
iPhone X-tra large. And the other guy’s got
a really small phone. First of all,
if it’s not the phone, someone made a phone that big. Man, I don’t think
it’s the phone ’cause
that’s too obvious. Think we’re trying
to throw you off, huh? It’s the woman on the right. No, Link,
it’s the man on the left! Oh, I was so close! Yeah, she’s gotta be alone
with that big ‘ol phone because she’s ordering
horsemeat on the Dark Web. In a middle school hallway. Yes. All right, Link,
you’re not perfect. Dang it. Next up, we have a photo that expresses
some evocative emotion. – Ew.
– What did we add? Now, am I mistaken, or is there a superimposed face and hands
on a woman’s knee? Yeah, that’s true.
You’re not mistaken. That is what’s happening. Thank goodness
you’re also seeing that. The head over the knee
makes no sense, but if you take that away… You’re saying the hands
on the knee do make sense? The hands and
the head together,
I’m saying, make no sense. Okay. If you take that away, this kind of makes sense. Okay. So what are we taking away? What did we add? The heads
with the hands cover– The head with the hands
covering it on the knee makes no sense. That has to be what was added. Link, you’re wrong.
We added the thing to the left. Seriously? From what,
another stock photo? No, this is just an ad
for Proactiv. But you took another
stock photo of the woman’s face
uncovered. – Yeah.
– And put it over there. You know,
because they come in series. Yeah, they come in series. When you find the woman
on the knee, then you find the woman
not on the knee. You know how it is. That is so disturbing. If you’re gonna get
that woman sitting there with her head in her hands, you’re gonna take
multiple photos
and add it to the website. Where did they find that woman
who’s on a knee? I think it’s just
a conjoined twin. This one really sets a scene. What did we add to the photo? Oh, she’s spying on them. I’m going to give you
a hint here. It could be
the smallest details. So the woman spying
through the glass window– She’s very subtle about it,
by the way. It’s not her. Or it could be a detail
about her. It’s not her twin
that’s on the date. It’s not… This is not a place where
you drink wine like that. I think the wine glasses
are very– Logic doesn’t apply
to stock photos. I’m still applying it. It’s the wine glasses. It’s the wedding ring! Even smaller than that, Link. You added a wedding band? Charlie Chinstrap
is single, ladies. – Look at him.
– Dang it. He’s got two ladies
fighting over him and his red wine. All right,
I only got one right. Yeah, you started so strong
and are ending very weak. – Yeah.
– Let’s just see
can go out on a victory, ’cause you’ve already lost
the ability to get
three out of five. Okay. Now, this next photo’s
a bit suggestive, so, kids, avert your eyes. What did we add, Link? What did add to this… un-distasteful photo? This is a disturbing photo. What is this guy,
a physician’s assistant? I mean, a doctor
can’t get away
with shirtlessness. Yeah, I think this is
for, like, an HMO. Yeah, you get
what you pay for, people. You know what I’m saying? I do the PPO.
I don’t know about the HMO. I know what you’ve done here. I know what you’ve done. Judging by the size
of that guy’s head in relationship to his body, that is not the right head
on that body. – Link.
– What are you laughing at? Link, you’ve lost
your bearings, man. We added more pants. Oh, what the crap? Are you freakin’… No, that’s what it was. This is a good time
to remind you guys to get your annual flu shot
and rectal exam. And, Link, unfortunately,
you’re not gonna walk away with this nice piece
of stock photography. I’m just gonna keep this
by my bedside where it already was. Oh, goodness.
