Microsoft’s racist ad makes headlines

This one is a couple of days old since i was out on vacation while the story broke.

Basically microsoft rolled out the following ads for different regions… and from what it looks, their graphic designers are a bit racist.

here is the ad for the USA

500x_microsoft_photoshop

and here is the polish version of the same ad…

500x_microsoft_photoshop_2

the story has been all over the net, and microsoft has even issued an official apology.  this will go down as one of the best photoshop mistakes ever.
