Default Cigarett Ad Magic??

I know Cigarette ads are known for cool running shots with a sexy flare, but the ad in this month's Powerboat Mag (oct/nov issue page 9) is truly awe inspiring. I mean how does the boat fly across the water with the throttles at idle, the gear shifts in neutral, and a captain that looks about 3 feet tall with no arms?

Nice photoshop job? Didn't want to get the boat wet?

Actually, if I owned that boat, it would probably be sitting in the middle of my dining room and not on the water! Too pretty to get wet.

Can you scan the pic? I like a good laugh when staged pics are messed up.

I could try, but not sure if I would be violating any copywrite laws. Can you re-print an advertisement out of a magazine?

I just went back and looked. It is pretty rough. I bet if we look hard enough we can find the picture that they stole the drives and spray from.

I'm not a lawyer, but I think an ad is meant to be seen so you should be fine.

Not to mention the fact that the driver isn't actually sitting in the seat and is obviously a double amputee! You can see the inside face of the seat. If the driver were sitting there, I'd think you wouldn't be able to do that. Oh, and his hat must be stapled to his head!

You'd think with what those cost and how well they sell that Cig could afford a better graphics guy to make their ads. Or better yet, maybe actually take an actual photograph to use.
