Colour Bar Gaffe

This example of the digital artist's work shows (left) the US version of a Microsoft advertisement Empower your people with the IT tools they need and (right) the Polish version of the same ad. with the all-American black guy replaced by an all-Polish white guy. The artist forgot to whiten the black guy's hand and he also put the replacement white guy's head at a strange angle. Whoops! Microsoft has been forced to apologize for the gaffe and has withdrawn the advertisement. Click the title link for a bigger graphic.
