It’s not the first time that we’ve seen a Photoshop failure, but it’s funny pretty much every time. Korean electronics manufacturer has had a case of the Photoshop failure, deciding to use a screenshot of Apple’s Mobile Safari browser in an ad for the Android-based Optimus 2X.

You’ll have to be quick to catch it, but check out this video at about the 5-second mark:

As Reddit commenter Rudy69 states, the scene probably went something like this —

Producer: Quick we need a good looking browser to show off on our phone!

Random tech guy: Lets use Safari ಠ_ಠ

Producer: Looks great! Go! Go! Go!

Sorry, LG, but no amount of content-aware automation is going to fix a goof like that. Just make sure that your disclaimer doesn’t say Photoshopped, it needs to say “The image was enhanced with Adobe® Photoshop® software”, just like Adobe instructed you to do.
