A perfect juxtaposition, a botox idiot holding a prop it could't put film in. One more confirmation that I made the correct decision when I ditched TV.... in 1989.
There are, of course, 101 possibilities.
I've also noticed this motif, particularly in skin care ads. I think they are trying to get across the point that their product can "freeze time" like a photographed is assumed to.
I just watched it, it was a digital Leica. Assuming they only used one that is, it had a colour screen on the back.The ads that crack me up are the ones with actors pretending to be photographers. There is one I am thinking of for some geriatric drug and the "actographer" goes out with a digital Hasseblad and shoots eagles and flowers, then has a "gallery" show with huge prints on the walls because those are exactly the type of photographs that sell in galleries. Lol.
There is a commercial as well for one of those business card companies that features a newby actographer. Of course he makes business cards and passes them out. Goes to show how many people think they are photographers these days if a commercial is made about it. I'd bet that the company noticed how many orders from "photographers" they were getting.
A few years ago there was a Chanel ad i think it was with Audrey Tautou and she was carrying a Leica, but it was kind of hard to notice the Leica.
