Is Ralph Lauren now Photoshopping dogs?


Ralph Lauren, long criticized for Photoshopping humans, is now under fire for allegedly Photoshopping non-humans. At issue is the Camp Polo ad above, which features a Labrador with an unusual-looking head. At first glance, the proportion of the head to the body looks uneven, but as the Daily Mail points out, another ad with the same cast shows the same dog looking pretty normal. Some think it's just the dog's fur poofing out from the shirt, which I agree with, but it's not unreasonable to be skeptical, given the marketer's track record with an overactive Photoshop pen. Besides, anyone who would put a dog in a collared shirt is capable of anything. But the bottom line here is: At least they didn't Photoshop a human penis on the dog.
