Stock photos are a treasure trove of entertainment. You can browse through images of women laughing alone while eating salad, men smiling enthusiastically while talking on their cell phones and of course, one of the most popular stock photo clichés: People looking happy in corporate America.
In a genius marketing ploy, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with iStock by Getty Images to create a series of clichéd stock images to promote the movie Unfinished Business. Released this Friday, Unfinished Business is about a business trip that goes awry. Star Vince Vaughn and co-stars Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco and others took a series of stock images that were filled with hilariously generic, antiseptic and dry poses that are characteristic of stock imagery representing corporate America. Our favorite image has to be a photo of Dave Franco smiling as he looks at a business forecast chart. Because business forecasting puts a smile on everyone's face.
