Ad Fail

From ar15.com, an ad for a gun store in Pennsylvania:

From Stuff

I saw that and realized that Guav, regular reader and commenter here, had created that image a bit back because the press kept reporting some shooter used an AK-15, which doesn’t exist (layers of editorial oversight indeed). So Guav photoshopped one up.

One wonders how that happens? The current guess is the shop owner paid a graphics guy for an ad. Only the shop owner misspelled AR-15 or has bad handwriting and his R looks like a K. So, the ad or graphics guy Googled up the wrong thing.

Still, funny. A couple of guys from ar15.com are going to go the shop and ask about it. Not just to be difficult but because the shop has a good deal on 5.56 ammo.

    That sounds like a fun weapon. I’d love to get my hands on a .30-‘1911.

    I’ve got my eye on a nice little 38mm Uzi-47 down at my local gun shop.

    In other words, their ad person stole someone else’s copyrighted work to use for their own financial gain? It’s not hard to look at the image on Guav’s page to see that he has “(c) all rights reserved” listed for that image.
