At work I’ve been working out some details for an ad campaign discussing weight. For inspiration and ideas I turn to iStockphoto. I needed to find a fat guy.
And I found one.
I don’t know who this actor/model is, but he appears to be comfortable posing in scenes that use his obese body to its fullest. For example:
- Being a couch potato
- Acting like a gorilla
- Pigging out in front of a plate of spaghetti
- Looking like a mobster
- Being a helpless moron looking for the pool
- Snorting cocaine
For stock photography, like in everything, there’s never notoriety in the middle of the road. You can either be beautiful or disturbing.
