The Most Awkward Stock Photos on the Internet

A wise man once said: “stock photo libraries are like a box of chocolate – you never know what you’re gonna get.” We can’t deny that stock images are super useful, particularly when you create your own stunning website. After all, they can hold the key to finding the perfect image or video for your website to hook your viewers in.

That being said, when looking for an image in those online sources, you might discover some real treasures.  Surprising, crazy, or honestly disturbing, some of the visuals might make you wonder what the photographer was consuming thinking when he created such a masterpiece. Somehow, somewhere… a person behind a camera had the following idea: You know what? Let’s shoot a pic of a woman with a carrot in her nose and a plug in her ear. That will be a hit! (…seriously, this happened. and we have the proof below).

Even if we may not totally get these genius concepts, we’re sure they’ll make you smile. And that’s the most important thing, isn’t it?
