7 Stock Photos We Didn’t Know What to Do With

As marketers, we are continuously trying to find the right use of imagery that helps capture and conveys a message or story. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.

But every so often we come across some truly bizarre imagery that we just don’t know what to do with except by sharing it around the office.

Here are a few of our favorites!

1. Searching for real estate stock photos:

“The fusilli is strong with you, but you are not a gnocchi yet.”

2. Searching for summer fun stock photos:

“Remember that dinner scene from Lady and the Tramp?”
“Oh yeah! I love that movie. It’s so romantic!”
“Yeah, well here’s a hot dog. Don’t break eye contact.”

3. Searching for office/work stock photos:

“Type first, ask questions later.”

4. Searching for insurance stock photos:

“Oh my god, Gary, at least warn me next time before you take a selfie! I haven’t even flossed today!”

5. Searching for business lawyer stock photos:

“Failure to pay your invoice and we will summon our most powerful business mage who will immediately turn your family, home, and vehicle into papercraft.”

6. Searching for financial stock photos:

“This is Simon, our newest intern. We have purposefully given him calculators that produce wrong results. We are now taking bets to see how long he can last without going insane. The previous intern lasted two days.”

7. Searching for recruiting photos:

“How long has she been like that?”
“I don’t know. Her interview was hours ago.”
“Where did she put the chair?”
“Somewhere between the 7th and 8th dimension.”
“She’s hired.”
