True, it looks like it. Her thumb is bent inward.

My vote is just considering the reference market of the adv: USA.
I think that fprobably or an american "Tres chic" really is written "Trey sheek" and the girl is really chic in a chic environment.
For the rest of the world, who care.

2001 Clos du Bois outdoor ad campaign. Same idea. "CLO -DU- BWAH" Tag was "Unpretentious Wine." Sorry. Seen it. Keep trying adguys.

1. No thumb on right hand, Glad to see they are employing the "hand"icapped in advertising now.
2. REALLY ugly, uncomfortable looking bathingsuit
3. "Tray Sheek?" Really? Are they trying to be cute or do they realy think we are that stupid?

Guest's picture

It's a PS hack job - the creative people should be fired for 1 - Doing this and 2 - allowing it to be done.

Her right hand is a hack left-hand cut and paste and her right leg is obviously cut from somewhere else - you can see where it joins her pelvis.... looks painful.

PS - thought the 'what's the poolboy hanging his hose on?" question was hilarious.

Guest's picture

seriously how do none of you guys get the "tray sheek" thing?
it says right in the corner "unpretentiously luxurious", it's a bit of a joke
to be honest i think that (thumb aside) it's a good advert

Using an ultra thin model for a casino hotel is not really a great idea. Surely he rich and famous are frequenters here but still looks like they serve no food here. I know its a bad joke but fits the ad properly
