Would You See Any Of These Movies If The Posters Looked Like This?

American movies often make their way across the globe. Posters and promotional material must be adapted for the countries where the movies play. Usually, while the language on the posters change, the images tend to stay the same.

When the material can’t be imported, some places get creative and do their own marketing. One such place is Ghana, where local artists (with varying levels of training and ability) step in to fill in the promotional gaps. The results are…well, they’re something.

Some of them are just poor renditions of the official posters. Some are so out there, we can’t even begin to understand what they were going for. But these were all approved. And despite spanning nearly 40 years of films, the style is oddly consistent.

1.) Slither, (2006)

Yeah, what can you do when a pensive worm monster stabs you in the brain? Sheesh. At least the dog, along with its eerily human eyes, seems okay with everything.

2.) Enter the Dragon (1973)

Who could forget Bruce Lee’s famous line from this martial arts classic: “Oh no, you di’n’t, girlfraaaand!”

3.) Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974 – 2013)

Well, there’s clearly a lot of limb-chopping in whatever movie from the Chainsaw franchise this is supposed to represent. So much so that even the chainsaw-wielding lunatic doesn’t have legs. Oops.

4.) Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (1985)

This poster is even more ridiculous than the fact that this made-for-TV movie was even created in the first place. Someone explain that bipedal lizard thing in the bottom left, because that is not on the original poster.

5.) The Road Warrior (1981)

I don’t know what movie this is, but it’s not The Road Warrior. None of this happens in The Road Warrior.

6.) Sleepy Hollow (1999)

Does…does the Headless Horseman have breasts?

7.) Hercules (1983)

In which Exasperated Dad Hercules tells Hercules, Jr. to please not play with the mini-hydra.

8.) Mission: Impossible (1996)

Tom? Tom Cruise? Is that you?

9.) Mission: Impossible II (2000)

Tom? What did they do to you, Tom??

10.) Ghost Ship (2002)

In which the boat eats people. Giant people.

11.) Nightmare on Elm Street (1984 – 2010)

This was for the lesser-known Nightmare movie, where a concerned Freddy Krueger lets his friend know that there’s a pickaxe in his face.

12.) The Mummy (1999)

There’s a lot going on here, but I think Imhotep needs a bra.

13.) The Mummy Returns (?) (2001)

I think this is a poster for the sequel to The Mummy, based on the half-man, half-scorpion the artist seemed to be going for. I couldn’t even begin to tell you what’s going on here, though.

14.) The Terminator

The top image of Schwarzenegger is fairly faithful to the official poster, but for some reason, this artist decided to attempt another image on the bottom. The results were not so great.

15.) Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Where is that blue hand coming from? Why is the “o” in “Terminator” a little heart? What happened here?

16.) Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)

In which the newest model Terminator, this one rather jowly, attends a funeral.

17.) Conan the Destroyer (1984)

I know Grace Jones is androgynous, but come on.

18.) Planet Terror (2007)

There is so much wrong with this I don’t even know where to begin. That anatomy? The fact that this is not a character in the movie? If only someone had made another version.

19.) Planet Terror (2007)

Oh, okay, that’s so much better.

20.) Hellboy (2004)

That’s not Hellboy. I have no idea who this lounging robot is, but it’s no one in the movie.

21.) Alien (1979)

That is not how you hold a knife. Also, it seems the artist decided to merge the alien and human characters into these purple, oblong-headed terrors.

22.) 300 (2007)

Jeez, Leonidas. You might want to get that lazy eye checked out before you head into battle.

23.) Evil Dead 2 (1987)

This seems like it should be the Army of Darkness poster, but I don’t think it really matters at this point.

24.) The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

You know, the James Bond Movie where Bond teams up with a giant red fish and drives a car that defies physics. Also note that “Me” is a correction, meaning this poster originally read “The Spy Who Love You.”

25.) Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)

In this version of the classic vampire tale, Dracula deflates his victims. It seems that when at a loss, the people who made these posters just filled in the empty spaces with explosions and planets. Explosions and planets sell, right?

26.) The Matrix (1999)

In this reality, Laurence Fishburne is a ginger.

27.) Cujo (1983)

Someone put a springer spaniel’s head on a cow’s body, and Mom’s head appears to have a stem.

28.) Catwoman (2004)

I mean, there’s not much you can do to make this movie any worse. But that tongue is really grossing me out.

29.) Bloodsport II: The Next Kumite (1996)

This is why you proofread. Make your own jokes about blood spots and white pants. I’m done.

30.) Your guess is as good as mine.

You mean you’ve never seen the classic The Fierce Ghost Eats Human Region?

There’s a part of me that wants to see the movies these posters are advertising. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see James Bond team up with a giant fish?

Here Are The 26 Most Cringeworthy Ways People Have Proposed. I Hope She Said No To #5.

Giving the love of your life a perfect marriage proposal is tricky business. Not only do you want your significant other to say yes, but you want the moment to be absolutely perfect and absolutely them. Every person who is about to propose has played the moment over and over in their heads after hours of planning… Except for these people. Instead of planning out their proposal in a thoughtful and special way, it seems that they just winged it. Saying yes to an awkward and cringeworthy like this is definitely a bad idea.

1.) What a delicious proposal.

2.) Don’t trust your friends to do it for you.

3.) This is a good way to cause a wreck, not begin a marriage.

4.) … okay, this is almost impressive.

5.) NO NO NO NO NO.

6.) I hope this is a joke.

7.) … sigh.

8.) This could have been SO GOOD.

9.) How does she say yes? Order popcorn chicken?

10.) It’s kind of worth it for her heart attack.

11.) I don’t think she’ll appreciate this less-than-flattering photo.

12.) His face will be SO red if she says no.

13.) I think I’d prefer a ring.

14.) Is there an emoji for “disappointed and depressed?”

15.) Yes, pizza, I WILL marry you.

16.) BRB, let me pee before I answer.

17.) Trashy is the new classy.

18.) You just failed so hard, Duke fan.

19.) Cut your hair and put on a shirt. Then, maybe.

20.) Rocks… they say what we’re too afraid to.

21.) I wonder how many women said no to this interesting offer.

22.) The effort is nice, but the execution is more than a little strange.

23.) I take that back. THIS is strange.

24.) Ohhhhh duuuddddeeee. No.

25.) Mild… just like your romance.

26.) This was almost perfect, until it wasn’t.

Hopefully these people found a way to have a “happily ever after” ending (even if their marriage began by sticking a ring into a chicken sandwich).

30 Of The Most Awesome, Hilarious, And Absolutely Horrible Pumpkin Carvings

After visiting the pumpkin patch with your family, there’s only one real way to put that freshly picked winter squash to good use: pumpkin carving.

Halloween is the perfect time for artists to let their creativity flags fly. When they’re not creating incredible costumes, they’re putting their carving skills to the test by making some pretty epic jack-o’-lanterns. These men and women create things out of their gourds that I could only dream of.

On the other end of the spectrum, though, are the artistically challenged. Admittedly, I belong in this group. While these guys give it their all to create some kick-ass carved pumpkins, in most cases these creators probably shouldn’t be trusted with a knife.

So to celebrate this Halloween’s pumpkin carving highs and lows, here are 30 of the best and worst pumpkin carving projects on the internet.

1. So that’s what happens when your face starts drooping because of old age.

2. If this were a competition, you’d definitely get a participation trophy.

3. Twenty points for Ravenclaw!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.defineSlot(‘/37886402/VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’, [300, 250], ‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF_58155d19b88f0’).addService(googletag.pubads()) googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_MB”, “VN_”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_SC”, “VN_ORGN”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_TS”, “TS_D”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_AT”, “VN_ORGN_PG_D_REV_1.0_ASYNC_DEFAULT”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_CC”, “VN_ORGN_D_UNK_118301_A”); googletag.pubads().setTargeting(“NOVA_PG”, “1”); googletag.enableServices(); googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF_58155d19b88f0’); });

4. When your haunted house turns out looking more like an owl with a Christmas tree.

5. This pumpkin comes with a bit of country twang.

6. No amount of duct tape could fix this pumpkin travesty.

7. Painting your pumpkin isn’t going to cover up the fact that it’s an epic fail.

8. If it ain’t baroque, don’t fix it.

9. Hopefully E.T. is making collect calls.

10. I wonder what it was supposed to be.

11. Ziggy Stardust returned to earth in the form of this epic jack-o’-lantern.

12. She realized her carving skills weren’t up to par, so she just stopped mid cut.

13. Why waste the innards when you can use them to decorate your pumpkin.

14. Me after a night of heavy drinking.

15. He was on the right track until he forgot to give this cat eyes.

16. Not sure what’s worse — the carving job or the makeup.

17. Don’t do drugs kids.

18. This castle certainly isn’t fit for a princess.

19. They really captured his complexion to a T.

20. I could only dream of being this talented.

21. You had one job and you failed miserably.

22. I can only imagine how scary this thing looks with the lights off.

23. If at first you don’t succeed, you should probably just stop trying.

24. This jack-o’-lantern talks a bit too much.

25. Eye-opening.

26. What’s that hissing sound?

27. This pumpkin’s got his eyes on you.

28. The detail here is marvelous.

29. This carver wasn’t messing around when it came to his Gremlins-inspired design.

30. While this isn’t technically a jack-o-lantern, this dad earns some creativity points in my book.

I’d share my own jack-o’-lanterns from this year, but you’d probably all just laugh at me.

These People Are Having Really Bad Days. Oh, Boy… I Thought Mine Was Bad.

If you’re having a bad day, there’s little you can do to fix it. If the terrible time you’re having isn’t as awful as what you see below, though, perhaps it’s time to stop complaining. After all, you weren’t just rammed by a particularly fierce sheep.

These people are having such bad days, they have seemingly gone out of their way to make your day seem like a total success by comparison. Really, they’re that bad.

1.) Oh, public transportation.

2.) Beware of sheep.

3.) GeronimOUCH.

4.) Coma me bro.

5.) When you see it…

6.) Is that a water balloon or a watermelon?

7.) Now THAT hurts.

8.) Faster than taking the elevator.

9.) This why you don’t flirt and drive.

10.) I hope they at least got their souvenir photo for free.

You Probably Do This Every Day And You’re Just Making Yourself Look Silly.

It’s embarrassing being a human. We do stupid things all the time (at least I do). It’s common to get caught up in doing something we wish people didn’t see, things we wish we could hide from the public and things we wish would have never happened. Once you’re mortified, it sticks with you for life.

Unfortunately, these things do happen and they happen a LOT. You have no idea how many people are actually clumsy or just plain dumb. This list is here to remind you that, hey, what you’re doing is just embarrassing. SO STOP IT.

1.) Getting Caught Sniffing Your Arm Pit.

You had to check to see if it was you, and now everyone will think it was.

2.) Running Into A Spiderweb And Freaking Out.

These invisible menaces will make even the most poised person look like a lunatic once they begin swatting at their faces.

3.) Being Afraid Of A Shadow

Something catches the corner of your eye, what is it? A rat? A bug? I’M RUNNING! Oh wait…it was just a shadow.

4.) Pushing An Elevator Button That Has Already Been Pushed.

“Oh you already pushed it? Well, I’m going to push it again because I don’t trust you, even though it is lit.”

5.) Having Spaghetti Dangling From Your Mouth.

No matter how much you think you have it, you don’t and now you are forced to do that weird slurp-up thing.

6.) Freaking Out Around A Bee

No one else will see the bee most likely, and when you tell them a bee made you freak out, they will probably laugh at you. Deep down though, they know they’d do the same thing.

7.) Having Your Skirt Blow Up

Not everyone’s “Marilyn moment” is as sexy as Marilyn’s.

8.) Wearing A Shirt With A Stain On It

You pick out a shirt in the morning, walk down the street and think you’re looking good and then you look down and notice you have a giant BBQ sauce stain.

9.) Farting In Yoga

They tell you it’s natural and that everyone does it, but you know you’ll never believe them.

10.) Doing The Pee-Pee Dance

It is a weird tick, but we just have to do it. Does anyone even know if it helps relieve the pain of having to pee?

11.) Getting Caught Singing In The Shower

You think you’re alone and then you get out of the shower and your roommate tells you that you had a glorious rendition of “The Dark Side Of The Moon” from the Mulan soundtrack. *Gulp*

12.) Using A Machine At The Gym Wrong

Oh the muscle-heads get a kick out of seeing you do this one, right? You’d beat them up but first you need to get strong and to get strong you need to FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE THIS DAMN MACHINE!

13.) Eating Something That Is Too Hot

You think to yourself, “This chicken noodle soup can’t be THAT hot.” Then BAM! Your tongue is ablaze with chickeny wrath.

14.) Singing The Wrong Lyrics

That’s why karaoke has the words on the screen for you. You always thought the words to “Dirty Deeds” by AC/DC said something about a “Thunder Jeep.”

15.) Tripping Up The Stairs

If you fall down the stairs, people are concerned for your well-being. If you fall up the stairs, people think you are stupid.

16.) Walking Into A Glass Door

Nothing like the thud of thick glass doors on your face to make you feel inadequate in ways you never dreamed of.

17.) Doing The Fart Shuffle

You know what I’m talking about. When you have a little bit of fart left between your cheeks and you have to get it out, you begin to find creative ways to walk or stretch those legs so you can get that fart bubble to burst.

I this post can best be summed up by this image right here. Never forget these words you are about to see.

Amazingly Stupid Construction Ideas That No One Seemed to Object To

I can totally do construction! Anyone can! You just, like, nail stuff together, no big deal. … right?

That’s at least what these people thought, and the results are hilariously terrible. We’re showcasing some of their, ah, projects for your amusement. We just hope that no one got hurt as a result, although we do kind of hope that at someone got at least a very stern reprimand for these…and maybe some suggestions on a new career path. 

1.) Every nine years, the magical doorway opens and leads to a fantastical land.

2.) Enjoy the ocean scenery with a nice cold metal bar under your legs. Relaxing!

3.) This idea failed not once, but four times, but they had a plan and they were sticking to it, dangit.

4.) This is what the city really thinks of cyclists.

5.) And this is what the city really thinks of kids.

6.) I should have measured before redoing the bathroom? Don’t be silly. What do you mean this defeats the purpose of a bathroom door?

7.) I said STAY OUT OF MY ROOM.

8.) Look, just because you’re in a wheelchair doesn’t mean you don’t want to be extreme.

9.) Extreme, I said.

10.) Studies show that frequent sitting breaks relieve stress.

11.) We’re all gonna be real close friends after this.

12.) REAL CLOSE FRIENDS. And if you have gastrointestinal distress, you know which toilet to use.

13.) I foresee no issues here.

14.) Just keeping you on your toes. Pay attention!

15.) No, see this way, you can catch the water AND plug in your hairdryer while saving space.

16.) The “you’re fired” door.

17.) Heh heh, no one will ever see this stealthy security system back here.

18.) You’re just too short. It’s your fault.

19.) And you’re just too big. Clearly your fault as well.

20.) In this technological age, we like to keep our customers close to nature. Like really close. Also to an I-beam.

21.) I told you. There’s NOTHING in that closet. Those scratches and moans you hear are just the house settling.

22.) Safety violation? Pffffft.

23.) Well, it’s reduced running on the stairways, but it’s increased confusion and bottlenecking on the stairways.

24.) It serves THREE purposes when you think about it!

25.) Space saving!

26.) The porch is going to be added later! Some people just don’t have foresight, jeez.

27.) Better have good aim.

28.) Oh, that’s the super secret party balcony so no one inside can see us.

29.) Each Christmas, the Millers took down the curtains to share their beautiful Season’s Greetings bricks to the neighbors.

30.) Oh, it’s not so far. Just try to get a running start.

 (Images via Izismile)

They say “measure twice, cut once.” The people responsible for these projects? They obviously have never heard of that phrase.

27 Ridiculous People Who Will Make You Lose All Faith In Humanity

1. Take that! Oh wait…

2. HOLE!

3. Nothing good comes from laser pointers.

5. It turns out this skateboard fights dirty.

6. Whooooooooops!

7. Guess what? Animals bite!

8. How was this a good idea?

9. Oh…my god.

10. Skateboarding is easy. But walking?

11. You’re going to pay for that, right?

12. Someone’s too cool for school…

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_5663d025a72fb”, auid: “537251604” });

13. Walk it off, bro.

14. Chicago Bears fans have one weakness — poles.

15. Please…please be able to walk.

16. Well, that’s unfortunate.

17. How did you imagine this turning out?

18. These two have WAY too much free time…

19. Karma — it really is real!

20. Oh, my…ribs…OUCH!

21. El Smacko!

22. Brake…brake…BRAAAAKE!

23. FYI…he was ok. Whoa.

24. Here’s why delivery via skateboard isn’t a great idea.

25. What on Earth were you trying to do?!

26. Well, that was a stupid idea. HAHA.

27. Honestly, did you expect a different ending?

The world may not be a better place with these people…but at least it certainly is funnier.
