ERASING WOMEN? Saudi Ad Hilariously Fails at Photoshopping 'Indecent' Mother
Saudi Arabia is on a quest to prove to the world that no other country can outdo their crazy. Their latest stunt comes in the form of an advertisement sure to make you WTF hard. It didn't take long for the good folks of the Twittersphere to notice something strange was afoot...
Posted on Twitter by retail company SACO on their official page, the image features a family lounging in a swimming pool with a glaring difference from the original image - as pointed out by a Twitter user who posted [the] original image - there is an inflatable ball where there's supposed to be the woman. Other changes include pix-elated faces and blacked-out bodies of the man and two kids.
للمسابح حصة كبيرة ضمن عروضات ساكو! لا تفوتوها وقوموا بزيارة معارضنا #الكل_للكل https://t.co/YwaR99o792 https://t.co/qL16qJOmJr— SACO ساكو (@SACO ساكو) 1496572218.0
A quick glance at the ad shows a poorly photoshopped dad enjoying the pool with his blurry-faced kids and a beach ball. Normal enough. Perhaps they're wearing heavy, black shirts because they hate swimwear. Also, being baked by the sun is a fun family pastime.
Here's the original...
@LaughWithMedia @Saco_KSA وهاذي الأصلية اللي تم تشويها، بدلوا المرأة ببالون كارتون وعتموا على صدر الرجال والأطفال https://t.co/KufT8MUr7T— أحمد الزياني (@أحمد الزياني) 1496576504.0
Plot twist! That dad has pecs, and this isn't actually a family of half-breed beach balls. There's supposed to be a human mother in the picture.
And in case you were wondering, no, this isn't a snippet from a new viral article titled "BuzzFeed Presents: Saudi Artist Cleverly Re-Imagines Women as Pool Toys."
Rather than cover her arms like the rest of the family, she got the boot on account of her being a provocative WOMAN ENJOYING HERSELF.
This is common practice in the Middle East...
One user revealed that it was not an isolated occurrence:
@VishalManve12 @SilentRuins This happens a lot. In my translation class we talked about an Ikea catalogue where they had erased every woman.— It's Doru for you (@It's Doru for you) 1496675517.0
Aaaand there you have it. Solid evidence that Islamic nations hate women so much, they're erasing them from print. Feel free to add this to the list...

Notice something? It's the strange absence of feminist clucking. Any time you gals want to chime in on this one, we're all ears. The water is warm, and there are no women in it.
