La Redoute France’s biggest mail-order fashion retailers has apologized for publishing a photo in which a naked man appears behind a group of children advertizing beachwear.
The nudist can clearly be seen strolling knee-deep in the sea while in the foreground four children run towards the camera in bright clothing.
The mistake was compounded by the fact that La Redoute provided a magnifying glass to allow people to get a closer look at the beachwear and thus any outstanding items in the beach scene.
In a tweet La Redoute said that it “apologizes for the photo published on its site and is doing what’s necessary to remove it”.
But the shot has gone viral on the internet and spawned a host of spoof montages.
