Stock Photography As Comedy

Stock photography can be weird. There, I said it. Sometimes we see these uber-specific stock photos and wonder who in their right mind thought this was something that needed to be shot? Turns out the folks at CollegeHumor have also noted this trend and created a video with actor Patrick Wilson satirizing the ridiculousness of this stock photography trend. It’s good for a quick laugh if you’ve got a few minutes to spare. You can watch Wilson portray a beekeeper giving a bear a piggy back ride in the forest–and other stupidly specific stock photo scenarios.
