This woman was Photoshopped into a beach ball to make this Saudi advert more halal

Saudi Arabia’s ad standards differ a bit from the rest of the world’s.

The advert in question? A picture of an inflatable swimming pool, showing a family in the water in their swimwear.

However, Saudi regulations require that women be covered up.

So what did they do? They Photoshopped the woman into a beach ball.

The rest of the family were also given shirts and had their faces blurred out. Why blur out the faces? Who knows.
