Oh god? Why is he driving PERPENDICULAR to traffic on the highway? Why isn't he looking at the road?! WHY IS HE OFFERING HIS PASSENGER A SIP FROM AN OPEN BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE?! Under what circumstances would this stock photo EVER be useful?

Why is he holding this old, shirtless man hostage?! Who would need to BUY this stock photo?

This has become a pretty infamous stock photo online - AS IT SHOULD BE. For some reason, someone gave what appears to be an ACTUAL GUN to a child and photographed them pointing it and crying (and let's face it - you would probably cry too if an adult handed you an actual handgun and took photos of you for some inexplicable stock photo money scheme).

Uh, kids doing lines of coke isn't THAT far-fetched, I guess - what really makes this one weird is the two in the background drinking neon-blue soda (or some kind of wine cooler). They're just having a good time and looking deep into one another's eyes while their other friend is casually snorting coke RIGHT NEXT TO THEM?

If you would have asked me whether the world needed a stock photo of a dad and baby despairingly smoking cigarettes while wearing all white in an all-white house, I would have probably answered "what the hell are you even talking about?"

The REAL messed up thing about this stock photo is that that appears to be an actual baby - meaning this person was making AN ACTUAL BABY CRY FOR THE PURPOSES OF A STOCK PHOTO. And the stock photo itself - a woman kneeling and chugging wine while holding a screaming infant - doesn't seem like it was worth upsetting a young child on purpose.

Uh, so....this woman clearly killed her husband right? That's the implication here? It's either that or she's planning to have sex with the dead body.

NO. WHY WOULD SOMEONE UPLOAD THIS TO A STOCK PHOTO SITE? WHO IS THE INTENDED MARKET FOR THIS?

This is weird - not only for it being two people in an awkward-looking life-or-death struggle, but because of how DISINTERESTED they both look.

This really seems like some kind of passive-aggressive husband who wanted to act out his homicidal fantasy under the guise of "we're just taking some stock photos, dear!"

The old woman's shrug and eye-roll is a pretty common thing for stock photo sites - but what's NOT usual is the old man in the background of the SAME PHOTO preparing to blow his brains out with a revolver. There's a lot going on here.
