Subliminal sexual imagery has long been used by advertisers to inadvertently lure in and entice unsuspecting dolts who don't know any better. The practice has gone on since the dawn of print advertising with a number of popular artists attempting to see what they can and can't get away with. From the phallic shape of Joe Camel's nose to this recent advert for Tangled, where you can see the word "sex" if you look closely at Rapunzel's hair as it wraps around Flynn Rider's body.
Today, Warner Home Video is releasing the kid-friendly Scooby Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster Blu-ray and DVD. To help promote the release, they have sent along a batch of new photos from this live action adaptation of the popular Hanna-Barbara cartoon. At our very first glance, we were shocked to find what looks to be a giant penis underneath Velma's (Hayley Kiyoko) armpit, resting on her stomach, and aiming towards her breasts. Upon closer inspection, when we pulled back on the photo, we discovered that it was just Daphne's (Kate Melton)'s knee. Is this the unfortunate placement of an unknowing actor? Or did the people behind choosing and orchestrating this particular photo choice know exactly what they were doing? Take a look at the pic below and decide for yourself.
You have to admit; it's a great way to get word out on this direct-to-DVD sequel. Once people hear about the penis knee, their awareness of this particular project is going to increase tenfold.
