The best worst stock photos we’ve stumbled upon

4 min read


As marketers, we sift through stock photos on a daily basis - you can’t create bespoke images for every content piece, and a lot of stock photos are perfect for the brief.

But other times, we stumble upon truly giggle-worthy gold that makes you wonder what the heck they were thinking.

Here are our favourite picks.

A search for “hidden costs”...

A search for “security”...

The latest cyber-threat: teleportation!

A search for ‘wellbeing’...

I’m not sure what this would ever be used for. But, I love it.

A search for ‘multitasking’...

So many questions. Why the cardboard box? Why the yellow pantsuit? Why can’t a grown woman spell ‘contract’ correctly?

A search for ‘paperwork’...

This just reminds me of a far less glamorous version of ‘The Indian in the Cupboard’.

A search for ‘frustrated’...

Obviously someone consulting Dr. Google about the steam blowing out of his ears.

A search for ‘office hero’...

Even heroes have to do their taxes, guys.

A search for ‘job interview’...

So much shade from the girl in the yellow.

A search for ‘bad management’...

I have no words. That poor man looks resigned to his fate.
