This.... is too funny.

I mean come on, this was no 'error' as Microsoft puts it... it was 100% intentional...
You can't just swap a persons head out a picture without a little intentional photo editing.

Anyway, check it out for yourself. Hilarity at its best... oh the world we live in...

SEATTLE, Washington (CNN) -- Software giant Microsoft apologized Wednesday for the apparent bad judgment that led to the head of a black model being swapped for that of a white model in an online advertisement.

The ad -- which showed three business people, one Asian, one white and one black -- was altered on Microsoft's Web site for Poland to place the head of a white man on a black man's body.

"We apologized, fixed the error and we are looking into how it happened," said Lou Gellos, a Microsoft spokesman.

He said that because the company was still reviewing how the swap occurred he could not comment further.

lol... so rediculous
