5 Chinese Government Photoshop FAILS

November 2, 2019


On this episode of China Uncensored, China’s great and glorious Photoshop fails. Hi, welcome to China Uncensored, I’m your
host Chris Chappell. China has been photoshopping since before
it was cool. Before there was even photoshop actually. For example, why let a perfectly good historical
photo of Mao be ruined just because this one guy later got purged
from the Party? Delete! This happened a lot, actually. Back then they used airbrushing to, uh… edit the historical record. Unfortunately, advances in technology don’t necessarily make people better at
what they do. So here are 5 shocking examples of Chinese
photoshop fails. Number 5 Floating Officials You know, Chinese officials are busy. They don’t have time to, you know, visit places and do their jobs. That’s where Photoshop comes in. Here are some such hard-working officials inspecting a new highway in Sichuan. Yeah, no one was fooled by that. Netizens mocked the bad photoshop job by showing that they have better skills than
the government. The Guardian called it “one of the worst-doctored photographs in
internet history.” But I’m guessing no one at the Guardian
saw these next four. Number 4 Doctoring the elderly The story is, these officials were supposed
to be visiting the oldest woman in Ningguo city. Then the local government actually tried to
pass off this photo as real. But like this official’s legs, the government’s attempts to doctor the
photo are pretty transparent. Why is this old woman so tiny? How does anyone decide that this looks ok
to publish? Eventually officials admitted the image was
doctored. Shocking! That they admitted it, that is. In an official statement, they said the image was fake, but they did really visit the old woman. And other photos emerged showing that, at least at some point, they did. So why the fake? Well according to the statement, the photographer wasn’t able to take a picture
that could fit all the officials and the elderly woman. I mean you know how hard it is to take a photo of five people at the same
time? So they had to fake it. But that doesn’t explain why they had to
fake it so poorly… Number 3 Copy and Paste Africans A state-owned enterprise in Shandong province wanted to commemorate the beginning of their Angola Infrastructure Transformation Project. But rather than hold some kind of actual ceremony
and take a picture of it, they instead opted for the, “Photoshop random Africans in front of their
company banner.” Number 2 Parks and Re-creation So you may have noticed that a major part of being a local government official, is going out an inspecting things! And these guys may just be the perfect local government employees, at least according to Ron Swanson, He shows zero initiative. He’s not a team player. He’s never wanted to go that extra mile. Tom is exactly what I’m looking for in a government
employee.” And this photoshop job is just as incompetent
as the government ought to be, according to Ron. I guess no one in the government noticed that this guy’s whole body is as big as this
guy’s torso. Which is also as big as a tree. It’s about as good as my annual inspection
of Hollywood, New York, Birthday Town, and Space. And finally number 1 Well hey, that’s not too bad actually. It more or less looks like these officials
are actually there! Oh. These six officials in Shanxi are overseeing
the destruction of fake alcohol. And it’s true! That is definitely fake alcohol. So what do you think of the Chinese government’s
Photoshop fails? Do you think you could do better? Prove it! Download the photo in the Description below and show me your Photoshop skills. I’ll post the best ones on my Facebook page. Thanks for watching this episode of China
Uncensored. Once again, I’m Chris Chappell. See you
next time!

    Great Irony being? Everyone edited photos at the time. There are even photos of German War Crimes that are actually forgeries. Some, not saying all. I found one showing WWI Sturmtroopen using Mauser 98AZ Cavalry Carbines in a Trench edited to look like they were executing Polish Civilians some how magically in WWII despite being WWI equipment, while in a trench. It's considerably more common than you may imagine. Even Adolf Hitler had a lot of forgeries made, heck for some reason unknown still today Hitler had Goebbels removed from a number of photos. I've gotten to a point that if the photo is too damning to be true, odds are good it isn't really true definitely if you notice something fishy in the photo, like a whited out sky line/background, out of focus spectators, etc etc. I think everyone at that time created forgeries, or staged photos for the sake of propaganda. US isn't innocent of it either.

    An ex-uncle by marriage speaking about a well-known local resident in our small city, once said, after saying he drank many beers with the guy, "Tony would steal anything he could carry. And if he couldn't carry it, he'd steal a tractor to haul it off." That's how the CCP works.
