Prime Minister’s bizarre Photoshop fail

Prime Minister Scott Morrison seems to have made his image a priority in recent months, appearing in surf branded caps and the like, but the latest attempt to change his look is the most bizarre and unnecessary yet.

A hawk-eyed observer of his official website (reported by news.com.au to be a Labor staffer) spotted this Photoshop fail on an otherwise lovely family portrait, and the internet has, of course, been loving it.

Morrison appeared alongside wife Jenny and daughters Lily and Abbey sitting on the lawn but his shoes look, well, a little odd.

The bright white tennis-style shoes are so wrong he’s even wearing a left footed shoe on his right foot.

That sparked these funny tweets…

Further digging revealed the original version of the photo, which shows what the Prime Minister’s ‘spin doctors’ wanted to get rid of.


It was a pair of slightly daggier sneakers but surely they would’ve looked better than a dodgy Photoshop change to shoes that look like they had been bleached for a month.

Mr Morrison responded to the fuss on Twitter this morning, posting a photo of the original sneakers, and weirdly joking that he would have preferred it if they had Photoshopped more hair onto his legs (okaaayyyy).

News.com.au reported that the Prime Minister’s office has asked for the doctored photo to be replaced with the original.
