GQ mocks Vanity Fair's Photoshop job with new cover

Adjust Comment Print

GQ's version stars Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and Sarah Silverman on the cover, with the mag promising readers that it's their "Best Comedy Issue Ever!"

Not only is McKinnon contorted in a odd position, but upon closer inspection, there are a number of unattached arms and legs mixed in with the women.

The comedians have yet to comment on the magazine cover, though Rae did retweet GQ's promotion of the issue.

For their 2018 comedy issue, the folks over at GQ chose to poke fun at Vanity Fair's fiasco on their own cover featuring Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and Sarah Silverman.

Last January, Vanity Fair put out an extremely extra cover, which was extremely extra with regard to Reese Witherspoon and Oprah's Winfrey's limbs. They continue, saying they "deeply regret that the results violated GQ's rigorous standards of editorial excellence and the laws of nature". "As I know you accept my 3d hand", she tweeted.

'Horrific' school bus crash in New Jersey
A dump truck sits near the scene after a collision with a school bus in Mount Olive, N.J., Thursday, May 17, 2018. Greenbaum said the first word he got about the crash included "entrapment and possible ejections".

VF played it down with humor at the time, tweeting, "While we would have loved the exclusive on @RWitherspoon's three legs, unfortunately it's just the lining of her dress".

"I accept your 3d leg".

Needless to say the internet had a field day with the GQ cover, as wags, pundits and blue checks all tried to get in on the fun. They will now be conducting "a thorough internal audit" to ensure this embarrassment does not happen again.

"To demonstrate our commitment to transparency, we will release the results of the review, quietly, in 17 months, on Medium", the publication hilariously noted.

Earlier this year, Vanity Fair released their annual Hollywood issue. "Until then, we'll be ignoring our mentions", they added.
