Design errors….

The image shown above is indeed a promotional poster for Starbucks new TazoCitrus drinks. The posters were displayed on walls of about 3,000 Starbucks throughout the USA and Canada beginning in April 2002, until an inquiry from a New York Post reporter who’s been contacted by someone upset that the posters imaginary was too reminiscent of the terror attacks on NY twin towers – Starbucks pulled the material from their stores on June 7.

Coca-Cola – ‘Feel the curves’

This poster was released in the mid 80’s and prompted a total recall of all posters because of the picture painted in the ice-cubes at bottom right corner. The graphic artist who designed the picture put this in as a joke, and it went through unnoticed until someone spotted it on the back of a coke truck. The artist lost his job and was sued, and all promotional material had to be recalled and destroyed. Very rare and hard to get hold of – released in South Australia in mid 80’s.
