Vikings have fun with FOX's Photoshop gone wrong

Print

The production folks at FOX were recently presented with a quandary.

They wanted to promote an upcoming game featuring the undefeated Vikings, but the only Minnesota quarterback on file in the FOX NFL Robot was Teddy Bridgewater, the passer sent to injured reserve with a knee injury in August. In a dash of creative inspiration, they improvised, using Photoshop to place Bradford's head upon Bridgewater's body.

It looked bad and stupid. But it would do in a pinch ... unless people noticed.

People noticed.

Team social media departments live for this type of tomfoolery, and sure enough, the Vikings' official Twitter account took advantage of this golden opportunity with a double-barrelled shot of snark.
