For today's lesson of non-necessity, I will explain the fat finger illusion which can be seen in Ikea's in-your-face, that'll-teach-you-who's-boss, don't-question-us THAT'S WHY ads.
Upon approaching the ad, you will realise that they used a model with hideously fat fingers for their ads.
Why did they use fat-fingered models? Do they have some sort of weird fetish? What kind of sick fetish is it?? Is it hygienic? Could it potentially cause a rectal infection?
Of course not, silly.
The model isn't fat fingered, it's an ILLUSION!
Take a few steps back and you'll realise the fat finger is actually not so fat.
See? Not so fat.
The reason I was standing so close in the first place was because the font they used in the ad was a tad too small.
So, Ikea is kind of trapped between two choices :
a) increase the font size and waste printing ink and have ordinary fingers
b) maintain font size but instill weird fetishes in patrons minds
0r I just need glasses.
