Mind the step…

Have you seen this print ad?  It’s for a well-known ‘value’ furniture store who probably thought it’d be really cute to advertise its stair carpet and underlay service with a sleeping toddler, presumably to show you just how snug it would be. 

Unfortunately, it only looks as if the child has slipped down the stairs and ended up badly injured.  Everyone I’ve shown it to agrees, so how did they fail to spot this?  Didn’t want to upset the photographer, maybe?

And apart from anything else, the carpet’s horrible.  It looks like one of those revolting early-80s bath/toilet rug sets, which only seemed to come in various shades of Cagney and Lacey set design.  Vile.
