Ad-inspired merchandise store, The Incumbent Agency, turns cliché stock photos into hilariously relatable depictions of life in an agency.

Just by adding funny captions to the photos, the agency easily turns ordinary (sometimes even awkward) stock photos into something absolutely brilliant. Take a look at some of our favorites below.

For more, check out The Incumbent Agency on Instagram. You can buy The Incumbent Agency's products (t-shirts, mugs, totes, prints, caps) on their online shop.

I guess it's like putting a woman in a gorgeous gown when they need a French woman.

Reminds me of the episode of Buffy, in which a girl received a message nothing but "all the best" in her pre-summer-vacation card then became invisible.
