It’s one of those problems that you had no idea existed until you actually have to do it yourself. How do you put up a picture of that wall mirror you want to sell, without awkwardly including parts of yourself in the reflection?

A viral Twitter thread is going around right now, with pictures of people selling mirrors (or trying to), and it’s becoming the unintentionally hilarious hit of the year. Some people have clearly gone to great lengths to hide; others apparently don’t give a hoot. Others still see it as a chance for a little self-promotion.

How do the pros picture mirrors for sale? Probably with the aid of Photoshop I would imagine. But for now let’s glory in the funny ads of the amateur, in this list compiled by Bored Panda. Scroll down below to check it out for yourself, and please, share your tips on how to deal with this conundrum!

i'd heard a theory that 'headless' bodies on movie posters made that body seem sexier... this... this is not the case.
