Caution: risqué language and content

Yesterday’s news.com had a brief item about an advertising fail:
THE designer behind The Hunger Games latest poster might be looking for a new job after accidentally printing the C-word across actress Jennifer Lawrence’s face.  
A poster advertising the final film in the hugely popular movie franchise was released last week featuring Lawrence’s face with the words “100 days until The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two”. 
However due to the unfortunate font layout a vulgar four-letter expletive is clearly visible. 
The “unt” from “until” is placed inside a “0” which was formatted to look like a “C” making the word “C***” clearly visible.  
Entertainment company Lionsgate swiftly deleted the poster from The Hunger Games official Twitter account, but not before fans spotted the error. 

Here is the offending poster:

As the old saying goes . . . 


Here are some more advertising and placement fails . . .
