'Scooby-Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster' Photo Contains Hidden Sexual Content?

The unfortunate placement of a knee turns a kid-friendly pic into an X rated optical illusion.

Subliminal sexual imagery has long been used by advertisers to inadvertently lure in and entice unsuspecting dolts who don't know any better. The practice has gone on since the dawn of print advertising with a number of popular artists attempting to see what they can and can't get away with. From the phallic shape of Joe Camel's nose to this recent advert for Tangled, where you can see the word "sex" if you look closely at Rapunzel's hair as it wraps around Flynn Rider's body.

Sex in advertising

Today, Warner Home Video is releasing the kid-friendly Scooby Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster Blu-ray and DVD. To help promote the release, they have sent along a batch of new photos from this live action adaptation of the popular Hanna-Barbara cartoon. At our very first glance, we were shocked to find what looks to be a giant penis underneath Velma's (Hayley Kiyoko) armpit, resting on her stomach, and aiming towards her breasts. Upon closer inspection, when we pulled back on the photo, we discovered that it was just Daphne's (Kate Melton)'s knee. Is this the unfortunate placement of an unknowing actor? Or did the people behind choosing and orchestrating this particular photo choice know exactly what they were doing? Take a look at the pic below and decide for yourself.

You have to admit; it's a great way to get word out on this direct-to-DVD sequel. Once people hear about the penis knee, their awareness of this particular project is going to increase tenfold.

    Thats because Orange sucks. Everything the dude posts blows. How is that a penis? I initially thought Alan Orange was a dude, but clearly hes a chick who has never seen male genitalia (or hes a eunuch that was cut too far at birth and again, has never seen male genitalia). Fact is, Alan sucks. Always has. Ha, I love that hes getting verbally railed for this. Oi Oi!

    I can see the sex spelled in the Tangled one, but no way does that look like or remind me of a penis. Although her knee does look strange.

    This article isn't as lame as the Firefly one, but pretty close. Just when you almost redeemed yourself completely with the MovieWeb Awards article :P

    I really didn't think that it looked like a penis. And as for the Tangled picture up top, well I heard that supposedly its supposed to be SFX not SEX because of the Special Effects Team in Disney working on the projects.

    Thought Scooby-Doo was owned by Warner, not Disney. That knee is pretty sexy but it does not look like a penis at all...unless you look at it from a distance I suppose.

    I'm thinking that the people who are "discovering" hidden penises on Disney advertising and stills are virgin women. Any man can tell you that that looks nothing like a penis. It looks like a knee. This is just ridiculous. The Tangled ad however, is awesome. Disney has been known to put subliminal things like racy words ("sex" on numerous occasions) in their advertising. They do it on purpose, and from a Graphic Designer's opinion, I think its genius (and funny).

    i see nothing subliminal or obvious in that picture at all. even if i hadn't heard this story and looked at that pic, i wouldn't have thought anything was awry. it looks like a bunch of people looking at a computer. nothing more. they're just trying to drum up 'buzz' for this lame ass movie. thats it.
