The Fantastic Four Enter Italian Politics

The Italian political party PD has decided to start using a modified picture from Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer in their political campaign. A graphic featuring Nichi Vendola as Mr. Fantastic, Pier Luigi Bersani as The Thing, Laura Puppato as Invisible Woman, Matteo Renzi as The Human Torch, and Bruno Tabacci as The Silver Surfer. The image adorns their website. On November 25th, the party is holding its primary elections.

The Italian media reacted asking if the party website had been hacked. The image is so amateurish with Photoshop work that I’d think was a joke if presented to me. The fact this is an Italian political party makes me feel like I need to look into Italian politics more. Is this normal, because you wouldn’t get away with this level of crap here in the United States.
