This Levitating Death Star Speaker Has Some Awesomely Terrible Product Photos


Okay, this hovering StarWars Death Star Bluetooth speaker is pretty fantastic, providing you with about six hours of streaming along with the novelty of Star Wars, levitation and glow-in-the-dark effects.

But that’s not the whole story. Oh no, not in the least. Some of these Photoshopped product photos are pretty bloody spectacular. Check them out below.


Look at that image. Really take it in. Consider, for a moment, that the product is facing the same angle in each image. That the product is noticeably crisper than the relatively low-quality stock photos it’s been dropped into. But my favorite part, other than the fact that it is displayed here in three vastly different sizes (which, let’s be honest, is pretty amusing in and of itself) is the fact that it isn’t even being reflected on the slightly glossy wooden desk it’s resting upon.

On its own, this image is pretty funny. As an image provided by the manufacturer for the product’s Amazon page, it’s (“clucking” – Ed.) hilarious.

Here’s another one:


This one is arguably even better. The bottom photo has been taken at an ever-so-slightly jaunty angle, and yet the product remains in a strictly horizontal orientation. It’s amazing, though no less amazing than the fact that the speaker has been photographed from two different sides and yet looks exactly the same regardless.

Look, I don’t want to shatter your illusions here. Maybe you’re the sort of person who takes the things they see on the Internet at face value, and Gawd bless ya if you do. But – but! – I highly suspect these images have been Photoshopped. In fact, I’d go one further and state that the product probably wasn’t even in the original photos to begin with. I know, it’s scandalous. Why would a person lie on the Internet?

Anyway, buy the speaker, because why not? Oh wait, it’s $219.99 on Amazon right now. That’s kind of expensive for a novelty speaker. However, you’ll help to keep an apparently very, very junior marketing person in their apparently unsupervised job.
