Are Gumtree guilty of picture size shenanigans?
This morning’s offer at Gumtree Daily Deals looks like a bit of a cracker – an A3-sized canvas print for only £9.99, reduced from £47. Why, one of those would look fantastic when hung, let’s say, on the wall above a double bed. Helpfully, Gumtree, and offer-provider Grangeprint have included a preview of what it might look like.
Oh yes, that’s a mighty print indeed – and at only a penny less than a tenner, it looks like a spectacular enhancement to any bedroom. But wait – what’s that? There seems to be a disclaimer in the picture. It says ‘this picture is not representative of the deal size’. Hmmm, that’s a shame.
Fortunately for yourselves, using the average double bed width of 54 inches and the A3 width of 16.5 inches, along with some cack-handed Photoshopped redecoration, we’re able to give you more of an indicator of what you’ll actually get.
Slightly less impressive? Um, just a bit. Of course, it isn't the first time we've commented on something like this - hello Groupon!
EDIT: As pointed out in the comments by Mr Crocus, maybe it's a really tiny bed. So we've put a tiny Morecambe and Wise in it. We're not sure if this helps or proves anything.
It doesn't, does it?
