Great moments in Photoshopped advertising - Boing Boing: "Tiny kids hired as models for inflatable swimming pool photo."

This reminds me of a nifty piece of trivia: in the final scene of "Casablanca" Rick is seen walking out of an airplane hanger where mechanics are working on a plane. But since the movie was shot entirely on a sound set, the plane is actually a scaled-down model and the workers are midgets. You can look it up.

Special Viking Pundit note: Des! Did you get my last email? I think your Earthlink address is defunct. Thinking of you and good trivia.

I am advised by my son that the use of midgets was common practice, especially if you needed a large crowd in middle distance.
