Remember that rather gauche Sports Illustrated South Africa fake-cover ad campaign? The one with Der Führer getting the ol' SI jinx dropped on his head? Well, the magazine now claims it didn't like the ads, either.

Without our knowledge or consent, these storyboards were entered into an industry contest and published on that contest's website.
