Anything for the shot.

my parents would have done this to me as a child.
Totally awesome. I wish I had thought of this first. And as a mom of 3 young kids, I can assert with confidence that it is a real baby, not a doll. You can tell a baby bjorn is what is actually taped to the window. And, yes, I would assume that mom is standing out of the frame right next to the baby, as I would be. Lighten up people, this pic is hilarious!
Haha. I would either think the mom is either standing next to the baby or sitting on the floor right below the baby. I think that’s hilarious as well… quite good )
HI all! I captured the photo, lightened it up and enlarged it. It really does appear to be a real baby. Daylight is coming through the cartilidge in it’s ears. The duct tape is going over the baby’s chest and under it’s arms, affixing it to the window. In my opinion, this is not a doll. Could be wrong, but… I doubt it.
OMG! I have tears coming down my face from laughing so hard. I swear the baby is a doll, but maybe not. Very clever family picture! When my daughter was in elementary school the kids hit a goal for a school fundraiser, and the principal had himself duct taped to the cafeteria wall near the ceiling (the custodian erected a scaffold to get him up there, the PTA members did the taping, and then the scaffold was removed.) Amazing how strong duct tape is!
Ha! I know that is a real baby. In fifth grade (a few years ago) our math teacher told us a story about how she got permission from a student’s mother to put duck tape on his mouth because he talked a lot. That’s when we had the idea to get permission from a boy in my class’ parents to do the same. Instead we duck taped him to the wall. It was hilarious!
It’s been two (2) days since I’ve seen this photo and I’m still laughing about it. Absolutely Brilliant!
It’s been three (3) months since your comment and I still think you’re being a bit dramatic.
you mad bro?
The only thing missing from this picture is the family pet. I guess they ran out of windows.
Or duct tape!
The only thing funnier than the picture are the comments. I mean, there’s some comedy gold in here and people are so stupid that they’re taking it seriously. As for this being an album cover, or the baby being a doll or whatever, I don’t know or care to spend the time to confirm. However, I do have 2 things to point out.
1. They do make creepily realistic dolls of infants. In fact, one company recently made a special edition series of the Harry Potter chars as infants, and the Voldemort one is ESPECIALLY creepy with the reptile eyes. The rest of the crew looks dead on realistic. Would be tempting to buy one just to pull stunts like this and freak people out.
2. The world is full of stupid people, and a lot of them have been commenting on this picture. Lighten up, give them a good laugh, and if you know one give them a good smack because stupidity should be painful.
I heart this picture!
This is stunningly creative way to make a family portrait. Respect to the photog who pulled this off
I need a new office chair because I just pee’d in this one when I saw this picture
This picture made me laugh so hard, I was crying! The kids in the windows was a great idea except when they came to the last window and a baby! This is about my favorite- even if it was faked.
haha very nice picture have fun )
You can clearly see the baby is not taped up by the arms, perhaps a snuggly or jolly jumper sack, hahahahaha.
This photo is super-funny. I laugh every single time I see it. LOVE IT!
I know it’s probably faked but I can’t stop laughing. Saw this pic hours ago and I’m still chuckling.
i just laughed so hard i cried. hahahahahaha
HA-larious! Whether doll, real kiddo, or alien absolutely cracked me up!
Oh for christ sakes….get a sense of humor people!!!
Why are you all assuming the window sill is only a foot or two off the floor? I think it is eight feet from the floor. And on the floor are a whole pile of poison tipped spikes, guarded by rattlesnakes, underfed pit bull dogs, and deathworms. And the parents have gone, by themsleves, to Disneyworld for a week, and are monitoring their children’s welfare from this HD video camera. This picture is therefore sick, and anybody who has laughed at it should go to jail for a long, long time.
Dude – they make medication to help people like you.
Actually, it’s very funny, especially if you have a sense of humor and realize that he’s mocking everyone pontificating about this picture. And No. They don’t make medication for that.
I get the tone, but I also think you’re not funny.
OH MY GOSH! You’re my new favorite person in the world!
Way funnier than the picture
Tim- I think we might be twins separated at birth! My name is even “Kim” which RHYMES with Tim! Seriously, we share a SICK sense of humor!
I must belong in jail since I found this to be a perfect caption to the picture! LOL!
Sarcasm is difficult for some to distinguish in type.
No, you’re MY new favorite person. They probably lob things at the baby too.
You should write books…
Funniest pic I’ve seen! Laughing so hard couldn’t answer ringing phone!!
Brilliant!!! I’m sure the parent in standing right where the baby is looking ready to catch him/her at the slightest second that the tape starts to release…. IF it does.
The baby is a doll – it’s OK to laugh.
that just can not be right ToT
Geez!!! Did anyone think that MAYBE just MAYBE Mom was off to the side out of the frame of the picture just in case baby started to wiggle loose? And Dad was probably the one taking the picture. They managed to raise 4 kids out of toddler-hood so far. They must be doing something right.
This picture is hilarious!
possibly the baby is looking off to the side to
My first thought was it must have really been a windy windy day..
This would’ve been a very creative photo if not for the ridiculous duct tape! Ok, besides the moral & ethical implications of duct-taping a toddler’s arms to a large window, which by the way, make it look like he’s holding a couple of machine guns. They should have used double-sided tape and taped his shirt to the glass instead.
I LOVE IT! And I believe the baby is taped under the arms or it would have injured him as he hung there.
If you look at the left foot (the baby’s left, not yours), you will see the photoshop error. The baby is missing his/her big toe!
As a photographer, I disagree. In fact, It COULD be photoshop, but the way I see it the tape is actually under the babies arms and across his chest. Which is why his arms are looking like they are raised up and not being used to support his body weight, thank God cause that would probably cause injury.
IF it IS photoshop I would say that it was done with someone holding the baby while still being taped up and then another photograph to place the background. That is the way I would have done it anyway.
Call me wind because I am aboslutely blown away.
I’m going to have to say that is not a real baby, it is a doll… in fact all of the children are not real… all dolls! Why am I the only one that can see that? LMAO
I love the “More Bars in More Places” Comment!
All “Dolls”?? Are you really that stupid?
Look out! It’s a pixie…. with a 2×4…. and he’s ANGRY!!!!!
Omg, I almost choked on a cookie from reading your comment. Haha!
It is also a doll, specially made for the band to use in this picture for their album cover. I doubt anybody outside of movie industries would really be able to find a doll as realistic as ones they use or make special for situations like these. (:
Even if any of this was false, which it’s not, the tape would be strong and reliable enough to securly hold up a baby, even more than seatbelts in vehicles. Leaving the baby unharmed. I also highly doubt a baby could possible have the ability to wriggle out of the tape or slip out of the adhesive bonds. Think about it..
It is completely not real. It was made with the intent to get people to say exactly what all of you are saying. “How could you dare do this to a bay?” “You people are sick!” were the comments the photographer had hoped to recieve. This is for an album cover. It is very funny, the idea of someone being dumb enough to tape a baby to a window, just for a family photo. Hence the purpose of the photo. Relax.
OH MY GOD! I now need therapy… deep, intensive, and immediate therapy. What the @#$^ were they thinking?! There are at least four older children involved who need to come to that babies rescue. The fifth child must have been behind the camera? I’m dying here! Baahahahahhaaa!!
cant stop laughing, i love this pic and this website hahah
oh liz and all your comments are so funny haha
Apparently I’m the only one that can tell that this is a doll.
Really? That’s a baby. No dolls are that big or with such chunky legs…at least not ANY dolls that I’ve ever seen and with 2 girls I’ve seen a lot of dolls.
yeah, um no. def not a doll. look at the proportions compared to the other kids, the shape of the limbs, the ear. totally a real baby.
this is pretty hilarious though. they could’ve at least put his feet on the ground! lolz.
I think the baby is in the photo in remembrance of a lost child. It’s an angel flying away. (and it’s probably a doll)
all time favorite
i think ya’ll are taking it a bit tooo far. its cutee(: and im pretty sure the kidd was okkk. chill out people
not a fan of this one! recently a mother was arrested and in the news for doing just this.
The woman who was arrested used duct tape to abuse her child. She bound her childs limbs together for long periods for punishment. This is not the same thing.
No joke , not even remotly the same thing, this is an adorable picture, they most likly taped the babys outfit to the window an duct tape is strong enough to hold a baby up like that, if I had a place I could take my 10, 8 and 6mth old an take a picture like that I would. Now I would do a much better job of trying to hide the tape behind the baby or make it look more decent but you get the idea.
Nevermind, I just zoomed into the picture. The baby is in some type of device or clothing that is taped to the window…Seriously people? You would risk your child for a picture?
“I am sorry officer, I didn’t ever take into consideration the dangers of taping my infant child to the window! I never once thought that if he fell from the window such a serious injury or death could occur! I mean HE is only TAPED to GLASS that is supporting his BODY WEIGHT, above a HARD and SHARP edged window sill, that sits at least ONE FOOT from the FLOOR. At the time it seemed like such a “clever” idea!”
um… the window is not going to tip over and fall out bc of a baby. he only weighs 15-20 lbs, and windows are made to take 100s of lbs of pressure.
oh ok, and nothing else could have possibly happened, like say the baby slipped out and fell? you people are sick.
it can’t slip out because of the (security-)tape
hate to pop your bubble but duct tape might be great but it CAN slip and has been known to do so at the most inconvenient of times…and what mother doesnt know that where a child is concerned it only takes one second (less in reality) of inattention for something bad to happen. my grandmother stepped outside for a few seconds…an accident resulted and the reulut was i died for 4 minutes. remember murphy’s law. personally i would never risk it with the life of a child.
you died for 4 minutes? is that why you’re brain-dead? FACT babies die everyday. FACT freaking out doesn’t save them. FACT my sister did far worse things to me as a child, considering that that child has 4 older siblings she probably has experienced worse herself.
We can’t see the floor or the mom. Maybe the mom’s just lying there, ready to catch her duct-taped child.
… you must be a new mom. word of advice relax, stress is a killer.
im confused: the mom in the pic is abviously not a new mom. the oldest one looks like– 14.
Oh wow people need to chill out! More bars comment lmao *can’t breath*!! Lmao
LOL Lola, not the mom in this pic…the person that left the ridiculous comment.
Ive always said the best babysitting tool is duct tape..LOLOL…very creative idea for a photo
Hahahahahaha LOOOOOOOOOOVE IT. SO clever, creative, & fun… for ALL. Prize winning picture… ENTER IT!
I actually think this is awesome and I think my parents would have done this to me as a child.
I love this!!! Super cute!
More bars in more places…
BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! **can’t… breathe…**
LOL!! I’m crying – great comment.
I can think of at least 5 better ways to have done that…
OMG, as a mom, it is so wrong that I just laughed out loud at that comment
omg that picture is funny cant believe the baby is ductaped to the window hahaha
The comments are more funny than the picture
What are they doing to the baby? D: Poor kid.
OMG … for real????
the poor baby…”what are you doing?”
“oh,I’m just hanging out…!”
HANGING OUT:) now thats funny!!!! lol!!!
I was a bit slow–at first I seriously thought that the baby was holding up two guns–a giant pistol and a rifle. That would have been epic.
I saw EXACTLY the same thing!
Totally thought it was an evil flying monkey. that would be BA!
Saw the flying monkey too!! Trying to find rest of Oz in pic then saw tape on kiddo. Hope they aren’t a hairy family.
yea, it looks like hes in a gorilla pose.
Haha! I totally thought the baby was kawabunga-ing it!!!! Cut pic!!
Album cover? “The Sil-houettes”
