The TIME magazine made laugh readers a cover of the August issue

The western press and Internet users frankly laugh today at fresh issue of the known magazine Time. After all on its cover barefoot Palmer Lucky, the founder of the Oculus company and the founder of a font of virtual reality of Oculus Rift flaunts. All right, if Palmer represented in manner more or less suitable for so solid edition, but designers of Time decided to make «a feint ears» and photographed the 22-year-old billionaire in absolutely ridiculous pose, having placed the turned-out image on a background of a tropical beach.

And here as though everything is clear: Palmer Lucky – well-known гик the IT industries. It comes barefooted to meetings with investors, wears quite shabby clothes and in every possible way shows to people around the free-thinking and eccentricity. Nevertheless readers of Time apprehended a cover is very inconsistent. Someone simply hemmed to itself(himself) under a nose, and someone threw up an eyebrow in complete misunderstanding of the events. To place so ridiculous photo on an edition cover with almost century history – very strange course which does not do to honor the magazine, the Oculus company.

From other party, this joke generated such sensation on the Internet that it is possible to include it for quite successful and absolutely free advertizing campaign of a font of Rift. About it even the people far from the IT industry now will precisely start talking. Whether people will want to buy a gadget created flying on beach barefoot giky is already other question. And thousands users of the Network rushed to draw leading western mass media of "phototoad" with Palmer Lucky’s who has been cut out directly from a cover of Time participation. Some people even started to joke that so idiotic cover is quite capable to postpone an exit of a font of Oculus Rift for 12 months. In order that you understood, about what there is a speech, I will attach some such images to a material.

The name of article including interview to Palmer Lucky, says «Why the virtual reality will change our world». What here still you will tell?
