Nick Richardson lives in Worcestershire, England and it seems that his face has been emblazoned on a pizza box that A LOT of people are seeing. So many people are seeing it that his is getting a lot of text messages and emails from friends and family asking him if he posed for the picture.
Ya, that isn’t the case at all. As a matter of fact, Nick is complaining because he is convinced that the company took a picture of him eating their pizza and decided to use it for their advertising without his consent, or any compensation.
As you would expect, the pizza company vehemently denies that this is the case. The picture that is being used on their pizza boxes is one of 5 designs that they use and the one Nick is complaining about is just a happenstance. Not so, says Nick. He has made a side by side comparison of the picture and himself eating pizza to prove it is him.
Nick isn’t asking for financial damages, but he is asking for credit that it is, in fact him. The problem is now that they cannot produce the original picture to prove that it isn’t him.
What do you think? Is it Nick, or not?
