Frank Lampard photoshopped into New York park ad

By | September 8, 2018

Ex-England star Frank Lampard has been superimposed onto a promotional image for a new state park in New York, sparking ridicule on social media.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo released pictures imagining what the Shirley Chisholm State Park will look like when it is complete.

One image shows Lampard, 40, taking a jog on a waterfront bridge in his old football training kit for New York City FC.

The original photo of the Derby County manager was taken in 2015 when he was on a jog in Central Park with a personal trainer during his spell playing in the city.

The image has also been flipped, resulting in the New York City FC crest appearing on the wrong side of the shirt.

It didn’t take very long for social media users to catch on, with many mocking the heavily-edited photos combining real people with generated backdrops.

One Twitter user wrote: “There’s some pretty epic Photoshop skills on show here. See-through people!”

Others were confused over why Lampard was chosen to promote the park.

Feroze Ali said: “As if they photoshopped Lampard in the 3rd pic to promote a park!?”

Another said: “I don’t quite understand why Frank Lampard is in the photo, nor do I know why there are transparent people on that beach”.

Sky News has contacted Mr Cuomo’s office for comment.

Lampard made 429 Premier League appearances during a 13-year spell at Chelsea, before moving on to Manchester City and then New York City FC.
