FAIL|How the photo of a porn star ended up on a textbook cover

A publisher in Thailand is under fire after it was found out they used a photo of a Japanese adult film star as a picture cover for a schoolchildren’s textbook.

Apparently, Muang Thai Book Center has tried to design a book cover for Basic Mathematics that will pique the interest for the subject and the curiosity of the school children. So they sourced on the internet a photograph of an attractive bespectacled woman in suit with a chalkboard in the background and who looked like a teacher.

As can be seen from the photo below, the woman appears to be inside a classroom, perhaps dutifully performing her professional work in front of eager school kids in the noblest way possible.

Unbeknownst to the publisher, however, the woman in the photo was the Japanese porn actress Mana  Aoki and the shot was used for the promotion of her adult film “Costume Play Working Girl.”

An anonymous person (who refused to give his name for obvious reason) called the attention of the publisher about the mix-up after noticing he recognized the woman from somewhere else and remember it was from an adult film.

The book company immediately recalled all the books from the shelves after realizing their mistake, but not until more than 3,000 copies were already distributed in schools.

The publisher is now in hot water for the ridiculous blunder, but it is understood the cover has already been changed presumably to a more wholesome cover.

Other reports, although unverifiable, said the students themselves recognized the woman on the book cover. While others suggested perhaps it was a father of one of the kids who reported the slip-up. (Click here to read more)
