Tesco shoppers scared by 'sinister' pizza man on shop window advert

Mirror logo Mirror 12/09/2017 Joshua Barrie

© Getty Pizza usually helps people have a nice time. Cheese on top of a carbohydrate probably has something to do with it.

Tesco was probably trying to remind its customers that the above is true with a recent advert depicting an al fresco luncheon.

In the jovial scene, a man and woman are sharing a pizza with a couple of others. One of them is just about out of shot, but definitely there, and his left hand is grabbing a slice of the action.

From afar, it looks as though the group is having a fabulous lunch. It's sunny, they're in the garden. The mood is good and the pizza floppy and generously topped. Is that some ham? Could be ham. We hope it is. Prosciutto, maybe. 

But what's this? If you look a little closer, an altogether more sinister picture begins to emerge.

Yes, the curly haired man, possibly the host, has a striking expression on his face. He looks a little... devious. And the fact was noticed by British film director Nick Murphy.

BAFTA-winning Nick has a keen eye for finer detail. He shared his observation on Twitter. Others agree.

Obviously, it's clear Tesco didn't intend any of this and we're sure the pizza is absolutely delicious.
