While we're all about brilliant design at Creative Bloq, we'll always have time for a clanger – and here's a design fail that hits all the wrong notes. A jewellery ad has surfaced on social media featuring an oboe being played, er, not quite correctly. 

The ad, designed to showcase a collection of gleaming rings on the musician's (and we use that word lightly) fingers, shows the oboe being held aloft – as opposed to the traditional downward angle – with the hands crossing at a frankly bizarre angle. While many of the best print adverts are sure to elicit a double-take, we're not sure it's deliberate here.
