Bad, Bad Online Shopping Trend

Here's an online shopping trend I would like to see disappear: the use of the celebrity sniper shot to highlight the particular article of clothing for sale.


How does this snapshot of Courtney Cox in what may be a short-sleeved T-shirt help us decide we have to have it? You see nothing. And, it's the only photo supplied for the shirt. Gee, wonder why it's on super sale?

More and more sites are picking up on this practice. Just don't like it.
