We covered some truly classic examples of stock photography recently, and it turns out that it isn’t only us that loves to poke fun at the weird and wonderful genre. Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has shown that she can do comedy as well as her more dramatic roles, making a hilariously deadpan video for Vanity Fair about her ‘true calling’ of creating the perfect stock photos.
Channeling her inner David Brent (boss in the superior UK version of The Office) the skit manages to gloriously mock stock photography, as well letting Emilia make fun of herself. “I’m taking a method approach,” she says about her foray into acting for the photos. “I mean Daniel Day-Lewis, he can learn something from me in this.”
Some people not familiar with the ‘mockumentary’ style have seen the satire fly straight over their heads and are completely confused by the randomness of the video. However we believe that if there ever comes a day when The Office gets a remake, Emilia should be a shoo-in for the lead role! Scroll down to check out the video for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
