Does she have six fingers or am I crazy?

Noticed this when I was reading a mag and this image was in one page. Now the finger number 5 can't be her thumb unless she was some kind of mutant and it's on the wrong side of the lollypop.

It's pretty mindboggling that "errors" like this can happen and go all the way through print in projects as colossal as GTAIV. Feel free to post other marketing fuck-ups and such.

Now that you mention it, the pinky looks like its wrapping and merging with the ring finger

It is. Just google the image and it was in the magazines too. EDIT: I can't fucking believe nobody noticed this before :lol

Fixed (as in lollipop position)? But amazingly, she still doesn't look right.

They've never counted as fingers. No one cares though so everyone calls them fingers.

What has been seen cannot be unseen.

By the way, to those who have played the game - is this chick even a character in it or just some fancy incidental artwork? Been watching my flatmate play GTAIV on and off and no sign of her six-fingered sexiness yet.

PS3 Special Edition not so sexy anymore ;D
The '5th' finger in this occludes the white stick, where as the OP's post has the stick occluding the finger.

But the shading is still present in the box art picture.

Itxaka's fix has the most correct looking picture in there, even if it is a hasty job.

You have forever ruined the image of lollipop girl for me. Now no matter how many fingers are actually there I will always see six.
So I have finally changed the world.

Wow I never noticed that before.

I've always ended up in a trance when looking at the lollipop, imagining the bliss my penis would be going through in it's place.

Now that we're at it just look at how fat her middlefinger is!

What? That would mean it's as long as her index finger. And how the hell would she be holding the lolly??
