Neckermann, Thomas Cook’s sister company operating in mainland Europe, recently released a marketing poster promoting 2 for 1 holiday deals.

But a picture for the campaign appears rather X-rated at first glance.

Due to the unfortunate placement of a man’s hand and leg, he appears to be pleasuring a woman sat on a sun lounger.

Another added: ‘It made me do a double take so they’re doing something right.’
