Opinel Knives: Chopped profile pictures

Bleublancrouge created a stunt on Facebook for Opinel knives. Using an app called Picscatter, various images (carrot, cucumber, sausage and leek) were “chopped” and Facebook user’s were then tagged. The effect was a large chopped image across the top of the user’s profile page. These images were then be published on the Opinel Canada fan page, with instructions on how their friends could also chop up fresh new profiles pictures.

actually, it was done last year and people were invited to update their own profile picture.
So it's not a company tagging people... :)

Not sure if anyone but the employees of Opinel would want a vegetable smack on their facebook page.
