Actress Naomi Watts (left) portrays the late Princess of Wales in the upcoming “Diana” film
What is being called an “advertising placement error” for the the upcoming “Diana” film about the late Princess of Wales, starring Naomi Watts, caused a bit of a stir in Paris over the weekend.
A poster promoting the film was placed at the Place de l’Alma — very close to the entrance to the tunnel where Princess Diana was killed in that fatal 1997 car crash.
News of the poster’s positioning drew an immediate outcry in the British press and caused a big stir on social media.
Not surprisingly, the JCDecaux advertising agency quickly pulled them down. A spokeswoman explained the unfortunate incident was due to the “Diana” campaign being a “part of a global network that include several hundred, even thousands of posters,” placed by workers unaware of the sensitivity of the Paris location.
