Skin centers can be great if you’re looking to take good care of yourself while you’re suntanning, or just making sure that moles don’t get too out of control. But one particular skin center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam just made a pretty big mistake when it came to advertising its center, with a logo that’s all too familiar to video game fans.
A Reddit user by the name of gentlemansincebirth pointed out the logo, which was being used by the Medcare Skin Center, which uses the tagline “Our mission: your satisfaction.” But there’s a small problem. As you can see from the photo above, it’s using a logo that’s pretty much one that signifies the Umbrella Corporation from the Resident Evil franchise. Um, whoops.
Of course, jokes flew out like crazy across the Internet upon the discovery of the mistake, with many noting, “This is how the world ends,” since, you know, a skin center labeled after the Umbrella Corporation could very well indicate that zombies could be coming.
The company has since noted the error and took to Facebook with the following statement:
“Dear Clients and Partners of Medcare Skin Centre and others of concern;
In the last few days, we have received feedback from the media and community that our logo resembles that of a fictional corporation (Umbrella Corporation) in the movie and game Resident Evil. We are very surprised to receive such feedback from the community.
We are very sorry the situation has occurred and are working internally to find the best solution quickly. Our team is highly specialized in taking care of skin conditions for our clients and logo design is completely out of our specialty and was consulted and completed for us by a hired third-party. We understand the urgency of the situation; working to quickly to provide appropriate answer to our clients, partners, community and to the movie and game producers and copyright holders of the artwork. We hope for your understanding that the situation is not an intentional infringement of copyright by Medcare Skin Centre.
We will continually update our progress on the website and social media presence. Once again, we are very sorry and look forward to your understanding and support.”0comments
Geek Culture also posted a picture of the logo hanging outside of the Skin Center, which you can see below.
Needless to say, the hiring of Albert Wesker as the president of the Skin Centre may not be happening as smoothly as planned…
