Le Monsieur Tout Nu is a photoshop fad that grew very quickly following the release of a promotional poster for the Montreux Jazz Festival.


On February 16, 2012, The Montreux Jazz Music Blog revealed the official promotional poster for the 46th season of the Montreux Jazz Festival[1]. The poster turned out to be a black-and-white photo of a nude man walking through a desert landscape by photographer Greg Gorman[2].


Apparently, the picture was thought to be somewhat ridiculous, because later that same day, the Facebook group “Le Monsieur Tout Nu”[3] (The Naked Man) was created, which was quickly followed by Tumblr blog “Lost naked man…”[4] Both were dedicated to displaying humorous altered versions of the original poster, either changing or replacing the nude model or placing him into other scenes, similar to the photoshop fads 9/11 Tourist Guy or perhaps more apropos, Naked Man in La Redoute Advertisement.
