Private School Internationale (or why the Germans are better than the Turks)

In Germany, they don't fuck around as to what the selling point of a video is. Just about the only thing anybody associates with the Private School movie is the topless horseback riding scene, so they put 'em (excuse me...put the scene) right on the cover.

In Turkey, on the other hand, they put a woman who doesn't appear anywhere in the movie (in Daisy Dukes yet) on the poster.

Not only that, but they take a woman who does appear in the movie and photoshop her till...well, might I remind you, this is what Phoebe Cates looked like in the early '80s:

Compare that definition of nubility to the divorced-from-all-humanity photo on this poster.
