A few hours ago, Slayer revealed the cover art for their new album, Repentless. At the time, we thought it was likely that some Christians would get offended, but a whole new sect of people have taken notice of the album art… Photoshoppers.
Photoshoppers were reminded of the recent news of a Spanish woman who tried to "touch up" a 19th-century painting of Jesus and the results were very bad. People started noticing a similarity and then the jokes started coming…

…and one brave soul went so far as to actually Photoshop the cover art…
I hope Slayer realize this is the best thing that could possibly happen for their record. Any publicity is good publicity, especially viral publicity.
Repentless comes out September 11th.
