Human trafficking is an increasing problem; people are willing to resort to almost anything in order to escape to another country. And sometimes their ingenious ways of smuggling are not so genius.

These examples of human trafficking fails include the amazing 'Man-disguised-as-seat,' or the not so smart 'Using-the-car-floor-as-a-hidden-compartment.' Whatever the reasons, there is no excuse for something as stupid as this.

Implications - The issues of the world are too often left in the dark for people living outside of poverty, human trafficking, or other issues. Bringing these issues to light will benefit companies or charitable organizations as they show corporate social responsibility and will appear more human in the eyes of consumers.
