In this case, the bend appears to be intentional

Was it pranksters?  Or was it a flaw in the construction?

These are the question bloggers are asking after pictures of an ironic advertisement for Apple, Inc.'s (AAPL) iPhone 6 has been captured in the Netherlands.  In the picture, the store's massive iPhone 6 poster/cutout is seen gently bent, in a manner that resembles internet posters who complained of the iPhone 6+ being susceptible to bending.  The timing couldn't be worse as the internet chimes in on "bendgate" and conflicting reports about the iPhone 6+'s tendency to bend out of shape in one's pocket.

The poster appears to be purposefully bent as part of the signage at Dutch carrier KPN (Koninklijke KPN N.V. (AMS:KPN)).

But the "lulz" were far from over.  German commenters noted that a massive billboard advertising the iPhone 6 was also curiously bent.  The billboard was located outside Berlin, Germany.

Sometimes, the truth is as strange as fiction.
