Hi guys! Do you call this "poster arrangement fail" or "incorrect poster arrangement"?

Your answers will be highly appreciated.

I'd probably say it was a humorously misplaced ad. That whole "fail" thing is slang (short form of failure). I have nothing against slang but that one is something I'd expect to hear from someone younger than 30.

In my book, the display on the wall above the shelves is called "signage." So, in current slang (as trolley has pointed out) I would call this a "signage fail." On the other hand, since the stuff on the shelves is moveable, and the sign(age) above is less so, this could be called an assistant manager fail.
