For the past 49 years, Sports Illustrated has brought you some of the most iconic photos in swimsuit history – from Cheryl Tiegs’ mesh bathing suit to Kate Upton’s white jacket. There have also been a handful of photos that make you stop what you’re doing and laugh out loud  This 1995 photo of Ingrid Seynhaeve taken in Costa Rica by legendary SI photographer Walter Iooss Jr. is one such photo. While Ingrid does her best to look sexy, there’s only so much one can do while being stared at by a giant painting of a parrot. Don’t worry – The photos below more than make up for the lack of sexiness.
