QQ fan Photoshops or QQ advertising?

The image reproduced here is from an interesting page on the Tianya forum that contains a bunch of Chinese and Western movie posters that have been Photoshopped — 'PS' in Chinese Net slang — to look like advertisements for QQ, China's most popular instant messaging platform, operated by Tencent.

The page on the Tianya forum is here:: Portal also gets PS'd. The only question is: are these professional-looking Photoshops the work of zealous QQ fans, or were they produced by QQ's advertising agency?
