The Fotoshop Beauty Regimen: No Self-Respect Needed [bitrebels.com]

Everyone knows that Photoshop distorts reality, but to what extent? We are so used to seeing Photoshopped images everywhere we look these days that does it really even matter anymore? Hasn’t it become a standard in the beauty and marketing industries that we’ve come to expect? To me, the effects of Photoshop aren’t any more detrimental to our self-image than all the Barbie dolls in the store having big boobs and an itty-bitty waist.

As a matter of fact, sometimes Photoshopped images are funny, and they make you wonder what the heck the designer was thinking. Jesse Rosten thought this same thing recently when he was watching a late night infomercial for beauty products with before and after photos which might as well have been labeled “before Photoshop” and “after Photoshop.

He was inspired by the silliness of our society sometimes, and he made this video with the caption “This commercial isn’t real, and neither are society’s standards of beauty.” It’s a spoof on Photoshop that will definitely put a smile on your face. Like this video says, “Why rely on a healthy body image and self-respect when you can have Fotoshop.
