A Truly Scary Hallow’een Video

I’m sensing a theme here and it’s depressing. I’ve got to find some new places to hang out on the interwebz.

We all understand that the images of (usually women)  we see in advertising (of anything and everything) are photoshopped, but this is a little 37 second reality check.

And just to drive the point home, Meilssa McCarthy, before and after poster art for her movie with Sandra Bullock, The Heat. (from THIS article in the Huff Post)

    That is scary! (And that photoshop doesn’t even look like Melissa McCarthy.) This is why plastic surgery is booming…

  2. People who do plastic surgery must have always wanted to be dolls. Jeez.

      I remember reading about a woman who’d undergone gazllions of surgeries to have her body look like Barbie’s. Which is anatomically impossible, no matter how many surgeries you have … very sad.

    The McCarthy one is just badly done.

    The other one is so over the top, I don’t think most photo spreads require that much PSing. But it’s a good example of just how much can be done with PS, and how it’s altering our sense of reality. But in real life I think it’s more subtle… which maybe is more insidious.

  4. That chick looked really fake to start with, but yeah, it is pretty scary.

    At least we know now that we don’t have to look like models anymore because Photoshop can make any of us into fake beauties!

  5. I hate how they take skinny people and make them skinnier, like you can never be skinny enough. How long until they’re just turned inside out?
