Planet Hiltron is a blog dedicated to reverting the flawless images of celebrities that we are constantly bombarded with.

A kind of celebrity culture jamming which shows the true powers of Photoshop. Gave me a warm, fuzzy start to the day.

Implications - In a world that is increasingly bombarded with Photoshopped images of "perfect" celebrities, it is refreshing to see a site that debunks this mythological process. In addition to being a healthy reality check for society, it's also a pretty amusing site in and of itself. Needless to say, the folks over at Planet Hiltron definitely deserve credit for taking a lighthearted stab at deconstructing one of the media's most iconic techniques.
