YouTube user fero061982, a seemingly random account name, posted a single video three days ago, documenting one of the recently viral photo-a-day challenge videos. Entitled, 'One Photo a Day in the Worst Year of My Life,' the images go from smiling and happy self-portraits to morose and bruised mugshots.

This Croatian PSA shows a realistic portrayal of how a woman's life can be ruined by an abusive partner, sucking the life out of her eyes and the joy from her face, as the bruising gets progressively worse over time. Utilizing the trending photo-a-day challenge method is drawing lots of attention as viewers, expecting a feel-good video, are instead transfixed by the gruesome transformation happening before them.
