In lieu of a typical music video, Hungarian singer Csemer Bolgarka, also known as 'Boggie,' has released a viral Photoshopped video to accompany her latest single 'Parfum.'

Boggie bravely volunteers to be Photoshopped in real-time for the duration of the video. She begins with a fresh, makeup-free face, but she's gradually poked, prodded and double-clicked until she practically becomes a different person, singing all the while.

The re-toucher works with a generous hand to clear up spots and imperfections, lighten dark circles, smooth fly-away hairs, brighten her skin tone, slim her neck and adjust her eye shape and color. The end result is a powerful commentary on how inauthentic the medias perception of beauty is. Judging by the amount of post-production that takes place before Boggie is camera-ready, it's no wonder society is inundated with insecurities about the way we look.
