The Fotoshop by Adobe Spoof Pokes Fun at Today's Beauty Efforts

Created by Jesse Rosten, this Fotoshop by Adobé spoof video pokes fun at the lengths to which consumers will go to achieve what society deems beautiful.

Rosten is a Northern California-based filmmaker who was inspired to create the Fotoshop by Adobé video after watching a late-night infomercial promoting some beauty product. Says Rosten, "The commercial showed before and after portraits, that to my eye, looked like the same photo just photoshopped. I laughed to myself. Then I made this video." He goes on to add that the Fotoshop by Adobé video isn't real, but "neither are society's standards of beauty."

It's true that modern society's beauty standards are pretty unrealistic. Case in point: all of the gorgeous models and celebs who have been subject to Photoshop blunders and all of the runway models who have suffered from health issues (or have died) from trying to attain extreme thinness.
