This video from the 'Try Guys' of Buzzfeed has men explain their ideal body image and the struggles they've faced in comparing themselves to unrealistic standards.
The video opens up with the men describing their insecurities growing up and explaining the body that they wish they had, citing stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, John Krasinski, Channing Tatum and Justin Bieber. Looking to obtain the physique of professional athletes and heartthrob entertainers, the Try Guys start by contouring their bodies with the help of a make-up artist.
Later on, Photoshop is used to show the men exactly what they would look like with their ideal body. Once they are given their new bodies however, the Try Guys realize that these expectations are not realistic for the everyday person -- and nor should they be. They come out with a new appreciation for their individuality and get a better understanding of just how doctored the photos of celebrities often are.
