Beauty Campaign Parodies

This Male-Centric Parody of Dove's Real Beauty Campaign is a Hoot

— April 19, 2013 — Pop Culture
The Dove Real Beauty campaign has touched a lot of lives and encourages countless people that they really are more beautiful than they think. Of course, when something gets as popular and widespread as Dove's Real Beauty campaign, parodies are sure to follow. In this case, the parody by New Feelings Time is a hilarious malecentric version of the new Real Beauty campaign ad with a forensic artist.

The original ad featured a forensic artist drawing people based on their own descriptions, proving that we're all our own harshest critic. This version however, reminds men that they're not as beautiful as they think they are. The men all describe themselves as flawless studs, while some horrified girls point out every flaw in the subjects. One even describes one of the men as "something right out of Mordor."
