Distorted View of Beauty

I just came across this incredible video on youtube. It really points out just how we have ended up having such a distorted view of beauty these days. It shows what can be done with one average(ish) looking woman, lots of makeup, time and digital effects.



It kind of reminds me of all the fuss during the Lebanese-Israeli conflict about doctored photos, I don't really hear anything about how advertising is intellectually dishonest.

That's because advertising isn't intellectually dishonest. We all have a message, it just then depends on how that message gets voiced and then interpretated.

What is sick is that "dove" does the reverse advertising thing pretending to be 'intellectually honest' when in fact all they want to do is make money. Fuck them & their dishonesty.
