Photoshop Transformation Music Video


Photoshop is a great tool, without a doubt, but this French music video highlights the moral implications of its use in society these days. Everyone knows that models and celebrities are ‘Photoshopped’ on the front of magazine covers but I didn’t realise the extent of the tools power. This can be seen in this music video where some French singer warbles on as her face is retouched and transformed from perfectly pretty to a Mila Kunis look-a-like.

I’ve no idea what she is singing about; she could be singing “My face looks so much better Photoshopped” “I worship the power of Adobe” but judging by the tone of the video, I think it’s a statement about how unrealistic and unattainable Photoshop perfection is.

Note: This is not Adobe Photoshop being used in this video. I use the term as readers will generally know of the verb ‘to Photoshop’.

What A Croc!

That's not a log!

It was reported on Friday that a couple of Frenchmen chilling out on the coast of France had spotted a crocodile cruising the waters of the English Channel. Beaches were closed and the local authorities and army mounted a search for the, long-way from home, beast. It was thought it must have escaped from a local zoo at first as it would be impossible for the cold-blooded creature to have swum all the way from its warmer home. How exciting! For a moment the English Channel became our very own Lake Placid. It would become the ‘Channel Crocodile’, a deadly fiend which would pick off lone fisherman, growing larger and stronger, moving on to devouring whole cross-channel ferries. The stuff of nightmares! 

However, the chances of this were dashed pretty abruptly yesterday when it was revealed the crocodile was in fact…a bit of driftwood. Not quite the same dramatic finale I was concocting in my mind. Glad no one got hurt though of course, driftwood can be deadly!
