adobeHere’s an over-the top “commercial” by Jesse Rosten for Fotoshop by Adobé — the beauty secret of celebrity cover models. Just slather it on and let the “pro-pixel intensifying fauxtanical hydro-jargon microbead extract” do its work. Only, not really.

Seems like an obvious idea, but it’s pretty hilariously executed. The video does a nifty job encorporating actual instances of misleading, self-esteem poisoning Photoshop wizzardy. High point for subtle social commentary: “…even adjust your race!” Could have done away with “My skin feels like plastic!” as the artifice is theatrical enough. Still, solid little fake-out, Jesse.
