VIDEO: Ellen Hilariously Spoofs Target's Latest Swimsuit Photoshop Fail

April 3, 2014 by Julia Welling

Target basically did plastic surgery via photoshop on juniors model Tanya Marie Keller a couple of weeks back, and now Ellen DeGeneres has something to say about it. She invited Tanya to come on her show and talk about the unrealistic body images that photoshop creates for young girls. But instead of taking a defensive approach and hating on the store like everyone else, Ellen and Tanya went the comedic route. They wanted to prove that Target “DID NOT photoshop” their ads. So, Tanya came out wearing two abnormally long prosthetic arms, mimicking the way her limbs look in the ad. The poised model stayed in character the whole time using the arms to shake hands, drink from a coffee mug, and give hugs. She even offered to show viewers that the “square block between her legs” is “real.” You have to watch for yourself to see their hilarious (and positive!) take on such a horrible mess.

Rather than just pointing out that the image is fake, Ellen physically proved it. Sometimes, girls see ads, like Target’s, and even though they know that they’re majorly photoshopped, they still strive to look like the models anyway, which is extremely unhealthy and can be very dangerous. Ellen’s take shows young girls that it is physically impossible to look like the models they see in swimwear ads. So next time you’re feeling down about your “bikini body,” remember that nobody is perfect and you look great just the way you are! GO ELLEN!
