"Ad agencies go to disturbing lengths to create the perfect image. Guess we're no different." Victors&Spoils takes the "regular woman to ad-agency image" video (info) a (seasonal) step further.

Actually, the recent season finale for South Park is very related.

Someone shoot me.

The problem I had with the original video was that I thought the woman was more attractive before they started turning her into plastic. So it just seemed like a shitty job at PS. Problem I have with turning her into Santa is it seems like this was more of an exercise in Illustrator. Also, I thought they were turning her into a sea lion at first.

Not sure about a sea lion, but once they add the glasses there's a definite "Jerry Garcia, ca. 1985" vibe to the image. And 1985 was hardly Jerry's best year.
