Grotesque Transformations

Since the original Dove Evolution video, there have been quite a few entertaining parodies. I find it intriguing that many of the parody clips draw out the idea of physical transformation in relation to race, gender and class. There is some poignant commentary here, disguised (as it so often is) by comedy.

I thought the one below was appropriately grotesque, not to mention in keeping with the time of year.


  1. Thanks for bringing these links together, I never went to look for the parodies. My favourite line:
    "Screw natural beauty I just want to look fabulous"!

  2. I love that line as well. Who doesn't want to look fabulous?
