*7 million people can’t be wrong. That’s how many have watched the amazing transformation of 80 years being taken off a woman in a viral nanosecond.
Thanks to the amazing work of the talented folks at Photoshop Surgeon, a centenarian – that’s a 100-year-old person – has been transformed back to the image of her 20-year-old self.
The YouTube account specializes in extreme makeovers, but this is the most popular so far – being watched more than 7 million times.
The responses from those who have watched vary. With many people getting weepy as they are reminded of times (or people) long past and long gone.
“Some people say that the video made them cry, I think because it brings up memories of lost loved ones or conflicted feelings about ageing that all of us end up experiencing,” says the unnamed Photoshop Surgeon tom Buzzfeed.
Others were a bit more harsh. “There are people who seem to take offence at the video saying that she was beautiful already and that I should not have done it at all.”
One user commented: “You took the memories away from her. All the things, that she were going through. That’s sad.”
But the artist defended the work, calling it a video that was created to show the artistry of Photoshop.
The six-minute video was posted online in July – you can view it directly below.
