  • Celebrities get hilariously photoshopped as everyday Indonesians – Mashable SE Asia

 September 20

Photoshop is a wonderful tool to hone one’s artistic creativity.

Though it isn’t such an easy tool to use for beginners, the results that you can get out of a pair of skilled hands and a one-of-a-kind sense of imagination are stunning. It gives you the power to breathe new life into existing photos, turning them from regular images into refined works of art.

And at other times, these editing tools fall in the hands of someone who really thinks out of the box.

Like Indonesian artist Indra Hakim, who plops famous celebrities into photos of everyday Indonesians – making them convincingly ‘real’.

But of course, the real pull is how hilarious these (mostly) Western celebs look.

Indra posts the edited pieces on his Instagram account, @indra.hakim, and it’s quite easy to say that they’ve become quite popular on social media – if his 185,000+ follower count proves anything.

Take a look at some of his masterpieces below:

These photos are just the tip of the ice berg. As comical and life-like as they look, it’s our obligation to tell you that none of these photos are real. Just in case you get other ideas (or if you don’t know how to read headlines properly).

BONUS: Not a ‘celebrity’, but someone we all know – North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un trying his luck at managing a warung.
