In a photoshop battle that's more provocative than humorous, the UK company Superdrug's online doctor service offered up a photo of one New Yorker for 19 graphic designers to manipulate as they pleased, BuzzFeed reported. The original image was sent to the 11 male and eight female designers from 19 different countries with the instructions to "Photoshop and retouch this man to make him more attractive to the people of your country." 

The resulting 19 photoshops vary greatly in terms of body shape, hair style, and photoshop ability.

These five stand out in particular for their spins on the original dude.

Australia's man is decidedly not a Hemsworth-type

Bangladesh's man rocks some sweet undergarments.

Egypt's man looks like he works out, when not trimming his beard.

Russia's blonde man is noticeably barrel-chested.

The United States' guy is expectedly bland.

The project, the website shares, was initially inspired by the work of Esther Honig. In 2014, Honig sent out an image of her face to designers across the world. The photoshoppers got a little more colorful with Honig's face than the designers did with the male body.

Superdrug's photoshop project is itself a follow-up to a project regarding the female body, where once again graphic designers took more liberties with color.

Like with the man from Bangladesh, the Netherlands' woman stood out for her apparel of choice: boots. Though that's not exactly the biggest difference between those photoshopped images.
