Photoshop Of Horrors: Victoria's Secret Has A Serious Butt Problem

“Calling all beach bums! Find your perfect fit in our online Swim Style Finder!” is the caption of this image, posted by Victoria’s Secret to the brand’s Facebook page. It’s followed by a link to their online bikini boutique. …Which is, in turn, followed by a 2000-deep (at pub time) comment thread about how absolutely fucking ridiculous this Photoshop hatchet job looks.
