There really is no words, I found it very agist. Its like experience and wisdom are not important these days. I think she looks beautiful at 100.

Watch "100 YEAR OLD lady made YOUNG and BEAUTIFUL again!" on YouTube -

Love how you call it "the YouTube" lol!

She is beautiful at 100, I personally hate makeup etc! But I look older than my 29 years smile

You think people are going to click on a random YouTube link on here?

There's always something awful to watch.

If you want even to get even more outraged about things - read the comments on videos grin

YouTube is full of crazy shit.

I don't think it's intention is to be politically correct.

Honestly if you're shocked by this then you seem very sheltered, as there's actually shocking things out there.

It's just an old face being transformed into a younge one. How is it ageist?

I thought there'd be a video of an old woman being told she couldn't be served at a fast food shop for being too old. hmm

Actually, I know what you mean. It's the idea that the fabulous, giving, 'Photoshop Surgeon' (bleeuch) has revalidated her. Look! She was wrinkly and old and a bit invisible. But look at her now! She's hot!

Mind you, looking at the titles of some of the videos allows me to rest my case: 'Fat girl gets skinny and hot!' anyone? V depressing.

meh, the subtitle at top is a value system that 97% of MN espouse, anyway. I don't really have a problem with this expression of it because the actual video is just a demonstration of image editing tools.

What is it with new posters posting links to crappy You Tube videos recently?

YANBU. But I agree youtube is full of crap as well as really great stuff. I particularly don't like the song that accompanies this video "Is there anyone inside, is there anyone there" etc etc. This video is gently erasing a lifetime of living. Not nice. Age and wrinkles bad - youth and smoothness good. Not a fab message.
