    While perfection is a pretty useless goal for most real people, this Photoshop experiment is still pretty interesting.

    UK pharmacy Superdrug gave the same image to graphic designers from 19 different countries, and told them to make him look like their country's idea of an attractive man.

    Called "Perceptions of Perfection," it aims to make a statement on body image and positivity.

    Ideas about what makes someone attractive are specific to each person, but more broadly than that, they're specific to a culture, so the results varied across the globe.

    The graphic designers, of whom 11 were women and 8 men, were given minimal instructions so as not to skew results.

    "Our goal with this project is to fuel a revolution: to spark real change about body image, to empower people to prioritise health above appearance, and to promote body confidence around the world," the company's website reads.

    We were slightly surprised by how generous the designers were: many of their ideal men aren't especially ripped.

    Our favourite details? The Serbian man's half sleeve, and the Bangladeshi man's boxers. Clothes make the man, after all, even if it's only underwear.
