Ellen invited model Tanya Marie Keller — whom we know because she recently went viral after appearing on Target’s retail website with a botched Photoshop job — and the appearance will crack you up!
Target received tons of negative backlash after featuring a bikini model on their website with a wayward Photoshop job that omitted a square chunk of her thighs/lady parts and elongated her arms to a superhuman length. To poke fun at the snafu, Keller walked out to greet Ellen with freakishly long arms, just like the ones that catapulted her into viral fame. Ellen commented on Keller’s arms, offering her water, of which Keller struggled to pick up the mug to sip.
I love this snarky reaction to Keller’s photoshop fail. One thing is certain here: Photoshop isn’t going anywhere, no matter how awful the finished product is. Perfection is what we’re spoon-fed, but at least as the consumer, many of us have enough common sense to realize that what we see on screens and in magazines is merely a representation of what’s actually there. It’s what advertisers want us to see. The short interview is a perfectly hilarious reaction to the Photoshopping powers that be who think that people need to consume models in advertisements with unrealistic measurements in order to purchase whatever they’re pushing.
Check out the video above to see Keller’s killer response and spoiler alert–she’s going to wrap her abnormally long arms around Ellen at the end for one of the most awesome hugs you’ll ever see.

1. 10 Celeb PhotoShop Fails We Can't Forget
We all love a fabulous ad, magazine spread or glossy cover featuring our favorite celebs. There's nothing like seeing their shining faces (and epic bodies) looking back at us from the page. But, what happens when some photos take a turn for the worst? We've rounded up a few of our favorite celebs and the pictures that put them in a not-so-flattering light.
2. Nicki Minaj
We thought it was a huge deal for Nicki to land the cover of the famous sports magazine since she only balls in the mall(http://bit.ly/1f6V5oL). From her Instagram, it seemed like she thought it was, too. Turns out she wasn't as happy as we thought, though. In a pic she posted from behind-the-scenes, she says, "I love my personal unretouched photos where my forehead doesn't mysteriously grow in length." Bloop.
3. Lena Dunham
Dunham is known to many as a feminist icon, so some weren't having the HBO golden child's spread in Vogue's February issue. Jezebel.com even bought the retouched photos of Dunham in all her curvy-girl glory...for $10, 000 to expose the digital nip tucking.
4. Lupita Nyong'o
It was exciting to see Lupita Nyong'o grace the pages of Vanity Fair's February issue, but many weren't too pleased with the way she looked. Fans and a few critics cried wolf when Lupita appeared much lighter than usual, though photographers argued the all-white background washed her out.
Beyonce loves those cosmetic brand deals, huh? The global superstar snagged a major campaign deal with L'Oreal who released ads of the pop star that were a bit suspect. The shots, from 2008 circa Beyonce's golden-skin-Dangerously-In-Love phase, portrays a very lighter skin Beyonce. The brand denies going crazy with the photoshop job, but we're left still shaking our heads.
6. Kerry Washington
Kerry is certainly having a moment. So much so, that we pay attention to every cover she's on. While the "Scandal" star is usually fabulous on every cover, we weren't feeling the, er, face-alteration that was made for Lucky Magazine's December 2013 issue.
7. Kim Kardashian
Clearly, Kimmy Kakes was a little too big for photographers who shot this photo of her for Complex.com. **rolls eyes** As you can see, editors slimmed her waist to (even) smaller proportions and toned her arm. Yeah, we're not buying this one bit.
8. OJ Simpson
This infamous cover was released in 1994, the year of Simpson's ex-wife's murder case. It seems TIME was feeling a certain way when they decided to darken Simpson's image.
9. Christina Aguilera
We love to hear Christina belt out tunes and are happy to see her looking happier than ever after her 35-pound weight loss. This Lucky Magazine October 2012 cover was a little too much for us to believe. Is her neck really that tiny?
10. Sarah Jessica Parker
SJP always slays in the fashion game and serves fierceness. But, this Harper's Bazaar China Cover from March 2013 makes her face look a little too fierce...and chiseled.
Madonna is a living legend, but living legends get older just like the rest of us. This before and after image of the Queen made us do a double-take.
