Unsuspecting Bus Riders Are Photoshopped While They Wait [Video]

Unsuspecting Bus Riders Are Photoshopped While They Wait [Video]

In support of Adobe’s Creative Days, the company hired the help of a photographer who has a knack for using Photoshop. Erik Johansson used these skills to manipulate pictures of people and place them onto a nearby billboard.

This particular prank took place in Sweden, but there are plans to do the same in other countries. If you’re interested, you can watch the next event live by signing up at Adobe’s website.

For now though, we recommend you take a look at this video to see one of this year’s most pleasant pranks:
