article imagePhotoshop trend makes "Little Fatty" a famous face

By Nathalie Caron     Nov 21, 2006 in Lifestyle
A simple, shy Chinese 19 year old becomes the laughing stalk of his entire country, in what has become one the biggest Photoshop gags ever.
The first time Qian Zhijun that saw his image online was when he was sitting in an internet café and another customer asked him if he was the real-life Little Fatty — or Xiao Pang — whose face was perched on the shoulders of the world’s celebrities. The young man was stunned. “I felt really humiliated. I couldn’t bear it and I left.”
Internet aficionados have superimposed his slightly suspicious sidelong glance and cherubic cheeks on to such iconic images as Harry Potter, the Mona Lisa, Marilyn Monroe and Austin Powers.
I always thought that such websites as Uglypeople.com and Fugly.com were mean and insulting to those who landed on them.
In this case, the prank has engulfed the entire nation.
