Photoshop is a force to reckon with that shapes our world more than we know. From the oversaturated exotic destinations that smile to us from the website of the traveling agency to the celeb bodies and faces we consider perfect, everything gets a little help for putting all those loose pixels in order.
However, when it falls into the wrong hands, Photoshop becomes a tool for mockery and lying. Patrick Thorendahl is one Photoshop craftsman that stepped on the wrong side of his guild and used the powerful photo editing software to live the high life and make his friends jealous.
It all started on Instagram. Under the comfortable alter ego Peeje T, the graphic artist began to modify the world of celeb so that it includes him also. The innocent past-time activity quickly grew to epic proportions as Peeje became infatuated with the attention his hobby attracted.
Peeje developed an obsession from inserting himself into celeb pics. His talent is beyond doubt, and the retouched photos have a paparazzi-like quality that earned him hundreds of thousands of followers. Is Peeje’s life better since he began to alter reality? No one can say for sure.
It is, nevertheless, incredibly fun to browse through some of his most appreciated pieces of work. You will be amazed by the incredible twist some celebs photos get!
Who doesn’t dream of having Rihanna leaning on his shoulder?
Peeje T made all his friend jealous when he came up with such a pic on Instagram. Not only the Photoshop job is flawless, but also the body positions are highly realistic.
Rihanna seems to enjoy herself in the company of the man that became an Internet celeb once he put his graphical skills to good use. Not the same can be said about violent boyfriend Chris Brown, who is seen lurking in the background.
Peeje T is not the only commoner who pictured himself amongst star. What separates him from the average high school computer geek is the attention towards details. Just look at the second photo in which he feeds Rihanna some goodies.
Many say Peeje T is asking for it. A black eye is coming his way, and Chris Brown will definitely not escape jail this time.
Can you guess the next celeb that had its pictures hijacked?
2. Nicki Minaj
Did Nicki Minaj respond in any way to Peeje’s instigations?
Apparently not, and the 34-year singer clearly doesn’t need extra attention. Peeje T (peejet) might have 225k followers on Instagram, but his sweetheart is light years ahead of him with 74 million fans.
Let’s be honest. It’s clear that Peeje’s artwork is geared mostly on female celebs and that the poor bastard would do anything to initiate contact with his sexy idols.
Although it seems he is ridiculing them, Peeje is worshiping the stars he would never get to meet. He can call himself lucky not to have lawsuits on the agenda. All the photoshopping surely breaks one or two copyright rules.
We have to say this to you. There are far better photos involving Peeje and Nicki Minaj, but they are not safe for all of our audience members. True connoisseurs know what is hiding behind those two pumpkins as Minaj even showed them on live TV.
Nothing could stop Peeje, not even the prospect of having his ass kicked.
3. Kanye West
Take this photo for granted, and the first conclusion that comes to mind is that Kanye West and Peeje are homies who know each other since high school.
We doubt the singer that released “Yeezus” is comfortable knowing this photo spread like wildfire on the Internet. Given West’s notorious lack of humor and sensibility to jokes involving him or his wife, the photo below better depicts how a meeting between the two would unfold.
West broke many paparazzi’s cameras so he would have no problem smashing Peeje’s laptop. The Photoshop artist needs to remember the 39-year-old rapper attended anger management sessions and came inches close to serving years behind bars for violent reactions.
As you will later see in the article, Kanye West is entirely justified to take action against this annoying prankster. Let’s all pray he doesn’t.
Some say that Peeje delivered justice with some of his photoshopped photos. Check the next ones and judge for yourself.
4. Miley Cyrus
When Miley Cyrus went off the track in 2013, Peeje T apparently took it is an opportunity to add another celeb on the “to do” list.
The memorable MTV Video Music Awards performance got an unexpected makeover that is wrong in so many ways. You can see the Photoshop artist helping Billy Ray Cyrus better deal with his daughter’s embarrassing makeover.
But it didn’t end there. Peeje gave photoshopping a rarely explored twist. The poor man is pictured having to put up with crazy Miley. If she does all those nasty stuff live, God knows what she is capable of in the intimacy of the bedroom.
“Can’t Be Tamed” is the album name that fits best to describe the awkward situation, as Peeje is overwhelmed by Miley’s contortionism.
That photo made no one jealous, and his account was overflowed with compassion. Do you know that domestic violence can go both ways?
Peeje didn’t resume to showbiz celebs. He risked a bit and mocked even political figures. Can you guess who’s next?
5. President Obama
Obama is no longer in the Oval Office, but he will always be remembered as the coolest President ever.
Peeje exploited Obama’s unusual predisposition for puns and jesting and dared to picture himself alongside the leader of the free world. No, this not attracted an investigation from special services.
It was obvious for everyone that Patrick Thorendahl couldn’t get the security clearance to attend such high-level meetings and that everything was part of his usual act.
What do you think about the photo below? Our opinion is that Obama would have won with a more comfortable lead if we had Peeje in his campaign team. That man knows how to make fake things look real, and that’s the backbone of politics.
Would Peeje expand his questionable art on Trump? Who’s with us when we say the Donald would exile Peeje on the wrong side of the wall?
Peeje upset a female athlete when he Photoshopped his body in awkward positions. Can you guess who got angry with him?
6. Serena Williams
It seems like Peeje is a fan of tennis.
However, his agony of keeping up with the tournaments stopped no further than the first position in the WTA. The Photoshop artist is a fan of Serena Williams, who was featured in at least two of his recent works.
We have to say we are not sure about the symbolism hidden inside the two photos. We get it that Serena is acting more like a gladiator than a lady on the court, but that doesn’t fully explain the awkward position.
Peeje must be a very disturbed young man to be capable of exposing his wildest fantasy on Instagram – to have Serena standing on top of him like that. As for the second photo, we don’t even dare to think what that horse head in the upper left means.
The current online level of erudition must be too low to keep up with the artist’s most elaborate collages.
Peeje confused many fans when he pretended to be a close friend of one of the greatest basketball players in history. How far is he willing to go?
7. Kobe Bryant
Peeje’s flirt with the world of sports was rather short-lived.
Besides Serena Williams, the Photoshop artisan took on Kobe Bryant and pictured himself side-by-side to the exponential basketball player. 1.98 m high and with a record of violent behavior both on the court and off, Kobe is not the kind of man you want to upset.
That is just one of the reason Peeje no longer feels safe. His career of hijacking a place in people’s lives brought him very close to full-scale madness.
Kobe played 20 seasons for the Los Angeles Lakers and despite the three consecutive championships won in 2000, 2001, and 2002, there was room for plenty of drama. What Peeje wants to make you believe is that he was a crying shoulder for the basketball player.
Each time Kobe Bryant polished the reserve bench or failed to put the ball through the hoop, Peeje was there to provide moral support.
Is Peeje pushing his luck with the Photoshopped photos? The next celeb he mocked is a rapper who might not take it mildly.
We know what disappoints you here!
Everyone expected Peeje to photoshop himself in scenes taken from “Hotline Bling,” the video that went viral and ultimately proclaimed Drake as a superstar. Instead, the 29-year-old mastermind chose to assist the Canadian rapper during his weight-lifting routine.
Reading between the lines (pixels, if you prefer) of the photos can make anyone swear the two are besties who know each other since childhood.
“Started from the Bottom” definitely looks better with Peeje around as the Photoshop guru was inspired enough to appear in line with the central theme of the music video. Nothing beats standing on top of a white Bentley convertible during a blizzard.
Will Peeje ever get featured in one of Drake’s upcoming projects? Nothing is certain in the world of celebs. Comes a hard time, Drake could use the thousands of fans that accept Peeje as their lord and savior.
You could either love or hate the next star. However, you will be amused by the ways Peeje chose to appear alongside her.
9. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian simply could not miss from Peeje’s repertoire.
The Photoshop mastermind never had a hard time appearing in Kim’s life as the controversial celeb is omnipresent in the showbiz world. Peeje owes his fame to the few pics of him and Kim that went viral on Instagram.
For someone who has been living under a rock the last couple of years, stumbling upon such photos can tell a story taken out of parallel universe. Kim Kardashian married the man she loved, a regular folk that earns his pennies doing Photoshop and still lives with mom and dad.
Just look at the second photo below and try to identify a flaw. Nothing beats a night out with Kim and meeting other fellow celebs. As for Kanye West gazing from the row behind, that is one thing that never happened in this alternate timeline.
Not even music videos are safe from the skilled mouse of Photoshop artist Peeje. Has he gone too far with the next victims?
10. Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj
For those naïve to believe everything they see on the Internet, it appears that Peeje was granted access behind the scenes of one of the hottest music videos ever produced.
When the two superstars unleashed the collective power of their booties in “Feeling Myself,” the world went nuts. The music videos released in 2015 would have probably gone nowhere if it weren’t for Peeje joining the production team.
Peeje is seen here accompanying the two lovely ladies in the photoshoot that took place during filming. Do you feel like something is out of place?
Just look at the original photos below and judge for yourself. Although Peeje had a steady hand, the awkwardness of his persona almost always gives him away.
The next celebs got it hard from Peeje.
11. Blac Chyna
Peejee just couldn’t contain himself from playing nasty Photoshop tricks on Blac Chyna.
The controversial celeb that owes much of her fame to her unusual rear end got used to such levels of roasting. Let’s analyze the facts! When you look like that and show yourself without shame, you have it coming your way.
Peeje looks terribly comfortable sitting on Blac Chyna’s back. We might laugh now, but there is no guarantee the future is safe from such surprises. Our cities might replace conventional means of public transport with this reversed form of piggyback riding.
What we fail to understand is why Peeje was so gentle with the 28-year-old model. Above is the booty selfie that made Chyna famous in the first place. Of course, Kim’s presence helped a great deal in turning it viral.
Peeje is sometimes unpredictable. You will never guess who is the next star he embarrassed!
12. Evelyn Lozada
Evelyn Lozada looks quite comfortable with Photoshop Peeje caressing her beautiful legs.
We hate to upset our geeky fans that tend to believe in fairytales, but this is just another example of excellent Photoshop skills. The original photo is without Peeje in it and belongs to a Maxim photo shoot Lozada did in 2012.
Evelyn Lozada’s presence on the artist’s list is hard to explain. Peeje modus operandi rarely involves making use of celebs outside the A-list.
Do you know what made Evelyn Lozada famous? The American TV personality was part of the cast in VH1 reality series “Basketball Wives.” Dating NBA forward Antoine Walker was enough to grant her stardom.
We will give you the pleasure of admiring Lozada in a photo without Peeje’s disturbing stare in it.
Some say that Peeje does his best work when he takes on celeb couples. What do you think?
13. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Photoshop can trick the mind into believing facts that are simply not real.
Take these two photos. For someone not familiar with the close circles of Kardashians, Peeje appears as a family friend with whom Kim is very comfortable.
It goes as far as taking selfies together and being intimate to each other meters away from the husband, Kanye West. However, that’s an awkward twist life took in the mind of Peeje and the few of his followers that fell for it.
Do you still feel like Peeje might appear one day alongside a celeb for real? We hate to break it to you, but they printed photos of him and spread them to all the places where celebrities congregate. Peeje is most likely a sociopath blacklisted from all public gatherings.
He will never ruin power couples by selling fake paparazzi-style photos that prove infidelities.
Peeje outdid himself with the next two photos. Do you want to see them?
14. Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Peeje manifested a particular fondness for Beyoncé and Jay-Z, along whom he appears many times.
We have to give him credit for the job. Peeje acts as the perfect third wheel, supporting the richest family in the showbiz world each time they need someone from the outside to break the routine.
Can you find a suitable caption for the photo above? “The next two rounds are on me! Peeje was spotted again leaving poor Jay-Z in the background as he escorts beautiful Beyoncé to a full night out.”
Beyoncé and Jay-Z seem to have the time of their lives as they hop along meticulous driver Peeje for a nighttime drive through the neighborhood. Nothing beats feeling Beyoncé warm breath on the back of your head as you pump gas.
Peeje’s photos are nothing without a clever caption. Look at the next gem that made some forgetful fans rush for the Internet for validation.
15. Rihanna & Shakira
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” would seem old for the ever-changing world of music.
What? You don’t remember Peeje starring appearing alongside the two lovely musicians? Either your brain cells are playing lazy, or there is something terribly wrong here.
Peeje’s Instagram account first introduced the photoshopped pic with a hilarious caption – “I woke up like this.” Yeah, right! We all hate it when Rihanna and Shakira keep crawling in our beds and perform sexy moves in skimpy outfits, but we don’t brag about it.
Peeje is clearly a man that wants to escape his league. However, he is not modest when it comes to making choices. Pair his incredible photo manipulation skills with some non-famous beauties, and you end up with solid stories that could have made him an Instagram God.
Peeje’s next masterpiece proves just how resourceful he can be. You must see it!
16. Oscars Selfie
See if you can spot what is wrong in the back view of the famous Oscars selfie.
This might date back to 2014, but fans are not done talking about it. Some are still baffled by the sheer density of celebs that fit into one photo.
The casual attire gave away Peeje this time. Otherwise, there would have been no clue. The Oscars always bring into the limelight celebs no one heard before.
We have to give credit to Peeje for his smart thinking. He positioned himself low enough to justify not appearing in the famous selfie. Who agrees with us that Jennifer Lawrence has a big head?
Send Peeje and his Photoshop back in time even just decades ago, and he will appear as a wizard. Send him even backward, and he would end up founding a religion.
Tired of Photoshopped celeb photos? Buckle up! Here comes the last one.
Peeje’s favorite target is by far Beyoncé. The 35-year-old artist recently announced that she is again pregnant as she skyrocketed on Google in front of most other trending topics.
Searching for pics of the diva might render one of Peeje’s masterpieces stranded well beyond the first result page. We can only congratulate those who stumbled upon such gems by accident.
The Internet has some weird parts, and the photoshopping genius of Patrick Thorendahl (Peeje) put a shoulder into making it even more bizarre. Will a day come when it would be impossible to tell which is which?
Of course, the simpler alternative would be admiring Peeje as he does sit-ups while being held in the air by Beyoncé.
