This guy may be “average,” but his photoshop skills are anything but. Instagram user Average Rob has gained quite the following by photoshopping himself into celeb photos, and the end results couldn’t look more real—or be more hilarious.
He’s placed himself alongside everyone from Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West to Barack Obama. So, this guy lives quite the glamorous lifestyle, in terms of virtual reality.
In actual reality, he’s reportedly a Belgian artist and comedian who has a Master’s Degree in Advertising and Marketing. And in case you’re wondering where he got those impressive photoshop skills…well…he taught himself how to use the program. “I learned photoshop on my own, because I loved working with it so much,” he told Revelist. “Suddenly your dreams can become reality — well, virtually.”
And the photos look so incredibly real, they’re almost believable. Almost.
You’ll see Average Rob pop up everywhere from red carpets to the Oval Office because, yes, his skills are that next level. Check out the images below and prepare to be amazed.
Here he is just hanging with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds:
And when they’re busy, he hits the red carpet with Kimye:
He has pool parties with Kylie Jenner from time to time:
And he’s even had on-screen appearances in hit shows such as “Stranger Things.” Remember this scene?
Although his time at the White House wasn’t nearly as exciting. It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.
It’s pretty incredible what he’s able to create with his self-taught skills. But while we’re sure he appreciates the fact that his Photoshop abilities are admired, what he’s really trying to do with these images is spread a little joy. “I want to create images that can make people feel better,” he told Revelist. “Laughing is actually a perfect remedy for sadness. So that’s what I want to provide, more happiness.”
If he senses people may be going through a stressful time, he works double-time on his computer to churn out the laughs. “I know most of y’all are studying for the exams & are close to depression so I’ll do my best to post extra during the coming weeks,” he once wrote on Twitter:
