Singer Retouched by Post Production is Barely Recognizable

January 28, 2014 2 min read

Once upon a time we were shocked by what photoshop could do and how far ads went to conform the women in front of them into symbols of the beauty ideal.  At the heart of it though do we really understand that everything that is printed or on a screen has been altered?  Do we fully grasp the extent to which its done? Enter, Hungarian singer, Csemer Boglarka (Boggie) and her new song Noveau Parfum.  The music video to Noveau Parfum is unlike any other.  It's just a screen of Csemer singing but takes her through post-production alteration in real time.  She's makeup free with tired eyes and un-styled hair.  By the end she's ready for the catwalk or center stage. At the end of the video you probably wouldn't recognize her for the same person.  The color and shape of her eyes have been changed and the size proportion altered.  The style of her hair along with its color have been changed not to mention her skin tone, whiteness of her teeth, and clothing are all changed.  Artificial lighting creates the perfect, flawless, radiant skin tone that women spend their lives and salaries trying to achieve...when its just a fantasy. article-2543818-1ADEA6AE00000578-534_636x363 Csemer's song criticizes the modern culture of consumerism and conformity.  Her chorus translates to; ‘Of beauty, preciousness; they cannot change me. Peerless, unparalleled. The new fragrance is myself’ while the third verse states ‘mascara, blush, lipstick, lipsticks, lip liners, eye shadow, foundation, nail, pressed powder and I do not want it.’  And the refrain of 'I am not a product.' article-2543818-1ADEA6E500000578-200_638x358 Csemer is the first artist to highlight the work that goes into changing artists in a music video although its not alone in its criticism of photoshop and digitally altering images.  We as consumers are so misguided as to what reality is.  We are chasing a fantasy and allowing the fantasy to be perpetuated because we want to think its real.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
