Back in 2002, a movie called S1m0ne, about a movie director (played by Al Pacino) who creates his own actress from a computer simulation. People thought this was crazy! No way could this ever happen in real life -- a 100 percent, computer-generated image of a human intended to replace actual human talent!
But now, in 2011, this exact thing has happened. Over in Japan, the very popular 61-member girl group AKB48 introduced its newest member -- Aimi Eguchi! She made her debut in a 15-second candy commercial (video above). And then, this week, she was revealed to be a completely computer generated image, a composite of the most "perfect" features of a few of her bandmates. Something that, we're sure, didn't make them the least bit self-conscious. And we're also sure that it's not creepy at all that a lot of people probably came to develop their own little celebrity crush on a perfect female prototype that doesn't even really exist. But we're truly sure that there is something to be said about rejecting actual human females in favor of one who can't complain about being totally objectified.
