    Interesting video, but I’m slightly creeped out that all of the targets chosen were women. Maybe there’s a reason for that that’s not obvious in the video itself, but it just struck me as a little… off, somehow.

    Ooh ooh! New quackery idea: wind therapy to improve skin tone! You know they’ll buy it! Who’s with me?

    For those asking about men’s faces being blown out by wind, here’s one. Skip ahead to the 3:00 mark for the relevant part:
