Classroom Ideas

Students could be encouraged to record key pieces of advice given by the celebrities within the clip and then discuss. For example, "the Japanese idea of beauty is that everyone should have one imperfection" or "you should tilt your head upwards to avoid a double chin." Students could then discuss the concept of there being one perfect body shape or idea of beauty in an informal debate.
