Reebok's Spartan Race is one of the most challenging physical competitions in the world, and many people enter just to see if they can actually make it through the whole course without breaking down.
These competitors then post the pics online hoping to hear encouraging words from their friends and family, and to encourage others to push themselves- Spartan style.
But the guy in the photos above should have known better than to post his Spartan Race pics on Facebook because his friends work in the visual fx industry- so they spirited him away from the Spartan Race and into a Photoshop Battle.
Soon the poor guy was wading through much worse than mud, fighting for survival in strange new places far more dangerous than a mere obstacle course.
But in the end he finished the race as a real hero with some cool new CGI tricks up his sleeve.
