A little boy lost his favourite stuffed elephant -- now people are photoshopping it into all kinds of exotic adventures

Elephant-photoshopReddit/GentlemanMetalheadThis little elephant is having the virtual adventure of a lifetime.

Most of us know photoshop as the software that airbrushes models until they’re barely recognisable. But today on Reddit, it’s being used to make a little kid’s day. 

Yesterday, Redditor kontankarite posted a photo of a stuffed elephant named Fezzik with the caption: “Friend’s son lost his favourite toy. Parents said the elephant is travelling around the world. Would love to share images of his travels with the son.”

Photoshop experts quickly stepped up to the challenge. Hundreds of commenters found creative ways insert Fezzik into a whole slew of exciting adventures, helping the little boy cope with the loss of his favourite toy. 

So far, Fezzik the elephant has gone swimming with turtles:
