Social media is a dysmorphic lens that distorts the way we see ourselves and others, numbing us to what is really important in life. This is about that.
In the beginning of the episode, Boyd Doone is encouraged to be a product tester. He takes up the offer, where the scientists claim their moisturizer can bring out the best of him. Believing this, Boyd lathers himself all over in the moisturizer. He then becomes a very different person- he becomes more handsome and confident.The moisturizer needs to be reapplied every few days to keep the effects in place.
Boyd immediately woos his neighbor, Cherry Sinclair, with his new good looks. They go on several dates together. Cherry actually applies the cream on herself but she unexpectedly turns into a cat. Cherry always wanted to be a pussycat. She and Boyd end up having sex.
Things go great for a while but when they’re kicked off the product testing trial, they run out of cream. A month later, Boyd eventually manages to patch things up with Cherry, who goes over to his house with some mail and claims that she sees him, properly this time.
At Vought headquarters, Boyd’s head explodes as it’s revealed everything that happened was actually a hallucination caused by a large amount of Compound V in the moisturizer.
