Visual Culture: Dove Advertisement Comparison

This comparison image has the same impact as the Katya Zharkova anorexia in modeling PMM advertising campaign.  I have not been able to find the source of the original publication.  It has gone viral all over the place.  The Dove / Unilever corporation has not responded to any of my questions about the origin of the image.   Were these separate images that were pulled together by a third party?  Did the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty create the combined image and release it, shooting their photograph in imitation of the Victoria Secret advert.  Only god, and maybe a few people in marketing departments, know the truth.
