Josh the Free Runner is loose on the streets of San Paro.

Early in July, APB introduced The Human Avatar, a project designed to show off one of the game's most promoted features: character customization. Realtime Worlds describes APB's customization options as "almost limitless," and what better way to show that off than to take a real person, let fans give him a full makeover, and turn him into an in-game avatar?

Fans voted for Josh, a Free Runner from London, and subsequent votes gave him a startling transformation. Josh got a new hairstyle, snout ring, tattoo, steampunk-inspired clothing, and finally a new doppelganger in the form of an identical APB avatar.

Take a look at the results in the video after the jump, and check out the Human Avatar site to see the entire project.
