It's already pretty creepy when it works perfectly.

"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity." 

When Albert Einstein said that, he was talking about the atomic bomb, but couldn't he have just as easily been talking about face swapping? I mean, didn't we learn anything from John Travolta and Nicolas Cage? Swapping faces is evil and wrong!

For the uninitiated, Face Swap Live is a tool available on Snapchat and several other platforms that allows users to "swap" their face with another person, or even a photograph.

Even when it goes "right," the results are creepy and weird.

But when it goes wrong, well, there's never been anything wronger.

We know that was hard to look at, but it's for your own good. Leave your face on your own head—as god intended.

Unless you're this guy. This guy is pretty funny.

Yep, you can use Snapchat to face swap with your friend's boob
This article contains explicit material and is NSFW. Once upon a time, face-swapping required the skill and patience of a master Photoshopper . In 2016, with apps like Face Swap Live , we can trade mugs with our friends—or mannequins, or presidential candidates on magazine covers—before we even snap a picture.
