11 face swaps gone wrong that will haunt your dreams forever

“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.

Straight out of a horror film… #faceswapgonewrong #snapchat #mates #goodtimes

But most importantly, in the name of all that is good and holy, never ever face swap with yourself, lest you create one of these monstrosities:

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.
