Occasionally there are still wonderful things on the Internet. I know, it's hard to believe. But it's true! Over the past few days, the Google Arts and Culture app has gone viral for its uncanny ability to match a selfie of your face with a famous piece of art in a museum. Chances are you've already downloaded the app and tried it yourself, but just in case you haven't we'll show you how. We'll also show you the best face matches from the app on the Internet because let's be honest, we could all use a giggle.
First, you gotta download the Google Arts and Culture app onto your phone. Go on. We'll wait. OK, now that you have it. Scroll down to the screen that looks like this:
And hit “Get Started!” It’ll prompt you to take a selfie (you can’t use an existing one, sorry. You’re beautiful just the way you are!), and then it will work its magic.
And it will result in something like this:
Just gorgeous, isn’t it?!
Sometimes it helps to get a great match if you’ve put yourself in an…interesting position.
Incredible! You can click to view the entire artwork and learn while you laugh. That’s the whole point of this lovely viral app anyway.
Below are some of the app’s greatest accomplishments…
A Woman Cutting Bread
OK, this woman looks nothing like the woman in the painting.
To be fair though, we all do look that ecstatic whilst slicing a loaf, so this one is actually pretty accurate.
Whatchu Talkin' 'Bout Willis?
This is…dark…and not super accurate. But c’mon. What actual human looks like a neon blue Gary Coleman? Not even Gary Coleman looked like that.
Get ready for the best baby face match in history…
