Pete Wentz, Kristen Bell and More Celebs Go Crazy Over Google Arts & Culture App's Face Match
Google's latest invention in promotion of their Arts & Culture app compares your flawlessly taken selfie to a famous painting sitting in a museum somewhere. Using artificial intelligence, after you take a photo, the app matches your facial features with a famous painting. According to reactions, the feature has been either dead-on accurate, or just plain wrong.
Either way, even famous folks can't get enough of the app, and have been comparing themselves to famous artworks all weekend. Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy seemed to be thoroughly enjoying it, posting four photos on Twitter on Sunday (Jan. 14). "This Google arts and culture app is pretty amazing. Feel real strong about my 40%," Wentz captioned the pics.
It was only a matter of time until people began trying it out; even some pets were given the face match treatment, which resulted in some hilarious results. Activist DeRay McKesson took some time out to play around with the app, as did Kristen Bell, Sarah Silverman, Felicia Day, Kumail Nanjiani and more.
Check out some of these reactions to the Google Arts & Culture face match below.
