Popular mobile application “Face App” has been making the rounds across social media, with netizens using the program to change their appearance in a myriad of ways - and even major internet stars have hopped on the trend, with YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg uploading his results with the app in a hilarious video on July 21.
“Face App” allows users to see what they would look like if they were younger, older, male, female, and a plethora of other such traits, prompting humorous posts across the net from those willing to share their facial transformations.
PewDiePie decided to take the plunge and toyed with his own appearance - and his reaction to the changes were nothing short of hilarious.
PewDiePie burst out into laughter after setting the filter to "old," noting that his family doesn’t usually get gray hairs, but deciding that the older version of himself isn’t a future he’s hoping to visit anytime soon.
“Luckily, I’ll get to keep my blonde hair, but my god, it doesn’t look good, does it?” he said of the change, going on to add makeup on top of the older filter.
Kjellberg even created a younger version of himself, humorously claiming that he looked like popular makeup mogul James Charles - but he wasn’t finished, just yet.
He went on to put an older filter over his fiance, Marzia Bisognin, and was pleasantly surprised at the results, claiming that she looked “ a lot better” than he did when aged-up.
PewDiePie isn’t the only popular YouTuber to have used the Face App, by far: in fact, popular content creator Lilly Singh likewise uploaded her reactions to the program in a video on July 19, unsurprisingly shocked at her results.
Despite the buzz around the popular program, Face App is being met with widespread distrust, after researchers discovered that the app’s headquarters are based in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Although many have labeled the app as a major invasion of privacy, it continues to skyrocket in popularity in spite of the scandal, with more and more internet stars sharing their own Face App transformations online.
