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.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
