It’s 2018, and celebrity doppelgängers are so passé; the latest trend is to find your museum portrait doppelgängers, with amusing — and often horrifying — results.
The free Google Arts & Culture app has been gaining viral attention on social media, with even celebrities like Busy Phillips and Rowan Blanchard sharing their LOL-worthy hand-painted lookalikes. (Granted, the app has a few other features as well, including featured articles, celebrity interviews, and art collections, but it’s the most recent selfie installment that has garnered widespread attention).
To unveil your destiny, snap a photo of yourself in real-time (no prepared uploads allowed, so know your angles) and allow the app to tell you which portrait best matches your features, and what percentage of a match you are.
As Blanchard’s Instagram Stories suggests, it’s probably best not to take it all too seriously.
Busy Phillips is appropriately enamored with the app — and she isn’t the only one.
Congratulations, Google marketing geniuses, for spurring thousands of selfie enthusiasts to download an app about art.
