23 terrifying and hilarious face swaps (2024)

Face swapping has been around in one form or another for a while. There's an option within Snapchat that lets you snap a photo while swapping your face with a friend or family member who's also in the same image, but there are other apps designed to do it too.

These apps are incredibly popular because they're often hilarious, terrible, terrifying or just downright daft.

To bring you the chortles and perhaps inspire you to get face swapping yourself, we've collected a gallery of our favourites for you to enjoy.

Nostrils for a face. Lovely.

Sometimes the intelligence in these face-swapping apps is terribly bad at picking up what should logically be a face and what should be swapped.

The results are often gruesome and horrific, but no doubt amusing too.

A ventriloquist's dream?

We're not sure whether we're amused or scared by this one. But ventriloquists might love the idea of their puppet come to life.

Feline face

Grown-up people with perfectly hilarious baby faces. What's not to love?

Images like this make us wonder if the world would be a better place if everyone was this baby-faced. It would certainly be a lot cuter. It also makes us thinks that babies wearing make-up is a weird sight indeed.

Thomas the tank engine

When face swap apps transform something inanimate into what looks like a real person, the results are often comical. Even more so when the person in the photo gets the opposite treatment.

Happy little chappy

Man's best friend?

Ever wondered what your furry four-legged friend might look like with a human face? Wonder no more.

Alas, what has been seen, cannot be unseen. Though a person with a dog face might well be scarier.

This little piggy

So much to love with this one, including the beardy baby-faced Dad.

That's one handsome baby girl you've got there. It's a shame about the visual challenges and the moustache, but other than that. We love the beardy baby-faced Dad too. What a combo.

Terrifying Thomas

Statue swap

It's always fun when someone does a face swap with a statue or doll and actually manages to improve the inanimate object for the better. Can't say the same for the person, but that's one hilarious statue.

Sofa face
