We the Unicorns

We must cast this app back into the fiery chasm from whence it came.

Very rarely will I ever describe anything I see on YouTube as horrifying, unless of course you're asking for my opinion on MadeYewLook's creepy makeup tutorials. But now we can officially add one more thing to the list of things that have terrified us on YouTube - the Face Swap Live app.

With pretty much every single major league YouTuber downloading the app and messing up their face so unforgettably, I definitely lost control of whether I was crying out of the sheer hilarity of it all or whether I was now completely disturbed beyond recovery. If you don't believe me, check out some of the 'highlights' below.


You will honestly never forget the time you saw PewDiePie's face on a baby. Or Donald Trump for that matter. Please don't watch this.


This video may seem like a charming combination of JackSepticEye and Markiplier having some simple smart phone-based banter, but it's horrifying and you will need to have a cuddle with your mother once it's over. Avoid please.


Actual tears left my eyes whilst watching Jenna Marbles and her bae Julien Solomita take part in this awful trend. Splash holy water on your screen right now and ignore the fact you ever realised this app was a thing. Save yourself.


Nobody on the planet is evil enough to watch KSI swap his face with Zoella. Not only is this pure nightmare fuel, but it's destroying the sanctity of YouTube for good. Congratulations on ruining your dreams for good. Hard pass.


Twaimz is too pure for this, too innocent. But no, Face Swap Live has tainted this wonderful YouTuber for good and now we live in a brand new world in which post-Twaimz-face-swap exists. We now reject all forms of morality. We welcome the devil.


Congratulations on making it to the final Face Swap Live video. You clearly have no concerns for your mental health and somehow find all of these disturbing videos stuffed full of comedic value. Well, prepare to see Miranda sings face on a cat and reconsider how you just spent the last few minutes of your life. You've crossed a line.
