Leave it to technology to add yet another method of procrastination for students. Although I’m no Snapchat guru (or frequent user, for that matter), I’ve recently become obsessed with the new Face Swap feature (is it new? No, I don’t think it is. So that tells you how often I actually use Snapchat).
Behold, in all of its facial inaccuracies, my adventure with Face Swap during the last day of classes and impending all-day-studying of finals.
First, I needed to Face Swap some graduation photos, because (hopefully!) I’ll one day be in that position. But unfortunately, both of the graduation photos on the walls of the Ag For building and Business building were too small for Snapchat to recognize the faces, so I ended up just swapping them with each other, like so:
|Hopefully this isn’t a sign that I won’t be graduating.|
|This one is particularly frightening and makes my face especially resemble a certain snouted and curly-tailed animal. The convenient aspect about this one, though, is that we’re both wearing fairly large glasses that match up pretty well.|
|I particularly enjoy this one because it looks like I could probably star as the sassy mother figure in a 90’s sitcom.|
|I’m not entirely sure what happened here, but it looks like a tri-Face Swapping incident. Whatever it is, there’s no denying it’s valuable in its own existence.|
|To be frank, I’ve never wondered what I would look like with a moustache. But now I know the answer, whether I like it or not. Also: why does my face look like I’ve just been asked to explain Quantum Physics in front of a lecture hall?|
Psych! You totally can:
|I feel as though I’ve terrified all descendants of Henry Marshal Tory (our first university president), and for that I apologize.|
If you ever see me around campus, don’t be afraid to ask for a Face Swap. It is, without a doubt, one of my favourite new methods of procrastinating. Thank you for that, Snapchat.
Think you can best me? Try Face Swapping the same or other photos, statues, or real-life human beings and tweet us @YouAlberta so we can see them!
