Tis the season for playing around with weird iOS apps with your friends and family, and boy, do we have a doozy for you. It’s called Face Swap Live, and it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Created by Laan Labs, Face Swap Live allows you to surrealistically switch the faces of two people in video real-time. So if you were taking a video selfie with your girlfriend, her face would be on your head, and vice versa. It’s hilarious at best, and utterly nightmarish at worst.

Here’s the official app description (emphasis added):

Face Swap Live lets you switch faces with a friend or a photo in real-time. Record videos or photos of yourself swapping faces with a celebrity, friend or any fun picture from the internet or your phone. Unlike other apps that only can use static photos, this app switches faces live right from your camera’s video feed. Ever wanted to see your talking face on Marilyn Monroe’s photo. Be amazed putting your moving mouth onto a pic of your favorite pet.

Got that? You can sing Happy Birthday to yourself as Marilyn Monroe, or graft your own face on your dsog?

The app is just as fun as that makes it sound, I swear. We spent the better part of Christmas day at my in-law’s house playing around with it.

Best of all? It’s only $0.99. Grab it here
