Even celebrities are having a fun time with the Google Arts and Culture app

Google Arts and Culture
Wikipedia
Introduced in 2016, the Google Arts and Culture app has gone viral in recent days, namely because of an update that lets users compare their selfies to famous works of art. Essentially, the app allows users to fulfill a life’s dream they never knew they had by finding their fine-art doppelgänger.

The update may seem a little silly, but the simplicity and ridiculousness of it is why it has taken off. Using the app takes less than a minute; all you have to do is take a selfie. The pairing process isn’t always all that accurate — after all, it has to analyze your face and then scour thousands upon thousands of historical portraits — but that’s one of the best aspects of Google’s budding feature.

In fact, these inaccuracies have caused a handful of celebrities to post their results on various social media platforms. Here are some of the best (and worst) pairings we’ve come across in the past week or so. Just a note, at the moment the feature in the app is only available in select regions of the U.S.

Kristen Bell

Guys, this app is DEAD ON.

The Google Arts & Culture app apparently didn’t put Bell in a good place.

Pete Wentz

Apparently, Wentz — aka, The Patron Saint of Liars and Fakes is Pretty in Punk.

Sarah Silverman

Who among us hasn’t confused a tongue with a carrot?

Busy Phillips

I win?

In a past life, Busy Phillips once made the first nonstop flight from New York to Paris in a single-engine plane that she lovingly named the Spirit of St. Louis.

Alyssa Milano

Fuck off, Google.

A post shared by Alyssa Milano (@milano_alyssa) on

Google is still upset by the fact that Who’s the Boss never truly answered who was the boss.

Kumail Nanjiani

As Nanjiani astutely points out, the Arts and Culture app can actually do what it’s supposed to do from time to time.

Zach Braff

#blessed

From a facial feature standpoint, the app nails Braff, which is likely why he is feeling very “#blessed.”

Minnie Driver

A post shared by Min (@driverminnie) on

Edvard Munch, a renowned Norwegian painter from the 19th century, definitely had Driver in mind when painting The Scream. Let us just say he was ahead of the times.

Ron Funches

A great smile equals a fantastic fine-art doppelgänger.

Constance Wu

Somehow Google was able to channel Wu’s inner persona from a single selfie. Truly amazing technology.
