The nightmare realm is usually kept at bay, respectfully staying behind our closed eyelids. But every once in a while, usually aided by the unchecked advance of technology, the dark place manages to seep into the waking world. That’s the only possible explanation I can give for this guy using a FaceSwap app to sing “We Are The World” as every member of U.S.A. for Africa.
Rhett LeCompte used FaceSwap live to turn himself into a godless mashup of Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Michael McDonald and others. If that wasn’t enough to make you cringe, the video is vertical.
Check out the original for a palate cleanser. For those that need a refresher, “We Are The World” was a charity single made to benefit humanitarian causes in Africa and it did so, to the tune of $63 million raised. This FaceSwap remake benefits no one but therapists and the void (and presumably, Rhett LeCompte who claims that the original post has 1 million views on Facebook).
Face-swapping has been common nightmare fuel on the internet for quite some time, especially if it involves Nicolas Cage. Luckily for insomniacs who’d like a bit more company, FaceSwap Live is fully ready to take Cage to the next level. Check out this swap and sleep tight.
