Let's take a moment to thank Snapchat for creating one of its most entertaining — and disturbing — features yet. The glorious face swap filter can possibly scar you for life if you are not prepared to see what it considers a face. The possibilities are endless, and you'll never truly know exactly what's going to happen when you use this filter — which is pretty much why you can't not try it at least once.

The most popular face swaps going viral are the ones that were not planned — aka when the filter recognizes parts of your or someone else's body as a face or registers ordinary objects as possessing face-like qualities. Here are some of the most incredible — yet disturbing — face swaps that went incredibly wrong but are just so right.
