Kelsey:  Hey, Gary! Have you tried face swapping, yet?

Gary:  That freaks me out! It is so disturbing!

Kelsey:  Have you tried it, yet?

Gary:  No! I’ve seen it though.

Kelsey:  Yeah, I know a lot of people think it’s disturbing, but I think it’s hilarious.

Gary:  So, the one that really freaked me out the most was a face swap of a guy and a doll… like a doll that a little child would play with kind-of thing. It looked… It was so weird.

Kelsey:  Yeah, it can be kind-of crazy, but I think it’s a cool way to see what different facial features and hairstyles look good on different people. I just like the variety that you can see when you face swap.

Gary:  The one thing that I do think is pretty neat about it is that you can try on your face on a mannequin, on another person… it’s weird to kind-of think about it that way…

Kelsey:  Yeah. I actually face swapped with Chris Pratt.

Gary:  No way!

Kelsey:  And it looked exactly like Heath Ledger, which I found really interesting.

Gary:  Well, show me some of your favorite ones.

Kelsey:  Um, OK… Here’s one that my friend did. He face swapped with someone, and then he took that photo and face swapped it with another person, so it looks really creepy.

Gary:  Yeah, that’s disturbing.
