Now anyone can claim to be a work of art

Google Arts & Culture recently released a new feature on its app that lets people upload selfies of themselves and then matches them with a lookalike from a museum. Previously, the app was used as a way for people to experience and explore some of the world’s most famous artworks and cultural centers. It also had a feature that had users use their cameras to help identify pieces of artwork.

To use the doppelgänger feature, a user simply snaps a selfie and then uploads it on the app. The app then quickly unveils an art piece next to the selfie, with a percentage that shows how close of a match it is.

Guys, this app is DEAD ON.
