If you don't live under a rock, you've probably been seeing and reading a lot about FaceApp, the Russian-made photo service that uses artificial intelligence to make you look old — old enough to soon die and be under a rock!
This is a fad, of course, no different from the bottle cap challenge or the mannequin challenge, or whatever. The one difference, actually, is that here you giggle while handing over your face to a Russian company that would like you to know your data is just fine, completely safe, in their hands.
Some of these altered photos are chillingly realistic. Others are ghoulishly funny. As far as dumb obsessions that last two weeks go, this one is pretty top shelf.
Friends, the best FaceApp photo of all time belongs to a member of your Philadelphia Eagles. Meet geriatric DeSean Jackson, who took a senior moment to joke about his veteran status in the NFL.
The expression, the beard, the gaze, the sinus crinkle — everything about this was perfectly executed. Maybe some other app can calculate his projected 40-time at 78 years old.
There have been some great FaceApp photos of athletes going around, including several from the Eagles. Carson Wentz gives us the terrifyingly accurate future Terry Bradshaw grin. Sidney Jones looks like the Vietnam vet who's in way better shape than his good-for-nothing nephew. Howie Roseman signed Fletcher Cox to a 45-year deal comprised of all guarantees and he's still out there wrecking fools.

And if you were in the dark about FaceApp before you read this, now you're not.
