# Might as well be honest here,
animated faceswaps leave me as cold as normal faceswaps.

I'm not having a go at anyone - lots of people seem to find faceswaps funny, so it's obviously me that has the problem. I see one person with another person's face on them, and I think "that doesn't amuse me in the slightest", but lots of other people go "hahahahahahahahahaha".

Can anyone help me understand the appeal, please? I'm not taking the piss here, this is a genuine question. I feel like I'm missing out on a huge joke here, and I want to understand what it is.

# it's personal taste
obviously your humour runs towards the subtle. that's nothing to be ashamed of.
(, Sat 7 Apr 2012, 21:17, archived)
# Perhaps. I like obvious jokes as well, though.
What I mean is that I don't see the joke in putting one person's face on another person's head.

When it's done well (as in Herman's animation up there) I can appreciate the craftsmanship, but I don't understand why lots of people find it funny.

# Genuinely not being cynical here, I just don't get why people think HAHAHA FACESWAPS ARE FUNNY HAHAHA.
From Star Wars to Freebase, I just don't get the joke of one person's face superimposed on another's head. I realise that explaining humour kills it, but I wanted to see if anyone could explain why they find it funny.

Also, frankly, to see if there are any others like me, who don't.

# It's just the (in)appropriate match between head and body
in this case, the very familiar image Rob's winning smile atop a skeleton waving a sword around with a great deal of enthusiasm and more than a little campness. It's not really a joke to think about, it just looks daft.

I'm trying to see through the eye of the beholders who find it funny. Analysing humour is always fatal, but I feel that there's something I'm missing here and I really want to know what it is.

# Ach, it never usually does.
I've done plenty of faceswaps myself, I'm not trying to come across all holier-than-thou here. It's just that I think of them as a means to an end: for me a faceswap is a way of telling a joke, and not an actual joke in and of itself.

# a faceswap tends to walk a very fine line
between funny and simply a technical achievement

If it makes you laugh you're quids in, if it makes you go "well done, good use of photoshop/after effects/whatever tool you followed a tutorial for" then it probably shouldn't be posted here, but on a photoshop/after effects/whatever forum instead.

Same applies to furry/photo/straight artwork posts (in my utterly pointless opinion)
(, Sat 7 Apr 2012, 21:43, archived)
# Well, yeah.
I guess the other point is: faceswaps are staggeringly easy to do. Cut out one person's face, paste it onto another person's head, blend the edges. You've got a convincing faceswap in about 30 seconds.

# That is such a terrible idea
We'd get about 5,000 entries as everyone rushes to repost their reams of shops of someone's face on someone else's face, and then I wouldn't win. Much like every week except for the face on face business. Even though I came up with gems like this:

# They all look so old, they're probably well out of copyright.

# Nah
The soliders are well out of copyright - I think the newest is from 1905 or so (except the shot from "The Wind that Shook the Barley") - but the birds are all recent shots taken down from Flickr, and I've never even tracked what licenses they're under. I doubt they're under the "Photoshop and sell!" license, though...



On the other hand, if I see any other cunt selling these I am going to get the law on them SO HARD. Maybe I should start watermarking stuff.
