We Run 8 of Our Favorite GunTubers Through FaceApp and You Can’t Unsee the Results

Ready for some nightmare fuel?

please god no

You’re in luck!

We’re going to assume that the vast majority of our readership isn’t familiar with FaceApp – an app for both iOS and Android that spits out hilariously cursed retouched photos.

Wish you would have smiled in a photo?

FaceApp’s got you, and will apply an unsettling grin to your photo based on what its neural network thinks the photo should look with your pearly whites bared.

We’re sure you see where this is going

Naturally, we gravitated towards our YouTube gun channel celebrities after mangling photos of ourselves, friends, and family…

And the results are so awful we cannot bear this burden alone.

Please observe. 

1. Forgotten Weapons

Easily one of the most entertaining and wholesome historical gat channels around, we’re very big fans of Gun Jesus.

That being said, giving Ian bangs strikes some chord of sheer terror that has shaken us to our very core as humans.

why is this so upsetting

2. MrGunsnGear

An all around informative channel that covers a lot of basic topics for new shooters, and yet another victim of these horrific, whispy bangs the almighty neural network has chosen.

My dude out here in the woods looking like a midlife crisis wood elf in a dated RPG.

What’re ya sellin? What’re ya buyin?

3. Paul Harrell

If well-presented information and the calm demeanor of a highschool shop teacher is what you’re looking for in your gun vids, Paul Harrell’s going to be right up your alley.

We almost feel bad letting the malicious computer code turn him into a vaguely Scandinavian Dollar Store Joker.


This look does NOT fit his head better than the old one…

4. Demolition Ranch

A good chunk of the larger channels know that your appearance is nearly as important as your content.

And while ballistics testing is cool and all, we have no doubts that DR would have a much different vibe if it was run by an AI-generated Tobias Bluth

Alternatively: Crisis-era Brittney

5. Hickok45

“Hickok 45 here, and I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve traveled into the past to become a slightly younger Uncanny Valley clean-shaven version of myself.”

y’all knew we couldn’t do Grandpa dirty like that

6. Garand Thumb

You are now aware that Garand Thumb with smokey eyes, long hair and a mustache is basically just the dude from Nickelback with a gun.


7. Travis Hayley


Bonus: Our Very Own Pew Pew Tactical Johnny

If it wasn’t obvious, we don’t take ourselves super seriously, and we can’t in good faith clown on others and not roast ourselves. 

But you have no idea how much we wish we didn’t have to create this horrifying carnival version of everyone’s favorite soccer dad memelord. 

chaos reigns.

We even tried to soften the blow a little bit by imagining he’s just a kindly, eccentric pizza chef instead. 

It didn’t work. 

we’re so very, very sorry.

Here’s a…slice of his a-pizza-pie!


Has science gone too far?

And more importantly…should we have a Part 2?  Who did we miss?

    The Travis Haley joke made me lol so hard but not as mush as when I learned Pew Pew Johnny is one monster shlong away from a Ron Jeremy double

    I never realized Garand Thumb is one haircut and a few double cheeseburgers away from Nick Cage in Con Air. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go bleach my eyes.
