Googlifier Adds Googly Eyes to All Photos on the Internet and It's Amazing/Terrible

Have you ever visited a website and thought, “Yeah, this is good, but what if all of the photos on the page had googly eyes on them?”

This is the concept of the Googlifier, a new Chrome extension that lets you add googly eyes to a webpage’s photographs with the click of a button. 

It’s an amazing concept and immediately makes literally every website in the world better. Visit any page, tap the Googly Eyes button in your Extensions bar, and wait for your screen to be Googlified. 

Look what it did to the Daily Mail’s lead story, for example:

This is already a much more compelling splash, I think we can all agree!

Now, adding Googly Eyes to photographs is fun. But what makes Googlifier even more tremendous, in practice, is how inaccurate it is. You can see this above, in the random little eyeballs popping out of Beyonce’s neck. This happens all the time. 

And frankly, it’s fantastic. And I can’t. Stop. Laughing. At Googlifed photos. 

Obviously, I’ve been having way too much fun with this tool. And you can too! Googlifier is a free download for Google Chrome here. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to visit my Facebook page and Googlify myself.

Let me know what your favorite Googlified photos are, either by tweeting at me here or emailing me at jog@yahoo-inc.com. I very, very much look forward to your submissions.
