Google has really tapped into something with the new feature on its arts and culture app, which uses image-recognition software and a database of paintings from museums across the world to find users’ painting double.
Social media feeds have been inundated with posts of the pairings, and celebrities including Kristen Bell and Kumail Nanjiani have shared their dopplegangers.
Now the Atlanta Hawks have played around with it, too. The sports organization used its players' media day photos to see who Google thought they most resembled.
Some of the players were matched with notable figures, such as DeAndre' Bembry with Jimi Hendrix, Miles Plumlee with Henry V and Isaiah Taylor with John Coltrane.
The subject pairings for Mike Muscala, John Collins and Dennis Schroder were much more obscure, getting matched with “portrait of an unknown French Nobleman,” “unknown” and “man,” respectively.
To get started, open the Culture app and scroll down in the main feed until you see the virtual card for painting matching. Google says in the app it will not keep your selfie for longer than it takes to find a match.
