What's on the phone?! See what terrified Savannah and Willie this morning

Like it or not, the face-swapping craze is upon us, and we can thank — or blame — Snapchat. The popular social media app now allows people to relocate their faces onto someone else's in any given image (or video), and the results are simultaneously hilarious and set to haunt your dreams.

And TODAY anchors couldn't resist giving it a shot! Check out Willie Geist and Savannah Guthrie, who didn't just swap faces but also mugged it up:

And some pairings ... well, it's almost hard to tell exactly what's amiss, like Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez:

Meanwhile, there's at least one swap that should get some folks swooning: "Supernatural" stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki swapped faces to send a message to their fans, and likely sparked a whole new round of fan fiction stories in the process:
