The "Flashed Face Distortion Effect" via io9 tricks your brain into peripherally seeing beautiful celebs as they might appear in a funhouse mirror. Kevin Bacon does his best Frankenstein impersonation without any photo alteration. Kiera Knightley's cartoon-angular face stands out, and Meryl Streep's complexion turns, well, green.
How does it work?
io9 says: "When cycling through [closely aligned] faces on a computer screen, each face seems to become a caricature of itself and some faces appear highly deformed, even grotesque. The degree of distortion is greatest for faces that deviate from the others in the set on a particular dimension." For example, if a person has a large forehead, it looks waaayyyy large.
