The Drinking Mirror App is an anti-alcohol tool designed by the Scottish government in a bid to reduce binge drinking. The app uses editing software to show heavy drinkers what their face will look like after ten years of hitting the bottle. It can also be used to uglifiy annoying celebrities — which could be a far more effective strategy when it comes to wild tweens.
Today, our colleagues at Business Insider used the Drinking Mirror App to find out what Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber and other starlets would look like if they continue partying into the next decade. Wrinkles, droopy eyes, saggy jowls, reddened cheeks: the results aren’t pretty.
While the BI article was supposed to be a bit of fun, we think it could be used as an effective booze deterrent for celeb-obsessed teens. As we recently learned to our peril, Bieber fans take the pop star and his music incredibly seriously. Showing your kids what booze can do to their beloved idol could scare them sober for life.
Kotaku editor Mark Serrels happens to be Scottish like the app, so we figured we’d stick him through the digital wringer to see what he’s going to look like in ten years. (If you’re reading this Mark, it was all Angus’ idea!)
