The Wombo Lip-Sync App Is Creating Some Wonderfully Cursed Content
Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda, Björk, the Tom DeLonge cake and Bam Margera sing along to some brutal dance-pop hits
Published Mar 10, 2021Every few months, a new app takes off that is possibly harvesting all of our personal information for nefarious means. But it's so fun and funny that it's hard to care. This time around, it's Wombo.AI — a lip-synching app that provides incredibly cursed singalong visuals.
Wombo prides itself on being the "world's best AI-powered lip sync app," and the goal is to "take a selfie, pick a song, and let WOMBO work its magic." (For what it's worth, the app's privacy claims it only shares users' information with third parties in an effort to make the app run better.)
The songs to choose from include plenty of stupid memeable music, including tracks from Rick Astley, Vengaboys, O-Zone and many others.
Because of its hilariously cursed, uncanny valley of AI, the app has quickly moved past the selfie stage and become a dumping ground for absurdist mashups from internet clowns.
Below, you'll see terrifying mashups featuring the likes of Danzig, Nathan Fielder, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ariel Pink, Neutral Milk Hotel and even that cursed Tom DeLonge cake from the Great British Bake Off.
Dig into the absolutely cursed content below. Is this what you thought the future would be like?
