Gender-swapping apps have been quite the rage on social media recently, with netizens and celebs having a field day trying out the filter to see how stars look as members of the opposite sex.
Some of the results were hilarious, but none were as funny as Hongkong actress Cherrie Ying’s attempt at gender-swapping her husband, actor-singer Jordan Chan.
Using a deepfake app, Cherrie placed Jordan’s likeness in various scenes and music videos and put them into a video montage set to Beyoncé's ‘Crazy Right Now’. The clip, which she shared on Instagram last Saturday (Jun 27), showed him dancing in various Beyoncé outfits, like a plunging pink shirt and bun and a feather bustier dress and crown. She even superimposed his face onto Beyoncé's body in her 'Love on Top' music video.
In her caption, the 36-year-old actress, who gave birth to her second son, nicknamed Ho Ho, last month, joked that “perhaps it’s a good thing that we do not have a daughter”.
Stars like Terri Kwan, Janet Chow and Lesley Chiang were amazed at how the realistic the face swaps turned out, while netizens encouraged the mother-of-two to try for a third child, saying, “If you had a daughter, she will look like you.”
This is not the first time Cherrie is taking a jab her husband’s looks.
Jordan, who appeared in the fifth and sixth seasons of Chinese reality series Where Are We Going, Dad?, was completely enamored with Will Liu’s daughter Liu Yu Fu, when they were paired up for a game. The duo charmed viewers with their adorable interactions, which led Cherrie to quip: “It’s not exactly a good thing if a girl looks like her dad”.
Jordan and Cherrie tied the knot on Valentine’s Day in 2010 and welcomed their son Jasper in 2013. She gave birth to baby Ho Ho via Caesarean section last month. The couple said that they have decided to stop at two, and that they will not be trying for a third child.
