Is there anything cooler than sunglasses? Yes. Leather jackets. That one sword move from Shinobi. Anything but vaping. But sunglasses are still pretty high up there.
Inspired by the meme of the same name, the Deal With It bot is a simple web application that takes any photo of one or more faces and animates a pair of sunglasses coming from top of frame to cover their eyes, followed by text that says “DEAL WITH IT.” It works with both solo and group shots, but is unfortunately limited to pictures of real, human people, meaning that cartoon characters like Kermit the Frog and Inspector Gadget won’t work, and neither will animals (I tried). The animations are then hosted on the site, which users can easily link to through Twitter.
Need an example? Here’s perpetual sadboy Drake rocking a pair of classic black shades.
But we can do better. Here’s Drake and Kanye (DraKanye) together:

The bot is more than just a “try your damndest to make Drake cool for once” app, of course, and can easily be used to create new profile pictures or, for the brave, high school yearbook photos. It comes our way from FEMICOM museum founder Rachel Simone Weil, whose previous work includes hacking classic titles like Mega Man 2 (1988) to give them a more feminine makeover and curating museum exhibitions of old school games and toys aimed at girls.
As of now, there’s no way to save the generated images directly to a computer without using screen capture software, but that’s a small price to pay to be able to reach this level of radical:
