The Internet holds many mysteries and today, we’ve learned the truth behind that creepy gif of Emma Watson peeling off her face to reveal Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara under the mask.
According to the Huffington Post, the GIF was originally sourced from a YouTube video called, “Emma Watson Unmasks” (above). The video in question was uploaded on March 6, 2014 by curveballbe and has been viewed over 200,000 times.
It was created by cleverly overlaying the actresses’ faces using the power of computer magic onto the original video below.
The video is of silicon mask seller Kerry Johnson putting on a full head and torso female mask and then removing it. According to her site, she’s been selling medical grade silicon masks from Seattle since 1996.
So that’s that. Neither Sofia Vergara or Emma Watson are witches nor do they have superpowers. Case closed.
