If you ever took to Google‘s search engine to ask a random question about a celebrity, then you’ll be happy to hear of the tech giant’s latest initiative to make information not only more accessible but digestible. Starting today in the US, you can type in a question for a celebrity into Google’s search bar and receive your answer directly from the source in the form of selfie-style videos.

Google is currently piloting this new feature on mobile with answers coming from Priyanka Chopra, Will Ferrell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez, Kenan Thompson, Allison Williams, Nick Jonas, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Yeo and Dominique Ansel. In the company press release we’re told “Today’s announcement gives you a snapshot (or should we say selfie-shot) of what’s to come, but in the next few months, you may see more videos as you search for your favorite personalities.” One of the examples listed asks Will Ferrell if he can play the drums, to which he responds, in video, “Yes, I do know how to play drums, as long as someone is playing drums off camera and I move the sticks like I can play drums.”

Check it out for yourself, then let us know what celebrity question you’re dying to ask in the comments section below.
