TikTokers are going viral with their videos pranking their friends and family using the closed eye filter that’s blowing up on the app — here’s how to try the effect out for yourself.
Video platform TikTok has a huge number of different filters and effects that can be used to enhance your posts, many of which have gone on to spawn viral trends that have taken over the app.
One of the latest filters to blow up on the app is the closed eye filter, which as the name suggests, makes it appear as though the person using the filter has their eyes closed, even if they are open in real life.
The bizarre filter immediately prompted users to start pranking their friends and family with it.
One trend using the effect sees users applying the filter to their face, and having someone situated behind them so they are also looking at the camera.
