Moment Members Of The Maasai People See Snapchat Filters For The First Time
| Last updated
Footage has been shared showing the moment a group of Maasai men were shown Snapchat filters for the very first time.
Fashion stylist and photographer Kate Katumbi, from Sydney, Australia, was visiting the Maasai Mara reserve in Kenya last year, when she whipped out her phone.
As a way of breaking the ice with the group of strangers, the 22-year-old opened up the popular app and demonstrated the face filters to them.
And they loved it.
The video shows the men bursting out laughing as they look down at the screen and watch their faces morphing into different shapes and sizes.
The group can be seen taking it in turns to look into the camera, their faces becoming deformed and covered with dog filters.
But they aren't the only ones who have gotten a kick out of it. Last year, journalist and TV presenter Louis Theroux shared a photo of him using the app's 'gender swap' filter for the first time. And it was brilliant.
Posting it on Twitter, he wrote: "Morning!"
After sharing the picture of himself, people responded thick and fast. Some compared him to Big Bang Theory actor Mayim Bialik, aka Amy Farrah Fowler. Others weren't so keen, but the majority absolutely loved it.
One said: "Best photo on the internet ever! Twit twoo."
Another added: "This has made my morning".
But it wasn't just Louis who had a little too much fun with Snapchat's new filter, either. One guy took it to another level when he set up a Tinder account dedicated to the female filter version of himself.
Jake Askew, from Norwich, UK, said he decided to set up the account because he thought he looked 'unreal' with the filter and it soon transpired that loads of blokes agreed.
More than 1,650 'liked' his profile and he received between 300-400 matches. WTF?!? Here I am struggling to bag myself just one.
'Jess' - who is actually Jake - also revealed that lots of blokes got in touch to make some rather indecent proposals.
Speaking to LADbible, the 20-year-old said: "One chap asked 'Are you a piece of art because I want to nail you up against the wall'. Another talked to me about his 'pork sword' and one bloke simply asked me to 'sit on his face'. I didn't let anyone know about it, I'll keep em guessing."
