TikTok is constantly offering ways to help people make their content more entertaining, from the double screen and green screen effects to filters that funnily distort your face, make you invisible, or turn you into a Disney prince or princess. The latest hottest thing that is taking over TikTok is a filter that makes everything look retro, as if it was recorded on an old VHS. It is supposed to bring your videos back to the nostalgic '90s. However, TikToker Berta Alonso used this opportunity to take this retro filter to another level and started a new viral trend that might take a while to figure out.

On April 11th, Alonso uploaded a video inviting people to "use the retro filter and see what happens." In this video, she tricks people into thinking the filter is capable of actually making her mother look 30 years younger rather than just adding a vintage visual effect. But in reality, in the first part of the video, her mum appears without a filter before Alonso takes over dressed identically and with the retro filter applied. The uncanny similarity between mother and daughter makes it look as if the footage is actually taken from her mother's youth.

The video has been watched 9.3M times, has received 1.8M likes, and inspired many children and parents around the world to try and make their own wholesome videos. We've collected some of the best, so let us know what you think of this heartwarming trend in the comments!
