Another trend has taken the internet by storm as people prank their loved ones with a filter going around on TikTok.

Published on the video-sharing platform, many users are sharing their family and partners' reactions to a new filter that makes it look like the person's eyes are closed when in reality, they are not.

In a viral post shared by @siskydame, their partner pranked them by using the filter on them right when they were waking up from a nap. The man was confused as to why he believed that his eyes weren't open in his reflection. The popular video has received over 76,000 likes and 740,000 views.

"I got scared for him," a user wrote.

"Nooooooo I would be panicking the same," one user commented.

"Why did I unlock a new fear after watching this," another admitted.

One TikTok user exclaimed, "this trend is funny [as f***]."

"That's incredibly mean," one said, "I would seriously have an anxiety attack."
