A new filter that turns anyone that uses it into a Roblox avatar is going viral on TikTok, with videos using the effect garnering millions of views. Here’s how to try it for yourself.

Aside from dances and challenges, one of the things that TikTok is best known for is its huge array of filters, with new ones constantly being added to the app and going viral.

This can be anything from distortion effects, to beauty filter and green screens, and the userbase is constantly finding new ways to turn these filters into viral trends.

The platform has added plenty of decidedly bizarre effects over the years as well, including things like the Versailles Run filter, and they quickly get everyone’s attention.
