Face swaps are always gonna be funny but Rellface really takes the cake as the funniest recent TikTok trend. As horrifying as it can be at times, the new face swap videos are incredibly hilarious.
As you know, in these types of videos the expression of the person whose face has been swapped is not swapped, this is what makes this particular trend funny.
Terrell Brown created the trend using his own face and it can be comedy gold when someone uses his face over their own to create videos.
What Is The Rellface Trend?
It is a face swap created by TikToker Terrell Brown. It involves a person using the app to make a video in which their own or someone else’s face is replaced with the face of Terrel.

The name is also based on Terrell’s as ‘Rell ‘ is the second half of his first name. The image used by Brown to create the effect is one of his funniest looks.
How To Do The Rellface on TikTok
It is easy to replicate the video, but there is s slight workaround to be done as the idea has not yet become an official TikTok filter.
As the filter is not available on TikTok yet, you have to use Snapchat. First of all, visit Terrell’s TikTok profile (@relltheremedy).
Proceed to take a screenshot of his Rellface picture and open Snapchat. Inside the app, go to the effects panel and select face swap, after doing so there will be an option with Terrel’s face, pick it and start recording. Next, post it with the #rellface.
You can use the rellface in any creative way you can, but the most popular ones seem to be the ones where the user pranks an unsuspecting victim, or swaps the face of a well-known public figure or politician with Brown’s face,

One of our favorites is wapping the fame of a dog or cat with Terrell’s face. The Tiktoker’s annoyed look makes for a very funny. One of the most hilarious things about the video is that if you choose to prank someone then you don’t have to let them know until the video has been posted.
Especially when someone asks you to record them doing something thinking they are looking cool or when they ask you to take a picture and strike a pose but you swap the face in the picture with Brown’s, it makes for one of the funniest internet pranks in a while.
