It is a bit of TikTok magic that sets this filter apart as users can really make their viewers believe that their nose grows as they lie. Some have even gone so far as to distinguish themselves by making their fans believe that the filter actually comes with a lie detector, it is a light-hearted prank.
Video effects like this are not a new thing and effects that alter the appearance of the nose in the video have been around for quite a while but still, this filter is unique due to the added layer of entertainment it brings with the feature to elongate the nose when “lying”.
