A 92-year-old man was introduced to Snapchat facial filters for the first time by his granddaughter and his reaction was priceless. He couldn’t quite believe what he was seeing while being transformed from a squirrel to a pug and many other filters. Perhaps the greatest benefit of it all is the sense of self you will discover along the way.

“He is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met and I’m thankful to call him Papa. Every time I see him now, he asks me when I’m going to make him a ‘hound dog with bangs on my phone’ again. He’ll be proud to know that he’s received such a positive response from this video, but I’m sure he’ll be back to complaining about the traffic or the weather soon after I tell him about it,” the proud granddaughter and author of this video said.

It is such a pity more senior citizens do not have developed the taste for filters yet. This is so because of only 2% of Snapchat users fall under the 55+ demographic, and very understandably, because this chunk of the population, at least the majority of it, is only just getting used to the idea of Facebook and Twitter becoming a part of their everyday lives. Thus, introducing them to a new, mobile-only platform at this time is a challenge. In addition, all of the swiping and finger tapping it takes to figure Snapchat out is likely to put off many users, both young and old.

So folks, grab your grandpa’s cell phone and make a short tutorial for him. The happiness and love you will get shining on his face are definitely worth both your time and effort!
