Snapchat Now Has a Pikachu Filter

There’s a Pikachu-themed Snapchat filter, and it’s very cute.

Snapchat filters have now become part of the internet lexicon. Wondering why you kept seeing videos of that weird dancing hotdog all over Twitter? That was a Snapchat filter. Today Snapchat has debuted another filter primed for maximum pop cultural saturation, featuring Pikachu. You know, the Pokémon. Here’s an example of how it works, featuring my face.

The popular yellow rat thing will come and kiss your face when you open your mouth, and then electrocute you, which seems a bit hostile. Still, I think I look pretty adorable with rosy cheeks and ears. I bet you also look really cute with this filter—show me in the comments.
