Snapchat dysmorphia: When social media filters mess with our perception

Social media filters are fun! You can look like a puppy dog or a nerdy cat or a fairy princess, or just hot! Like, slightly hotter than you actually are. Like you, but spackled and sandblasted and shaved down until you have a chin sharper than the Matterhorn and the complexion of a cotton ball.

John Mayer Just Took Instagram Filters To The Next Level

We all have that one friend who takes choosing an Instagram filter very seriously. You know, the ones who debate whether to go with the dramatic Brannan or the bright X Pro II for so long that they start to look older than the selfie they’re trying to perfect? Well, today that friend is John Mayer, because the singer did to his face what a Brita filter does to water, or what Grey Goose does to vodka. He filtered the hell out of it:

So good to see my friend Ricky again. It’s been a while.
