If you have a habit of watching Instagram stories, you’re likely unable to avoid a Disney-themed filter that has been going viral.
The ‘Which Disney’ filter, produced by photographer and digital content creator Arno Partissimo, is a little animated game that generates a Disney character to users as they look into their selfie cameras. Answers range from Cinderella to Timon from The Lion King and Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
Players have conjectured that the designations aren’t as random as they appear, seeing as how many seem to resonate with their chosen characters. Things got even more suspicious when Zelda Williams, daughter of the late Robin Williams, played the game and was surprised to learn she was assigned with Genie from Aladdin.
In an interview with Insider, Partissimo denied claims that there is more depth to the way the game works, suggesting that it is nothing else but mindless fun.
“There is no artificial intelligence,” he confirmed. “It’s totally random.”
He also recommended for Instagram users who are unhappy with their results to simply try again.
So, it’s now proven that Williams wasn’t matched with a character famously voiced by her father because of her social media data, but that the stars were just aligned at the moment.
To install the filter, open Partissimo’s Instagram page (@arnopartissimo) via the mobile app and select the third tab above his feed, which portrays a face with sparkles on the top right. You’ll see the ‘Which Disney?’ effect right away.
