Another Italian Priest Livestreams Mass Without Realising He’s Got Filters On

I’m not really sure what the deal is with two Italian priests now being caught on camera live-streaming mass with a series of hilarious filters on their heads.

It seems a little strange that one could get things so wrong – let alone two.

Perhaps someone is playing a bit of a prank here.

Who knows – but if sparks a smile or a laugh we’re all for it in these tough times.

This particular unnamed man of worship could be heard addressing his congregation that were watching on from home in self-isolation whilst transforming into a variety of different characters including a wizard and a boxer.

The video clip was later shared to Twitter and has been viewed more than 68,000 times, leaving many in stitches.

The priest went on to scold whoever was ‘pulling a prank’ on him despite it providing some much-needed light relief for many in the Twittersphere that are currently in lockdown.

My personal favourites are the ones in which a flashlight casts an eerie looking ominous mask type filter across his face and the one where he sports a massive pair of googly eyes.

The priest obviously isn’t that up with all things tech as he accuses someone of ‘drawing’ on his face after the filters began popping up on his livestream.

He clearly wasn’t amused.

He said: “The person who keeps ‘drawing’ on my face obviously likes to make jokes”.

Surely, that would involve someone hacking his phone right?

But at least Twitter was entertained as besides keeping faith that things will get better we’re all definitely in need of a good laugh.

One Twitter user said: “That was great. I think it was just what everybody needed”.

Whilst another added: “Holy mother! This had me rolling on the floor laughing my a** off!”.

We doubt it was quite what the priest was hoping for but at least (if somewhat unwittingly), provided us with a bit of a giggle.

Earlier in the week, another priest fell fool of the filter parade during his livestreaming of mass and has since racked up a staggering 7.4m views on Twitter.

The filters include something that looks like a Transformers helmet, dumbbells and a gangster hat.

He evidently didn’t clock the mistake at first but he really suits the hat.

Commenters have taken in their droves to social media with one saying: “’By mistake’. He just doubled his holy power”.

Another added: “Hahaha thank you so very much I needed that laughter”.

On Reddit, the clip was shared to r/Funny: Reddit’s largest humour depository.
