Someone please alert young Kylie Jenner that her reign as Snapchat King has come to an end. We’ll miss the lip kit swatches and endless “finger-mouthing,” but every good ruler needs to appoint a successor.
Enter Robert De Niro.
At the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival this week, Alex Berry, a finalist in the Tribeca Snapchat Shorts, gave the Oscar winner a quick tutorial in all things Snapchat, like sending photos to friends, distorting your face with a puppy tongue and, duh, working the Coachella flower crown.
De Niro seemed hesitant at first, as Berry explained how Snapchats eventually disappear. But even he couldn’t resist the appeal of the app as the duo tried out different filters. To borrow a word, it’s flawless.
Watch, in a week or two De Niro will have turned into a full-blown millennial, delighting fans by saying, “You talkin’ to me?” as a baby bunny rabbit.
