An Italian priest accidentally activated video filters while live-streaming a mass during the nation’s coronoavirus lockdown.
The clip, which has been viewed and shared five million times on various different platforms, shows the clergyman activate the steam, step back in front of the altar and begin his service.
Little did he know he accidentally activated the Facebook filters while doing so.
As he attempts to begin his online mass, a digital helmet appears on his head, then a set of animated weights appear before yellow confetti falls around him.
Unaware of the technical difficulties he continues the service with a hat and some sunglasses.

Hopefully, the blunder put a much-needed smile on viewers' faces amid these uncertain times.
