Before the existence of Instagram and its filters, or the many photo enhancing apps with their beautifying features, is the invention of the photo sticker booth in Japan known as ‘Purikura’.

The ‘Purikura’ serves as an instant photo booth, where individuals can add pretty edits to their shots that are then printed out as photo stickers.

Setting it apart from other ordinary photo booths is its retouching function that automatically fixes the individual’s flaws.

A Canadian YouTube user residing in Japan, Micaela Braithwaite, then decided to experiment with this function to see the extent of retouching that is carried out.

The video acts as an interesting reminder to not take photographs at face value, give it a watch below:
