The fake news outlet Oakland Unseen pushed out a humorous report last week that Instagram was adding a brand new filter! But this isn’t your run-of-the-mill filter:
When you take a photo at any event in Oakland, Berkeley, or San Francisco with Instagram, Frank Chu will be automatically added to the background of your photo. The omnipresent protester Frank Chu has been at most major events throughout the Bay Area since the 1990s carrying his trademark “12 Galaxies” sign. As of print, he has 144 Yelp reviews and even had a San Francisco bar named after him.
