Snapchat Unveils Sponsored Lens That Turns Users Hillary Clinton

Snapchat, the popular self-destructing photo messaging service, is currently featuring a sponsored lens that turns the user into a pantsuit-wearing Hillary Clinton. When a person opens their mouth, the filter changes the color of the pantsuit from red, to blue, to white, and also changes the message displayed at the bottom of the image.

Being the token "office millennial," I tried it out:

The lens is sponsored by Priorities USA, a PAC that supports Hillary Clinton.

Hillary for America is also sponsoring a geofilter featuring the "I'm With Her" H logo used during the campaign.

Snapchat has been used by both major candidates during the campaign. During the RNC, Hillary for America paid for an anti-Trump filter, and Trump bought a "Crooked Hillary" filter during the first debate. Many Snapchat users realized they could put animal ears and "face swap" the two candidates during the debates.

So far, we haven't seen a "Trump Yourself" filter or lens, but there's still time.

As for me? I think I'll be sticking with the dog face until further notice.
