Over and over again, internet users have devised several hilarious and bizarre trends that have set the internet on fire, and the latest one to make that attempt is trying to celebrate celebrities like grandmas.
Now the viral trend involves posting hard-edited or basically black-and-white photos of celebrities and sharing with the caption, claiming to be their ancestors.
According to several reports, the trend began when Twitter user @ctrlzhara shared a black-and-white image of actors Kiere Knightly and Cillian Murphy and claimed the couple were her grandparents in Basra, Iraq in 1960.

The tweet soon went viral, and many created their own versions. Actors, singers, politicians, and even personalities from reality television are all present in the trend.
