Taco Bell is letting everyone live out their secret Cinco de Mayo wishes by becoming a taco.

To celebrate the holiday, Taco Bell purchased its first selfie lens that transforms people’s heads into giant crunchy tacos with a dollop of the chain’s Diablo spicy sauce dribbled on top.

The filter — all crunchy head-shell and bulging eyes — is terrifying sane people, and is hit among its younger followers.

Here’s a sampling of reactions, mostly positive:

@leilalalani The taco bell filter on Snapchat is one the scariest things I've ever seen
@kelseyleexx3 I want the taco filter on snapchat to stay forever 🌮😂
While getting a taco at Taco Bell takes minutes, Ryan Rimsnider, senior manager of social media for the Yum!-owned brand, told Digiday creating this took six weeks and was created in-house.
