Are you trying to flex on your friends by trying to look cooler and pretend you know people in higher places such as celebrities and influencers? Well, FlexTime is here to save make this happen. This app will convince your friends that you are buddies with celebrities like LeBron James, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ariana Grande, and Maisie Williams plus up to 40 celebrities and influencers and you can, in fact, FaceTime them at any moment.
FlexTime, an app made by Brooklyn-based creative agency MSCHF, does this by simulating a FaceTime call using clips from live streams and Instagram Stories posted by various celebrities. The videos are saved using a screen recorder which are then played as standard FaceTime calls.

You can then screenshot the video to share on social media platforms to make it evident that you can contact influencers and celebrities any time you feel like as a weird flex as make your friends jealous. The videos look strange by themselves as they have rounded edges at the inset facecam that slightly overlap the status bar making them look unreal
If the corners of your frame were rounded, I would have totally falled for it 😂
