According to several reports, the trend kick-started when Twitter user @ctrlzhara shared a black-and-white picture of actors Kiera Knightly and Cillian Murphy and claimed that the pair was her grandparents in Basra, Iraq in 1960.

However, the picture was in fact, a behind-the-scenes shot of the period drama ‘The Edge of Love’.

The tweet soon went viral, with many coming up with their versions of it. Actors, singers, politicians, and even reality TV personalities have all been featured in the trend.
