Watch: Incredible Video Shows Little Girl Aging 70 Years in 5 Minutes

You know those semi-creepy computer programs that show you what you might look like when you get older, simply by adding dark creases to your forehead and bags under your eyes? This is sooooo much better than that.

The reason is that the videographers used a handful of women in the same family, spanning an age range of 70 years, so depict a very slow, very subtle aging process over the course of a five-minute video. In fact, the changes are so subtle that when I first started watching it, I thought my computer was frozen—I literally couldn’t tell that anything was happening until … oh, wait a minute, that little kid looks like a teenager now.

Watch the transformation for yourself below. And here’s more info about how the video came together.
