Move over Casey Neistat, the internet has a new favourite YouTuber.

Tatiana Subbotina, a 62-year-old living in Saint Petersburg, Russia is slowly becoming a YouTube sensation thanks to her hilarious (and slightly ridiculous) green screen videos.

According to BuzzFeed, Subbotina started making videos of herself while living in Thailand in 2013. She then transitioned to making videos for kids on YouTube and eventually taught herself how to chroma key composite (or as most people call it green screen), and her channel has since taken off in Russia.

Her videos are the perfect amount of cheesy effects combined with adorableness to make the internet fall in love.

"I decided that I too could talk about this [editing videos]," she told BuzzFeed. "So I started making stories on my YouTube channel about how I work with it. I didn't invent anything there, but I try to explain it as simply as possible. It's very exciting and I like it."

Now most of her clips explain how she was able to use chroma keying to put herself on a magic carpet, in a car, ocean, or on a horse. But even if you're not into learning about digital effects, her videos are super endearing.

She even created her very own green screen suit.

Subbotina currently has a little more than 11,000 subscribers, but some of her clips have hundreds of thousands of views.

Mashable has reached out to Subbotina for additional comments.
