Did you notice a whole lot more rainbows in your Facebook feed over the weekend?

Well, you were looking at the handiwork of two Facebook interns – a piece of code that more than 26 million people took advantage of for Pride weekend. The rainbow filter was created by two interns at an internal hackathon the company last week, and it became so popular internally that the company asked them to refine the filter for public use, the company said in a statement Monday.

A number of celebrities jumped on board with the trend, including Elizabeth Banks, Leonardo DiCaprio, Andy Cohen, Anne Hathaway and E.L. James.

Arnold Schwarzenegger got in on the act as well, though one fan registered their disapproval, writing “What’s wrong with U [sic] Arnie? I have to unlike,” to which Schwarzenegger replied simply, “Hasta la vista.”
