If you're a fan of The Good Place, you'll want to check out the new themed effect that'll unveil which character you are from the show. If you don't already have it, here's how to get The Good Place Instagram Story filter.

The trending filter was created by the official The Good Place Instagram account: @nbcthegoodplace. It's super simple to use once you've got the filter. Once you've chosen The Good Place filter in your Instagram camera, you'll tap on the selfie mode to take a video. As soon as you start recording, the spinner above your head, which reads "Which The Good Place character are you?" will activate. It quickly scrolls through different characters above your head before landing on a randomly chosen character. There are so many characters you could get, including Janet, Michael, Cindy, or Eleanor. If you're not happy with the character you end up with, don't worry. You can keep activating the spinner as many times as you a the character that makes you say, "Holy forking shirtballs!"

Once you're happy with the result, you can stop recording and save the video before sharing it to your Story or to your friends via DM. Before you get started, of course, you'll need to know how find the filter.
