Here's How To Get 'The Office' Filter On Instagram To Find Your Character

Specialty Instagram filters are having a real ~moment~. First, there was the Disney Instagram filter, which tells you which Disney character you are, and now The Office filter is circulating on the 'Gram, offering up users their Dunder Mifflin counterparts. Although these filters are increasing in popularity, it may take a little bit of effort to locate them. To help you get in on the fun, check out how to get The Office filter on Instagram, so you can channel your inner Dwight, Kevin, or Michael.

The Office filter, which was created by @anton.alpen, is similar to other filters that randomly select a character for you in a fun AR spinner above your head. Using the filter is super easy. Once you've selected the "which Office person" filter on the 'Gram, you'll just need to record a video in selfie mode within the Instagram Camera. Once you begin recording, the filter will begin its scroll and continue until it lands on a character. It's all random, which means one try could get you Dwight Schrute, while another could get you Pam Beasley or Jim Halpert. If you want to match with a specific character, you can keep trying until it happens. However, you can't join in on the filter fun until you've actually located the filter yourself.
