Here’s how to get the Perfect Couple filter on TikTok.

On its own, the Perfect Couple filter isn’t particularly funny. All it does is place a cloud over your face, scroll through random letters of the alphabet, and spit out a result. However, as so often happens on the internet, people are taking this simple app and using it to create truly hilarious videos for TikTok. But how are they doing it?

In order to post your own Perfect Couple video to TikTok, you’re going to have to use Instagram first. Sorry, but that’s the only place where the filter is right now! Luckily, it’s super easy to film an Instagram video, download it, and then upload it to TikTok.

All you need to do is open your Instagram app and swipe over to the Stories option. Scroll through the face filters to until you get to “Browse Effects.” From there, enter the words “perfect couple” in the search bar. Select the Perfect Couple filter (it was created by @rxkyx), then tap the “Try it” button in the lower left-hand corner. Ta-da! You’re now ready to record your video.

After you have your video, tap the download icon at the top of the screen, which will save it to your phone. You could just upload that video to TikTok, but if you really want to follow the TikTok trend, you’re going to need to do a little bit of (easy!) editing.

TikTok users are using their Perfect Couple filter results to make hilarious videos revealing their “true” soulmates. For instance, if the filter lands on R, your soulmate could be Remy from Ratatouille. You get the idea.

To make the joke work, you’ll simply need to edit in a picture of your “soulmate” after the video from Instagram, then post it on TikTok. Something tells us this probably wasn’t exactly what @rxkyx had in mind when they were creating the filter, but we’re very happy that this is where the trend has ended up.
