2021 was a year of wild pop culture moments. Yes, of course there was Kravis...and Kim and Pete, but also remember how, overnight, you couldn’t stop cry-singing along to a song about getting your driver’s licence and you were suddenly obsessed with High School Musical: The Musical: The Series drama? It’s been a weird year, and I think I speak for the entire internet when I say that I am fully ready for a fresh freaking start.

But before we close (er, slam?) the door on 2021, we deserve to celebrate. Which is why Cosmopolitan US made you a lil New Year’s Eve party treat, whether you’re having an at-home shindig with a few friends or keeping it fully virtual this year. It’s an AR (yeah, that stands for ~artificial reality~) filter so you can toast with your crew no matter where you are.

Nugget Cheers™ has officially entered the chat.*

*Fine, the ™ is only for fun, not for real.

Here’s how it works. The filter is made for you to use on Instagram or Messenger. If you’re using Instagram, here’s what you do:

  1. Start a video call with whoever you want. Remember: You both have to be following each other.

  2. Tap the Effects smiley.

  3. Swipe over to Group Effects.

  4. Click on the chicken nugget icon and enjoy.

And if you’re using the Messenger app, follow these instructions:

  1. Start a video call with whoever you want.

  2. Tap the smiley face to open the effects tray.

  3. Select Group Effects then click on the chicken nugget icon.

No NYE celebration is complete without the weirdly perfect pairing of champagne and chicken nuggets, amirite? So pop some IRL bubbly and let’s get ready to count down to 2022!
