As the story goes, when Ahikulu consumed AUAHA WAHIE, a great wave of inspiration came upon the ruler of the digital underworld. Entranced with a fire of creativity, Ahikulu created a custom Instagram filter that would transcend generations. You can access this ancient filter and choose to embody your favorite tiki god by going to Bonfire Red’s Instagram account (@bonfirered) and tapping on the face icon shown below.
