We know how powerful social media can be in making things go viral and also how easily netizens may fall into the trend trap for a couple of hundred likes.
People have done bizarre activities such as dumping ice cold water on oneself or dancing in the streets, not all of these challenges were harmless though, remember the KIKI Challenge?
Well, it seems like 2021 has just delivered a fresher one: the milk crate challenge.
I’m so inspired rn 😭 https://t.co/aunM0MP97t— Lawrence Burney (@TrueLaurels) August 22, 2021

Here’s a clip that plays the action in reverse and gives it a “Christopher Nolan” flavour. Did you see that coming?

However, not everyone aced the challenge. After a few videos recorded some dangerous falls, health professionals expressed grave alarm. As a result of these falls, fatal injuries might occur.

The crate challenge is so painful to watch 😭. It was funny at first but all these people with limited insurance risking their health for a couple hundreds. 😩— Halle Berry (@Tweet_MANDAtory) August 23, 2021
The crate challenge gives me tremendous anxiety. It’s crazy to think how tame the @tide pod challenge seems in comparison.— Jack Ferris (@JFerris714) August 24, 2021
Rock on, America. We’re doing great.
People doing this like they have the best health insurance… #milkcratechallenge pic.twitter.com/rvHEObBjKC— The Milk Crate Challenge (@MilkCrateClub) August 22, 2021
Safe to say, some were smart enough to share memes only and not actually do the challenge, or wait..
