Invisible box challenge is actually pretty amusing

Invisible box challenge is actually pretty amusing

It's the latest video sensation to sweep feeds around the globe!

After trends like the Ice Bucket Challenge, bottle flip challenge, mannequin challenge, cinnamon challenge, here is the new online fad that involves nothing the "invisible box". It's a pretty nifty trick once it's perfected.

However, it was the video posted by Ariel Olivar, a cheerleader for Manval High School in southeastern Texas, which really got the proverbial ball rolling. Head here to take a look back at the trends that have taken over Instagram this year!

We are living among angels, people.

For those unaware, it constitutes pretending to tap the surface of a phantom box before placing your foot on top of it and then using your other foot to step on and over it.

While a small minority seem to have effortlessly mastered the trick, others fail hilariously, with some tripping over their own feet and others just falling straight over. The jumping part is easy; managing to keep your foot that still in the air is definitely not!

The trend first started this summer when Dontez Hines, a defensive back at Anderson University in IN, demonstrated the stunt in a viral video on Twitter. Sounds simple, right? No. "I had my friend record me... he ended up posting it on his Snapchat".

While we sit and watch that video on loop, there were several others who shared their failed attempts to the challenge and honestly, they are hilarious.

HollywoodLifers, have YOU given this dance move a shot yet? "It's weird", his mate told us - after having a go herself.
