Some video challenges go viral because of the dangerous stunts people do. Others are, well, not quite that dangerous.
Here are 6 videos (that you’ve probably never seen) of people doing completely harmless challenges, just to prove that they can:
Best part: dance at 0:05.
Remember planking, owling, coneing, batmaning, etc? There was a whole fad of coming up with a new ______ing stunt to put on YouTube. The best (worst) thing by far to come out of that, however, was probably the British trend of milking:
2. Russian McDonalds rap
Best part: the manager really doesn’t care at 0:45.
You might have seen the original video of a guy rapping his McDonald’s drive-through order. That latent viral hit spawned a number of imitations, however, including the Russian rapper KReeD:
3. Serenading random people
Best part: people joining in at 0:55
Obnoxious/funny to see how people just patiently wait for the guy to finish.
4. Chugging random things
Best part: bar at 1:50 (mild gross warning)
Another milk-related video challenge. Pretty sure this is named after the David Letterman segment “Will it float?”
This is apparently a thing – just don’t do it on a footbridge over a trafficked road.
5. Holding hands with strangers.
Best part: akwardness at 3:20.
How do people react to someone randomly grabbing their hand at the mall?
6. Omegle dance party
Best part: Drake Starbucks hands at 0:44
Assuming 75% of the video for this was cut out (if you’ve ever used Chatroulette/Omegle you know why).
