'Invisible Box Challenge' is taking over the internet

'Invisible Box Challenge' is taking over the internet

A brand new day, a brand new social media challenge, but we have to say, this one is pretty cool and it's now taking the Internet by storm.

American Ariel Olivar shared a mind-blowing video on Friday in which she appears to pat and then step over an invisible box, according to Time. In a second video, she pretended to fall over when her friend "kicked" the invisible box!

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.

Others hilariously fail, tripping over their own feet or even falling to the ground.

"The video was my third time trying it", she wrote on Twitter.

"I had no idea it would ever get this big", Ariel said. "The technique is to bring the one leg higher than the other as if you're actually stepping over a box". There has been a new entry to the long list of time-wasting sensations taking the internet by storm.

In one of the first instances seen of this trick, back in August 2014, the video has been viewed nearly 889,000 times. Star Trek actor William Shatner tweeted about the challenge, saying "And BTW don't ask me to do the invisible box challenge; the answer is no".

'All [the] hip stabilizers on the right side are firing on overtime to hold that hip in position, ' he said.

The leg that's stepping on the box uses a great deal of hip flexor, glute and core stability.

If you thought walking on air wasn't humanly possible, the latest fad to sweep the internet will make you think otherwise.
