'Invisible Box Challenge' is taking over the internet

'Invisible Box Challenge' is taking over the internet

Basically, you pretend there is an invisible box in front of you, step on it, and jump off.

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.

Other videos show internet users hilariously stumbling over their feet.

However, many Internet users have been left dazed and confused wondering how the trick actually works.

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 called the invisible box challenge, and if you've tried it yourself, you've probably discovered that the term "challenge" is an understatement.

We even found a wannabee break dancer from Hungary, but he couldn't pull off the move.

Apple Begins Sales Of Unlocked SIM-Free iPhone X In The US
Apple is now selling an unlocked version of its iPhone X that isn't tethered to a specific carrier like Verizon or AT&T . As 9to5Mac reported yesterday, Apple is now offering the option to buy the tenth-anniversary handset without a carrier.

In one of the first instances seen of this trick, back in August 2014, the video has been viewed nearly 889,000 times. Then, you pat it about a foot off the ground (not too high). The jumping part is easy; managing to keep your foot that still in the air is definitely not!

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

"All his hip stabilizers on the right side are firing on overtime to hold that hip in position", Men's Health fitness editor Ebenezer Samuel said of Hines' video.

"You'll notice [the] body rotates towards the leg on the "step" as well".

But the moving leg that hops forward faces a greater challenge.

This not the first trend to go viral.
