Belly Button Challenge is the new craze in the internet after Ice Bucket Challenge and Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge.
The Belly Button Challenge challenges people by reaching around their back and touching their belly button to prove they’re slender enough to do it.
This trend has exploded on Chinese social media. Over the weekend, selfies of women stretching their arms around their bodies to do the “belly button challenge” went viral, rising up to 21 million hits for the hashtags.
The test was derived from an unknown study from United States and allegedly it determines whether you need to lose weight.
In some news sites, they have already continued to tell netizens, that this challenge is totally a sham. Whether or not a person can complete the action, it has something to do with the flexibility and arm length more than anything else.
Recently, Charlie Charlie Challenge also became a trend in the internet. It is like the supernatural version of the magic 8 ball. It conveys the player to summon a Mexican spirit.
The directions of playing Charlie Charlie Challenge is just simple. Players must get two pencils and lay one on top of the other in a cross shape on a sheet of paper. Then they will write yes or no in the resulting of quadrants and ask, “Charlie, Charlie are you here?” or “Charlie, Charlie, will you come out and play?”
The players will know that the demon, Charlie, is present in the players’ house if the top pencil moves and lands on “yes” and the players can ask more questions.
These two games are popular to the netizens today. It’s up to the people if they’ll accept or ignore it.
