If you thought the ice-bucket challege wasn’t enough to show how crazy and wacko our generation has become, lo and behold! We now have the infamous belly button challenge – which is raising many an eyebrow due its ridiculous nature.
The challenge, however, continues to explode in China making it the number one trending topic on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter.
The challenge involves attempting to reach around one’s back and touch one’s belly button to prove one is svelte enough to do so. This is one challemge Mr. Stretch from Fantastic Four wouldn’t lose!
The challenge has now reached more than 130 million hits, attracting even men with huge, rotund beer bellies. Critics and health experts, however, are harshly condemning it because they claim it’s only creating a negative body image. The only thing such a challenge proves is that you have long, flexible arms or you stretch a lot imparting you with superelastic skills.
This wasn’t the only crazy fad to go viral. There was the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge a few months back: a choice between sticking one’s lips into a shot glass, then sucking to “plump that pout” like Kylie or — not doing that.
