Marine Goes Viral After Sharing Video Turning His Hand Over Without Moving His Wrist
A US Marine has accidentally gone viral after starting the internet's latest challenge by turning his hand over without moving his wrist.
Jayson Deland posted his discovery on TikTok, where it's been viewed a massive 14.6 million times and inspired over 10,400 copycat videos.
Jayson said: "After trying it, I immediately thought it was so funny and filmed myself doing it in the mirror. Right after I posted the video online because I thought that everyone needed to try it for themselves too."
TikTok users appear to be blown away by this newest viral craze with one commenting: "This is the most important thing I've learned today."
"Everyone is here doing this when they watched this video," another user said.
This is just one viral challenge that's ended up doing the rounds recently. The last one was the gymnast who left people in a state of confusion when she did something the majority of us aren't capable of doing.
It has been dubbed the 'New Flex challenge' and it was created by Jax Kranitz - an incredibly trained gymnast.
Basically, you lie down flat on the floor with your legs straight and your hands behind your back. Then, you've got to try to stand up by bringing your legs out far enough to get up onto your feet without taking your hands from behind your back.
Sounds simple enough? It definitely isn't.
She shared her efforts on Instagram with the caption: "New flex challenge??? Tag a friend that you think can do this."
Know anyone who is able to do this? Nah, me either. It looks painful and it's not that clear whether a human should be able to move their legs in that way.
Since she shared the video, her 80,000 or so followers have been registering their surprise at the level of flexibility that she has.
One person wrote: "Just saw this on TikTok. You're a beast. I can hardly touch my toes." Another said: "You're like an All American Gymnast tho! I ain't blessed like that."
Another of Jax's Instagram followers offered: "I'd die if I tried this." With a fourth adding: "Anyone that understands anatomy knows this is possible but rare. The human body is amazing."
We think we'll stick to turning our hand over without moving our wrist. Cheers.
