Move out of the way, Mannequin Challenge; the Get Out Challenge is the new in. The Get Out Challenge is a video fad in which the participant films oneself running straight towards the camera as to imitate a scary scene from the 2017 American horror film Get Out. On March 4th, Facebook user Kira Donna posted a Snapchat video of her friend reenacting the movie scene in a neighborhood and a grocery store, which garnered 3.5 million views in just four days. A day after, a single topic blog dedicated to all the #GetOutChallenge videos was created on Twitter. On March 7th, NBA basketball star Stephen Curry posted a video of himself participating in the #GetOutChallenge to his Instagram account, giving a huge boost to the popularity of the meme.
