People across the world have been hunkered down in quarantine for an extended period of time, which means boredom and anxiety have most certainly set in. To pass the time, there have been a flurry of coronavirus social media challenges. Those challenges range from the mundane, like shooting hoops with laundry, to the skilled, like showing off your dance moves =, to the downright ludicrous, like the handstand t-shirt challenge.
If the name wasn’t already a tip-off, the handstand t-shirt challenge involves putting on a t-shirt while doing a handstand and it sounds like a great way to get seriously injured. Marvel actor Tom Holland might have started it, I don’t honestly know. He did post a video on his Instagram of him huffing and puffing his way into a t-shirt while upside down.
Now, this might be a gift for the Holland stans, but it’s also really freaking extra. Holland tagged his Spider-Man Far From Home co-star Jake Gyllenhaal in the challenge as well as Ryan Reynolds and a few others.
Gyllenhaal took the bait and tied up his long hair so he could also show off his ripped abs and upper body strength.
Anyway, the handstand t-shirt challenge should be left to trained actors or possibly skilled gymnasts, otherwise, it seems like a great way to take a trip to the emergency room.
Here is a fun compilation of the video where Tom Holland is seen doing fun challenges on social media.
