Bizarre social media trend ‘In My Feelings Challenge’ sees Drake fans leaping out of cars to dance

The latest social media challenge doesn’t involve splashing ice buckets for charity (good) or eating Tide Pods for stupidity (bad) — but it’s still pretty dangerous.

Shortly after Drake released his latest album, fans began celebrating the rapper’s new music by dancing on camera to his current single, a track called In My Feelings.

They’re not just grooving in their rooms, though: Many of them are taking part in what’s being called the #InMyFeelingsChallenge, in which they get out of a still-moving car and dance alongside the open door, as a driver continues to roll down the block and record them on camera.

Yikes! What's even more dangerous is it seems the person in the driver's seat is recording

The challenge wasn’t even inspired by Drake himself, who does no such thing in the music video for the song.

Rather, it’s a spin-off of a video posted by online personality Shiggy, who has 1.4 million followers on Instagram.

On June 29, Shiggy uploaded a clip of himself in a pink sweatshirt and sweatpants, dancing on the street in the dark. It was filmed from inside the car, as Shiggy danced just outside the passenger side door.

He used the hashtags #DoTheShiggy and #InMyFeelings — and it quickly caught on.

Soon, others were posting similar videos of themselves dancing to the song, tuned up to about the same part.

Growing: More and more fans have shared short clips on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag

Beginning: The trend started with Shiggy, an online personality with 1.4 million Instagram followers who did his own version of the dance

Men and women have shared short clips of themselves, which start out inside the car as they sing and move to the music.

They then climb out, leaving the door open, and dance next to the passenger side — as the person in the driver’s seat is presumably recording.

Being on social media, though, many people have upped the challenge, hopping of the car while it’s still moving.

The cars keep rolling down the street as they walk and dance in time to the music beside it.

While the rolling car clips are certainly the most dangerous, some people partaking in the challenge are in fact putting safety first.
