A New 'Fake Plane Ride' Challenge Is Really Taking Off In China

Twitter challenges are some of our favorite things.

Seeing the beautiful citizens of internet come together to play games is kind of fun and magical when you think about it.

You and someone all the way on the other side of the world living in a city you may never even have heard of can totally share a laugh and enjoy the same joke with one another.

You may not be able to play catch together, but you can certainly fake a plane ride.


Yeah, we know that sentence ended on a weird note, but roll with us here.

People in China started a game that the rest of the world is starting to play, and honestly it's pretty great. The game makes light of social media "influencer" culture.

Those pictures looking perfect in exotic locations or on flights to somewhere-you-can't-pronounce that leave people seething with jealousy? Yeah, this challenge is showing us all how easy that is to fake.

The idea is to stage a photo that looks like it was taken out the window of a plane - that's it.

Sounds simple enough, right?

The challenge comes in figuring out exactly how to best "fake" the image. What are you going to use to create the "edge" of the window? What are you going to use for your scenery?

The ingenuity people are using is both hilarious and impressive.

We don't have a lot of examples yet in English-speaking media, but take a look at what we could find.

Hopefully you guys will add some more!






Companies are even using it to promote their products!

Alright guys, you have the knowledge, you've got the ingenuity... show us what you come up with!

A T-shirt worn by a child became a point of contention between two mothers whose kids are in a playgroup together.

They say that some of the greatest comedy springs from the greatest tragedy.

And that sentiment is most certainly true when it comes to Stephen Colbert.

While many know the comedian as a smart, funny, and charismatic late night personality from critically acclaimed shows like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, it may come as a surprise that Colbert has dealt with an incredible amount of loss in his life.

Let's be honest, divorce sucks pretty bad in the traditional sense. There's a lot of heartache and paperwork involved - and that's if it's an amicable divorce. If there's some animosity, the process can be straight up traumatizing - but it's 2018 and we're all about making the best out of the worst, so let's find those silver linings, shall we? Divorce isn't all bad. Turns out, it's gone some pretty sweet bonuses attached.

Full confession, my closest friends often tell me I'm the dumbest genius they know. I breezed through school, handle advanced concepts with ease - and I spent ten minutes looking for my phone in the dark by using the flashlight app on my phone. The saddest part is I didn't even realize how dumb I was being on my own. I tried to recruit my ten-year-old to help me and she just stood there staring at the phone in my hand with the sort of silent pre-teen judgy face you see in sitcoms.

I'm not a people person...

Some of us are gregarious, loud, thrill seeking (often obnoxious) introverts. We love everything and anything social. Are opposite friends are introverts. We look at them and can't help but feel... they just need a little friendly shove into the fun. Not so. Often they are perfectly content in their quiet company of one. Many do have a crippling social anxiety that can drive them to some interesting predicaments when they are thrust into a public situation.
