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!

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

Alright ladies and gentlemen, time for a pop quiz.

The first question is, what do the lyrics...

"And I am telling you..."
"Once there was a way to get back homeward"
"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
