  • Ariel Olivar posted went viral she demonstrates how to do her invisible step dance move

The trick: Pretend you're putting a foot on a box, and then hop over it with the other foot.

The latest weird viral craze taking over social media is the invisible box challenge.

College football player Dontez Hines originated the challenge in August when he tweeted a video of himself miming "stepping over" a box.

American Ariel Olivar shared a mind-blowing video on Friday in which she appears to pat and then step over an invisible box, according to Time.

Others hilariously fail, tripping over their own feet or even falling to the ground.

"People around my school just started retweeting it and I thought it would only go as far as throughout my school, but through the night it just get going, my phone kept blowing up", Olivar said, after explaining the trick to the trick.

The move has a name - The Invisible Box Challenge.

See some of the attempts below and remember safety first.

The basis of the trick is all about jumping with one foot while keeping your "stepping" foot still.

"All his hip stabilizers on the right side are firing on overtime to hold that hip in position", Men's Health fitness editor Ebenezer Samuel said of Hines' video.

The leg that's stepping on the box uses a great deal of hip flexor, glute and core stability. Challenges such as Planking, The Harlem Shake, Ice Bucket Challenge, Mannequin Challenge, among others, have been quite a rage on the Internet, with people enthusiastically participating in them.

If you thought walking on air wasn't humanly possible, the latest fad to sweep the internet will make you think otherwise.
