The challenge was originally kicked off by comedian @theshiggyshow on his Instagram account, who showed off his dancing skills and inspired netizens to follow his footsteps.
With Drake's "In My Feelings" song blasting on their car's stereo, people leaped out of moving vehicles, danced alongside and jumped back in, all this to complete the challenge. Needless to say, the dangerous challenge led to casualties.
