From college students to TV anchors, everyone’s trying out the latest Internet craze. 

The Cup Blowing Challenge has provoked a new slew of videos on social media. Participants place one cup inside another, with a third cup several inches away. They blow on the top cup, hoping it will jump from one bottom cup to the other.

Many have tried the Cup Blowing Challenge; not all have succeeded. Some used it as an excuse to procrastinate before finals, while others were in the middle of a work break. Still others just wanted to master a new viral trick before their children.

“Just completed first cup blowing challenge!! Yes b4 my kids could do it,” one Twitter user wrote.
