    There’s a new craze sweeping social media dubbed the “In My Feelings” challenge, in which people dance to the popular Drake song after hopping out of a moving vehicle. Police are warning this can be very dangerous, regardless of whether you’re the driver or passenger.

    Solomon understands people are just trying to have fun but he asks if people are interested in doing the challenge, do it when the car is off, parked and in a driveway or empty parking lot. “Please don’t do it when the car is moving please do it in a safe area,” he said. “We just don’t want to see this one situation gone viral become tragic.”

    Flip flops were the wrong choice for that.

    Shit they’ve been doing this in the ghetto in Oakland for years. Fucking white kids can’t even come up with their own shit.

    Why are all of these things called a challenge?

    the final straw to break the camel's back (so to speak) has to be the selfie tool. Ever since cell phones became inexpensive and since they all seem to come with a high res camera many folks have been spending their life showing the world how wonderful they are. MNore and more it is becoming all about ME (MY)

    But there is a time and place for all things, even a selfie:

    Today's younger generation wants to feel like they are accomplishing something, so rather than just give out the Darwin Award, they get the accomplishment of winning the Darwin Challenge.

    Darwin was gipped. He only sustained scratches on his arm.

    If you weren't doing some serious questionable, stupid shit, you probably weren't having any fun as a young person. Social media has definitely amplified it by creating a larger pool of people to come up with said stupid shit, but really, the only thing differentiating us from these kids is the fact that they're recording it all.

    He did seem him.

    That guy driving the other car is part of this. the guy in red pants was going to jump up on the hood of the car during this dance, but he slipped as he turning to jump and fell instead of jumping.

    The condom snorting, tide eating, dancing out of a moving car, school shooting generation, phone addicts, should move away from social media.

    There we go. We need people to start offering to give 10 people $100 each if they complete 1 school year making no worse than a C+ in any class and don't miss more than 2 days, or if they raise all their grades at least 1 full grade level. That would be a good investment of $1000.

    Everyone is totally missing the point. The GOAL of dancing is to get hit by a vehicle.


    See!

    Drake makes wanna be black music for white people. Drake is one of the softest ghost written rappers out there. I don’t really like rap but this whole thing screams ghost ridin’ rip off.

    Also all these keke videos I’ve seen all feature little suburban girls trying to look sexy while they dance in the street. Give me real Thizz Entertainment rap at least.

    Oakland sideshows are featured in those videos and are way less lame. Treal TV volume one is a good example if you’re interested.
