Comedian Jordan Peele’s horror-comedy Get Out is not only soaring in the box office, but it is now responsible for spawning an epic social media craze. Don’t worry, there aren’t any spoilers involved.

The #GetOutChallenge follows social media users as they recreate the scene where a disheveled Chris, played by Daniel Kaluuya, is frightened by Walter, played by Marcus Henderson, who sprints towards him at a extremely fast rate of speed.

NBA ballers Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard put their speed to the test as participants in the new challenge.

Other social media users put their own unique spin on the challenge doing everything from participating alongside their friends to dressing up as 1990’s superheroes.

While some delivered spot on recreations of the scene, others were proud to share their hilarious failures.
