After the risky Skull Breaker, Cha Cha Slide, Salt, and Penny challenge, among others, another hashtag has started gaining the attention of netizens. However, a safer one this time.
What is the Flip the Switch challenge?
The latest one that is doing the rounds on social media is the 'Flip the Switch' challenge. The popular 2018 Drake song Nonstop, which featured the lyric "I just flipped the switch" is being heard playing in the background in all the recent videos. It has already become a favourite of the TikTok users, who have been posting hilarious and creative videos with the hashtag #fliptheswitch.
How to do it?
Two or more participants need to dance in front of a mirror. When the lyrics call for the switch, the light goes off. Once the light comes back, the people will swap the positions as well as their clothes.
