Challenge the Challenge of the Challenge
So challenges on YouTube are definitely a thing. For one thing, they can definitely go viral – and once they do, they seem like a way to ride the wave, and to get your video seen along with the others. After a certain threshold of people doing it, it then seems like others need to do it or get left out – so it spreads more.
The best and most known challenge of all was the Ice Bucket Challenge, and there are still several elements of that which are above and beyond anything you see with other challenges. In particular, the charity aspect and the challenging someone else to do it next aspect. Those two aspects, however, drew in big name celebrities to get involved.
I think challenges after that have been just trying to strike gold again, to be a “thing” like the Ice Bucket Challenge was. But it hasn’t happened. That, or they’re just a way to do something crazy…
So, there’s doing a challenge to see if it takes off. There’s doing a challenge because it has gone viral. But then… there’s doing challenges because challenges are a thing being done. Enter: Challenge Chalice.
Fine Brothers Entertainment is no stranger to challenges, with plenty of videos of people reacting to challenges and trends, and then some challenges of their own – like their laugh challenges. But here’s a show just doing whatever challenge because: challenge. It’s been amusing so far! Hope you enjoy.
