This year’s latest (and so far greatest) viral sensation has people throwing their Vans sneakers on the floor and filming it. The reason? Twitter user @ibelievethehype uploaded a video that showed her Vans always landing right side up, no matter how she threw them.
Did you know it doesn’t matter how you throw your vans they will land facing up pic.twitter.com/nKVJCncW4H

This sparked a barrage of Twitter users uploading their own videos of them bottle-flipping Vans sneakers. Incredibly, the sneakers landed right side up most of the time.
The “challenge,” which as now has no official name, quickly went viral, with Twitter videos garnering several thousand likes and retweets in just two days. So much so, that any Vans that don’t land facing up were deemed “fake” by those participating in the challenge.
Kids are finally over flipping water bottles. Aaaaand now they’re throwing Vans.
