You can see it at about 0.58 in the trailer below:

It’s actually really scary in the context of the film, but taken out of it, it’s admittedly maybe a bit silly. This is something that people the world over have clearly noticed, and as with most things nowadays, they have applied it to an “internet challenge”.

Make sure you catch Get Out in cinemas March 17.
