So, there’s a bit in Get Out, which is great btw – you should definitely see it – where a scary man comes running out of the dark in a very straight line towards the camera and then suddenly and violently changes direction and runs off into the night. 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”.

I mean, Forrest Gump was doing this shit yonks ago, but still, at least it’s getting people exercising. 

Make sure you catch Get Out in cinemas March 17.
