After every other week, there is one new kinda stupid thing that becomes so in trend, that folks across the globe lose their shit over it. Adding up to the quantum of so-called viral challenges, the newest addition is the #FallingStars challenge.
The baddass folks, or might I say ‘filthy rich Russians’ were so fed up of showing-off their riches in boring way. They thought that it might be cool to show off their lavish possessions in a little bizarre way that could appeal wider audience. And of course, they came up with this idea that was out of the box.
Hence, the blame for sparking this trend goes only and only to Russia.
What was the idea behind Falling Stars Challenge?
Well, to begin with, hats off to the person who brainstormed about the idea where Russians would pretend to fall off from their lavish planes, yachts, super cars and what not. Because I guess even he/she didn’t know that this challenge would be taken up so seriously.
Who knew? Right?
But as soon as a few pictures were posted online and people started to nominate others in this challenge, the whole ordeal became a trend overnight.
So what are the people up to?
Ever since this challenge started surfacing on social media platforms, people wholeheartedly accepted this. And the best part about this challenge is that you get to show off the things that you own. Even though you might not be rich AF, you can show whatever you possess.
Because that’s what people did. They kinda trolled the Russians. Rather than showing off any kind of riches, they showed off their fridge and groceries to makeup and books and even public places like metro and shopping malls.
Be it gym wear, accessories, kitchenware, jewelry, books, shoes or personal belongings, you can arrange it artfully around you and click the picture to complete the challenge.
Pictures like- people falling in the gym with equipment placed all around, falling off near the pool, on the yacht have already received several likes. And there is no doubt that it is sweeping the internet with its craze.
I have compiled the best falling stars images so far so that you know exactly what to do to complete this challenge.

Having said that, I am kind of relieved by this challenge because it doesn’t really require you to fall off from anything. All you need to do is pretend. I hope there aren’t any deaths associated with this challenge.
