In the past years, many of us got hooked with various challenges kick-started by other countries online and tried to embark on the trend. But this 2019, we’re able to come up with our own challenges that totally made rounds not only on social media and among ordinary people, but also on television and with local celebrities riding on the bandwagon.
Just like It’s Showtime, which never fails to make the hosts, contest judges, guest performers and co-hosts ‘sample’ their own takes of every popular challenge – from the face-distorting yet rib-tickling “Dalagang Pilipina” and “Binatang Pilipino,” up to the groovy “Mathematics Dance Challenge”
Popularized by amateur dance troupe IconX hailing from Tayabas, Quezon, the dance craze was a brainchild of Geodetic Engineer Maezon Abella. In his interview in Rated K last May 29, he recalled that it began as a part of a school activity. If you’ve been dreading the said academic subject, this viral bop might help you overcome it and even enjoy it.
