However, the newest dance craze took the ‘net by storm after University of Maryland athletes Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley saw the video and performed their own rendition and  hours later, voila! We now have “The Running Man Challenge” which some may view as harmless fun, or a slap in the face to the original late 80s early 90s dance.

“I woke up and these guys—the Maryland basketball players—they did it,” said Vincent.
