First there was dabbing, then there was flossing. Now, a new viral dance trend has arrived: the Triangle Challenge.

The geometrically inspired, three-person move sounds easy enough on paper: Stand in a triangle with your arms locked on each other's shoulders, then take turns jumping into the middle. However, it's not quite as simple as it looks.

The dance, which originated on the TikTok app, recently made its way to Russian social media. Users have been happy to partake with their own attempts.
