The Drive-By Dunk Challenge Is A Real Thing And You Need To See It

People are doing drive-by dunkings on random peoples' driveways and posting the videos on Instagram


Here's a horrifying fact: the Ice Bucket Challenge craze was three years ago. Three whole years, people.

Still, when Hollyoaks actors start nominating the entire Casualty cast, and Justin Bieber has poured water over his head several times, you knew it was time to move on.

Has there been a cold bucket shaped-hole in your life? Probably not. But here's a fun internet thing for you anyway. If you hadn't noticed, there's a hashtag on social media floating around called #DriveByDunkChallenge.


In a nutshell, people are doing drive-by dunkings on random peoples' driveways. We're not exactly into basketball, but the results are pretty magical.

According to Sports Illustrated, the craze started when a guy who goes by 't.currie' on Instagram posted a video where he dunks on hoops in strangers' driveways.

Bitch I'll dunk on your court 🏀 #DrivebyDunkChallenge

The post, which was uploaded two days ago and has already racked up over 50,000 views, caught the attention of another popular Instagram account called House of Highlights. They uploaded said video and have begun posting other people's dunking attempts

So, really, it's taken 48 hours for this thing to take off. Impressive stuff.

Seeing as it's Friday, please enjoy teens doing fun things because they don't have to worry about whether the rat in the kitchen of the over-priced flat they're renting has taken the bait and died yet.


Not sure if this counts as someone's driveway, but sure.

The trend has reached professional basketball players, too. Here's Anthony Davis doing his thing.
