Playing What's the Drive-By Dunk Challenge? Check Out This Summer's Latest Viral Trend

Social media users are trading in their ice buckets and spoonfuls of cinnamon for basketballs this summer.

The latest viral challenge is called the #DrivebyDunkChallenge, in which a driver pulls up to a stranger’s house with a visible basketball hoop outside. The passenger or driver then jumps out the vehicle, runs and dunks the ball in the most creative way possible.

People across the world are posting videos of the new phenomenon on Instagram and Twitter.

The videos show that as long as there is a car, a basketball, a stranger’s basketball hoop, and a recording device present, it’s dunking time.

Dunkers from California, Michigan and even Australia are participating in the fad.
