The latest trend in viral videos is, as per usual, completely unpredictable. This time around, the hottest thing to record is…throwing your sneakers in the air and watching what happens when they land. Well, if your sneakers happen to be Vans.
What’s the point of this seemingly arbitrary “challenge”? People want to see if Vans always do land right-side up like Twitter user @ibelievthehype claims they will.

Soon, everyone else started to believe the hype, too. Before long, the tweet went viral, with Twitter users everywhere posting videos of themselves throwing their sneakers across the room. In most cases, the trick surprisingly worked. Some people tried throwing multiple pairs at once.

For others, it didn’t work out as planned.

Whether or not your Vans landed right-side up, the trick is pretty neat.
