This is Dele Alli, a soccer player for Tottenham Hotspur. He's also the man behind an infuriating new internet ~trend~.

At a recent game, Alli threw up this little gesture. It looks simple, right?

Just a fun little finger loop, no big deal.

👌 👁️ Okay, who's still trying this?

Well, NO. It is inexplicably difficult to figure out, and Alli is really enjoying watching people try to nail it.

I don’t know what they’re saying but this is funny to watch 😂

People have been trying out the #DeleAlliChallenge, and there have been more than a few eye injuries along the way.

Smh I been doin this #DeleAllichallenge the whole day 🤦🏾‍♂️ I got it now tho😏

Both Twitter and Instagram are full of people trying it out, sometimes successfully.

Some people make it look easy.

My mother thought I was going psycho but learnt the #DeleAllichallenge 😎😂

Others are still struggling.

To be fair, it's weirdly hard.

And I don't really blame you if you give up.

Here's an entirely unhelpful tutorial.

This is the real secret of how to do it: Make a loop, then move the remaining three fingers down.

The trick is to keep a circular loop even though your fingers are in a state of intense confusion.

So simple.

Productive Day off👌👌 #DeleAllichallenge

Trust because when you get it, you're gonna feel very accomplished.

After like a million tries I finally did it!!!! 😂😂👌🏾 it’s not that hard tbh #DeleAllichallenge
