A Bunch Of Trolls Are Trying To Convince People To Take The #PlasticBagChallenge

Here we go agaaaaiiinnnnnn.

Posted on June 5, 2015, at 8:36 a.m. ET

Thursday night, users on the anonymous messageboard 4chan came up with the idea of the #PlasticBagChallenge. It’s a parody of the #CharlieCharlieChallenge, which trended last week.

The details of the challenge are a little different depending on which tweet you see, but basically, if you put a plastic bag over your head it'll somehow raise money for wildlife charities.

28 seconds from me, £25 donated to #WWF UK #pbmovement #plasticbagchallenge #plasticmovement

In this version the WWF will donate $5 for every minute you can keep the bag over your head.

#plasticbagchallenge doing this tomorrow!! will film it. #savetheanimals 🐢💜

People even started "challenging" other people to make it look like more of a thing.

I challenge @timmyfaubus26 @sainmathew25 to do the #plasticbagchallenge for 5 minutes nonstop

And there are claims of celebrity endorsements.

Angelina Jolie supports the #plasticbagchallenge too!

4chan users found this video from February of a guy asphyxiating himself with a plastic bag and started sharing it again.

And a few people even posted photos.

So if you see this, just remember, it's fake, and you definitely shouldn't put a plastic bag over your head.

I made 5 minutes, how long will you last?!?! #PlasticbagChallenge
