Everyone's Doing The #RunningManChallenge And It's Fantastic

This dance craze is just so pure and wonderful.

Maryland Terrapins players Jaylen Brantley and Jared Nickens kicked off a worldwide dance craze last month.

They challenged people via their Instagram to do their own videos set to Ghost Town DJ's "My Boo" and it's amazing.

So many people are joining the craze that "My Boo" β€” first released in 1996 β€” has actually reappeared on the iTunes charts.

It started spreading among college athletes, like in this one.

Which was quickly one-upped by Rutgers.

But it didn't stop at the college level; the Dodgers tried one, hoping a giant bag of popcorn would help them stand out.

How do you celebrate the snapping of a 6 game losing streak?!#runningmanchallenge!!!!
