There seems to be a mad new craze on the horizon every other day, and the #trustfallchallenge appears to be the freshest.
The bizarre trend is taking Twitter by storm, and essentially involves falling onto a random friend or stranger and hoping that they’ll catch you – only without giving your chosen ‘catcher’ any warning whatsoever, reports Mashable.
As you can imagine, teens from across the globe are going absolutely wild for the craze and are filming themselves performing the stunts and uploading them to social media – with some getting over 3,000 retweets.

Fortunately, while being mildly risky, the craze isn’t too dangerous, unlike the Iron Liver challenge which went viral last month.
