Atlanta Station Does Running Man Challenge

The latest dancing news team video comes from Atlanta NBC affiliate WXIA, which gave its fancy feet a journalistic edge by trying to explain the Running Man Challenge.

“The #RunningManChallenge appears to have started with a few athletes from the University of Maryland when videos started to show up online asking ‘Who wants to battle?'” writes WXIA.

Pop Sugar says the challenge was “made popular by two University of Maryland basketball players, Jaylen Brantley and Jared Nickens, the challenge is simple: do a variation of the running man to an old ’90s hit song called “My Boo” by Ghost Town DJ’s.”


Here’s a version WXIA posted of athletes doing it:
