#JoggingManChallenge brings quirk, humor to the internet

Viner Marlon Webb has been popular for his comedy videos on his Vine channel and on his other social media profiles, but one video is taking off, to the tune of over 11 million views.

The #JoggingManChallenge shows Webb and his friends, who seem to collectively call themselves "The Band of the Bold," jogging with their legs kicking out to the side as they stick their arms out and swing them side to side from their elbows as A-ha's 1985 song "Take on Me" plays.

The video was posted June 12 and, although Webb can be seen in older Vine videos doing a similar version of the walk, it hasn't had a name until recently.

The video has been shared over 197,000 times by people who can't stop laughing at the video.

Two other videos, posted June 28 and July 5, followed the original with "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees in the former, and "Take on Me," have over 3 million and 2 million views respectively, but the original remains the most popular.
