The same age group who was challenged to eat Tide Pods this year has a new challenge to take on — and it takes place at a craft store.
Teenagers across the nation are challenging each other to go into Hobby Lobby and use fake flowers, bright lights and other store accessories to take what appears to be a professional photo.
The name of this challenge? The Hobby Lobby Challenge, of course.
The catch? The photos cannot look like they were taken in a craft store.
Never miss a local story.
The Hobby Lobby Challenge is thought to have started in late January when Kelsey Maggart tweeted out photos of a friend posing with props in Hobby Lobby.
“shooting in hobby lobby is the new thing now am I right,” she tweeted on Jan. 26.
“I did the Ugly Location Challenge at the end of November and it blew up on social media, and then a couple weeks ago my friend and I said we wanted to shoot in the Hobby Lobby floral section, so he went to a Hobby Lobby and I went to a different Hobby Lobby and we both did a shoot, and when I posted it that shoot took off on social media too,” Maggart told BuzzFeed News.
Now other teen photographers have followed her lead and dubbed it the “Hobby Lobby Challenge.”
“We did that Hobby Lobby Challenge,” Jalynn Wynn tweeted. “aka took these pics in Hobby Lobby. but it was basically an enchanted garden ya know lol. fun timez.”
If you want to take this challenge on a Sunday, you’ll have to make some modifications because Hobby Lobby is closed on Sundays.
“#hobbylobbychallenge in a Michaels bc hobby lobby is closed on Sundays,” one person tweeted.
“#hobbylobbychallenge accepted at Michaels via iPhone 7,” Kathy Films tweeted.
Another teenager took the challenge to Walmart.
“Wya #hobbylobbychallenge ? @Walmart got it in the bags,” she tweeted.
