Some challengers failed miserably, while others managed to find success in the peculiar task.
According to Twitter – because Twitter is Bible – the Broom Challenge allegedly stemmed from a notice released by NASA which claimed that Feb. 10, 2020, was the only day a broomstick can stand up on its own due to a so-called gravitational pull.
As Newsweek reported, the Broom Challenge is similar to the urban myth that every year on the vernal and autumnal equinox, an egg is able to be balanced on its end. The phenomenon was even written into an episode of “The West Wing” in 2003.
Standing an egg upright on a special day and time traces back to China, where it’s believed that the upright egg, which represents fertility, symbolized nature being in balance, according to the fact-checking website Snopes.
Real or not, it hasn’t stopped many social media users to jump on the latest trend, including the cast of “The Talk,” Paula Abdul and DJ Khaled.
“Pajama broom challenge … What are you doing on a Monday Night?!” Adbul tweeted along with a video of herself dancing in front of and around an upright broom. The broom eventually falls onto the floor.
Facts aside, it’s likely the Internet hasn’t seen the last days of the Broom Challenge.
