Man gets run down while doing the #InMyFeelings challenge in...yes, Florida

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- A Florida man who was hit by a car during his "#KiKichallenge" video is going to be OK, and he has a sense of humor about the situation.

The challenge asks participants to put their own spin on a dance to Drake's "In My Feelings." Some have incorporated a moment where they jump out of a car or dance beside a slow-moving car (something the NTSB has warned the public not to do), but Jaylen Norwood wanted to take it even further. It did not go according to plan.

"You risked your life for a meme," Jimmy Kimmel told him during an interview after the video of the incident went viral.

"It was worth it," Norwood told him. "I'm the most famous guy in Florida."

A woman also suffered a skull injury doing this idiotic challenge according to my Google News feed, sigh...so much dumb out there today.

I would say kids these days, but these are adults who really should know better than some teenager who still thinks they are invincible.

I'm going to start a "Throw your dumb ass off a cliff onto a huge spike" challenge. Everyone who does it will be an internet sensation. Or your money back.

Reminds me of the time the ice bucket challenge sent more people to the hospital than the disease it was raising money for.

My initial reaction was to say it was staged, but he looked like he took a good shot to the head from the bumper. Maybe it WAS staged, and being the idiots that they are, it went wrong.

It was staged. He told the guy to drive at him. He was supposed to jump onto the hood of the car. But he slipped.

Many/most of these accidents are a result of people failing to understand that when viewed from the side the speed of vehicles looks faster than it really is. In most of these successful Shiggy Challenge videos the car is going no more than 2 mph. Just rolling in neutral. But this dumb ass told his buddy to drive 15mph, which doesn’t sound fast, but it is!

"I'm the most famous guy in Florida."
This explains a lot about the state.

15 mph? I once rode on The Convincer. 5 mph hurts. (You only need to watch the first 30 seconds.)

Nick, at first I thought The Convincer was a carny ride. I know that folks have suffered internal injuries in accidents due to the seat belt smashing into the body after a sudden stop...still beats death.
