2020 has been a difficult year, but fortunately we have the internet community that makes us smile. From TikTok dances to Instagram challenges, there’s always something that inspires creativity and helps us get in touch with the world around us – even if we can’t see many people in person. And the latest internet meme trend has been launched by Reese Witherspoon, the best friend of all dreams.
The star of Little Fires Everywhere went on Tuesday on Instagram to share a laugh and some light fun with a new challenge she nicknamed #2020Challenge. It’s quite simple, choose 9 photos of an actor or actress from nine different roles they’ve played. Then, create a grid collage of the year 2020, starting in January and ending in September, depicting how the year is going. Although only a few days have passed, the trend has quickly taken off and everyone from celebrities to influencers use Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to participate in what has since been renamed the #ReeseWitherspoonChallenge for the woman who started it all.
The Reese Challenge Took The Internet By Storm
Since Tuesday, Viola Davis, Mindy Kaling, Kerry Washington and Jennifer Garner have made a quantum leap. And you can see countless other celebrities, including Mark Ruffalo and Sophia Vergara, having fun with it (via Los Angeles Times). Now, after the original post has collected well over a million “likes”, it looks like everyone else is having fun too (via Daily Mail).
From photos of pets, to photos of children, to personal egos – creativity abounds when it comes to this hilarious challenge, and the obsession is real. Why? Because it’s fun to do, even more fun to watch, and we could use a laugh in the middle of this dumpster fire known as 2020! You want to get in on the action? Keep this formula in mind. Each grid starts with a photo in January that is happy and glamorous and slowly degrades to madness as the year progresses. So, what are you waiting for? Scroll through your photos, take some new ones, get your friends, family and children in fur and post them!
