Crocs Challenge reveals some dark truths about our society
The internet is nothing if not good for a random challenge.
Recently, that’s been the Vans Challenge — where you toss a pair of Vans shoes up in the air and they magically always land right-side up.
Did you know it doesn’t matter how you throw your vans they will land facing up pic.twitter.com/nKVJCncW4H

And plenty of people took that and ran with it.
However, one good challenge deserves another. And so, the #crocschallenge was born.

Even when the Vans failed, the Crocs stood tall.

Then there’s this guy. His excitment about the challenge is making us uncomfortable.

But lurking somewhere in all of these posts is a dark truth about our society.
#CrocsChallenge is interesting and all but why do so many people own crocs still?
That is the most alarming thing about this challenge

Saddened by the fact that enough people own Crocs to make #CrocsChallenge trend.

By taking part in the challenge, so many people are indirectly admitting they actually own a pair (or 10) of Crocs.
All those people now doing the #CrocsChallenge You realise you’re telling the world you actually own a pair right?! 😆

Alright, alright. We shouldn’t be haters.
You would love yourself if you ordered a pair of crocs due to the fact that they are so damn comfortable!!

It’s all in fun. We gotta admit it’s pretty cool how they never land face-down.
