The #BowWowChallenge May Be The First Ever Legitimately Hilarious Internet Trend

Usually, I don’t write about spur-of-the-moment internet trends, but like most things on the world wide web, they burn out as fast as they blow up.

But every once in a while, there’s one so legitimately hilarious that I sit at my computer belly laughing as I scroll through Twitter. When that happens, I bring it to the readers.

So, without further ado, I introduce you to the #BowWowChallenge.

Here’s the backstory: Shad Moss aka Lil Bow Wow aka Calvin Cambridge (that’s a quick Like Mike reference for your head top) posted an Instagram alluding to him taking a private jet to New York City, however, a picture surfaced of Bow Wow actually sitting on a commercial plane.

Yeah, so not the best look for Lil Bow Wow. If you’re going to pretend to be flying on a private jet, at least be IN the photo. The picture that Bow Wow threw up looks like it was ripped from one of those ‘RichManLifeStyle’ or ‘DoucheBagInc’ or whatever Instagram accounts. Try harder Bow Wow.

Anyway, Twitter responded with a home run, creating the #BowWowChallenge to hilarious effect:

If Bow Wow’s career wasn’t already over (which it was), this is definitely the final nail.
