The latest social media challenge, which has taken internet by storm, is the Elf On The Shelf Challenge. It’s a Christmas special meme fest in which people have to share pictures of themselves along with a tiny photoshopped image of another person sitting on their shoulders. Not just that, they even have to give an interesting caption to the picture which should rhyme with their names.
The challenge was started by Hollywood actor Garcelle posting a picture of her sitting on Pharell Williams’s shoulder. Soon after, several other stars joined in. Elf on the shelf is a popular holiday tradition, in which parents place a small elf doll in their home and tell their children that the elf watches over them during the day and reports back to the North Pole at night.
From Hollywood, Morgan Freeman posted a picture with basketball player Michael Jordan on his shoulder and wrote, “Here’s Jordan on Morgan.” Mark Ruffalo paid homage to the character from Marvel’s universe that we lost in Avengers Endgame. It’s Tony Stark aka Iron Man. Mark wrote, “… a Stark on Mark.”
Actress Elizabeth Banks used a picture of Tom Hanks for the challenge and yes, Banks rhymes with Hanks. The Wonder Woman Gal Gadot shared a picture with Pedro Pascal on her shoulder and captioned it as, “I bet you’ve never heard of Pascal-on-Gal.”
Global star Priyanka Chopra shared a photo of herself with American talk show host Oprah Winfrey on her shoulder and wrote, “Oprah on Chopra. Boom.”
Bollywood is also in all Christmas spirits as many celebs joined the #ElfOnTheShelf challenge. Madhuri Dixit shared a picture with singer Rihanna sitting on her shoulder. The actor wrote, “RiRi on Madhuri. Did it for the gram.” Vijay Varma shared a picture of himself with Diljit Dosanjh’s on-screen character Soorma on his shoulder. He wrote, “Ok take this… Soorma on Varma.” Sonakshi Singh also took up the challenge and shared picture with Mona Lisa and wrote, “Sona pe Mona…” Rahul Preet Singh posted picture with FRIENDS character Chandler Bing and captioned it as, “Got some Bing on this Singh.”
