The Internet Is Shooketh By Viral Video Of Cheerleader Stepping Over An Invisible Box
Videos of people seemingly stepping over an invisible box have caused a million bewildered voices to shout into the sky, “HOW THE FUCK DID THEY JUST DO THAT?!?!” This weird, yet baffling phenomenon started way back on Aug. 18, 2017, when Twitter user teedoe AKA @thecvmevp AKA Dontez Hines uploaded a photo of him patting down an invisible box and then appearing to step on said imaginary box and landing on the other side of it. After some time Hines, who is a football player at Anderson University, finally went viral and his video has over 22,000 Retweets and more than 46,000 Likes.
As mindblowing as that Hines’ video is, a Manvel High School cheerleader named Ariel also pulled off the unbelievable invisible step maneuver.
It turns out that it is not some Jedi mind trick or a green screen visual effect. The dance move seems to have been documented as early as August of 2014 when Mexican dancer Marcos Grados was seen on a YouTube video performing the invisible step.
Hines told Men’s Fitness that anyone can do the trick with a little practice. “It is really nothing special,” he said. “I just imagined that there was a box and stepped on it.” *tries invisible step, imagines there’s a box on the ground, falls when there’s no box there, breaks neck, paralyzed forever*
Men’s Health fitness editor Ebenezer Samuel says you need a lot of strength and stability. He explained that it is basically a one-legged hop forward with a lot of elevation. “All his hip stabilizers on the right side are firing on overtime to hold that hip in position,” Samuel said. “You’ll notice his body rotates toward the leg on the step as well; there’s a ton of oblique and ab stability maintaining that position.” He added, “Very explosive hip flexor, abdominal and glute strength is what is driving the leg up and over the box.” People are going to get hurt trying to step on an imaginary box. But on the plus side, they will become glorious fail videos.
