From the infamous Tide Pod trend to the more recent ‘In My Feelings’ dance challenge, the Internet is abundant with viral ‘movements’. But, this one truly does take the ‘cake’.
The Matilda Challenge is inspired by the 1996 movie star starring Mara Wilson, who played the titular genius who discovers her telekinetic powers. With the help of friends and family, people are making their own versions of the scene where Matilda dances on a tabletop to Thurston Harris’ ‘Little Bitty Pretty One’ and makes objects around her move with her newly discovered powers.
