The craze started on Tuesday, when Instagram user t.currie, created the #DrivebyDunkChallenge. Essentially, dunkers pull up to random houses that have basketball hoops, and proceed to throw down a vicious dunk.
Here’s the original video:
Currie has thrown down some big dunks before, and he has actually developed a substantial following on social media. When the video was picked up by Bleacher Report, the hashtag went viral.

In fact, Anthony Davis has now joined the flood of dunkers. He went out and found his own hoop to dunk on. This may be the best social media challenge in recent history!
