If you have been scrolling through Twitter or the chaotic fun that is TikTok, you may have come across Avengers-themed pool videos.
Each clip sees members of the Marvel universe (or people pretending to be them) heroicly jumping out of a swimming pool.
The premise is simple – you need a gang, a few props to double as a shield for Captain America and a hammer for Thor, and a pool obviously (or the ocean).
The video consists of each member posing as an iconic Marvel character whether that be Spiderman, Ironman, Black Panther and so on, and then jumping into a pool.
Each person doing the role play might also want to pose as their character such as crouching for Spidey, doing the Wakanda Forever salute as T’Challa or getting your bow ready as Hawkeye.
Then rewind it all, and you’ll have yourself a gravity-defying video with viral potential.
One group of men who completed the challenge were a bunch of professional divers.
Team GB diver Daniel Goodfellow and 2016 gold medal winner, Jack Laugher created a low-budget version of a key scene from the latest of the Marvel franchise, Endgame.
And their spectacular video, created with the help of some other diver friends, soon went viral after it dropped on TikTok.
The diver edition was enjoyed by many, many people, racking up 1.2 million likes on TikTok alone.
On Twiter, it went up to 200,000.
While the divers’ version – perhaps the most clean-cut one – did the rounds on social media, it’s not the first of its kind.
Over on TikTok, people have been jumping into pools and rewinding the stuff since summer.
Families have been taking on the challenge during barbeques, pool parties, or just at home (if they’re fancy enough to own a pool).
Some have even added weird and wonderful props, such as a penguin (yeah us neither), a float, and, more fittingly, an Ironman mask.
One person even assembled by themselves in the pool (it’s possible).
Luckily there’s a handy compilation video to keep you entertained.
