    - How many people did she have to get to do that?
    - (FBE) We want to see if you can try out
    the Matilda Challenge. (slamming table)
    - Here?!
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    ♪ (playful intro) ♪
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - This is the music from Matilda, right?
    - ♪ (humming) ♪ - (child wailing)
    - What the heck?
    - ♪ (humming) ♪ - (man laughing)
    - (softly) What the heck?
    (louder) What the heck?
    (pots banging) - That is crazy!
    - What is this? That did not make any sense at all.
    - I liked it. It was funny.
    - What, is it, like, reenacting like scene from Matilda or something?
    Like Matilda, I named my dog Miss Honey,
    after Matilda.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - What the heck?
    - (chuckling) The tiger's moving.
    - Someone cleaning, and then different objects moving.
    - Is this a trend? What the heck?
    - It's weird! What is it?
    - I don't even know what is happening. Is this a challenge?
    - That's so weird.
    If that's a trend, that's the weirdest trend ever.
    - Is it one in the movie Matilda, although objects
    are moving with her because she has the power or something,
    so I think they're trying to recreate that or mimic it.
    - "Matilda Challenge."
    - "Matilda Challenge." Oh, Matilda!
    - (gasping) Matilda! Oh.
    I love Matilda.
    - Oh, that's cool.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - Oh, I kinda get it now. With different objects moving.
    - How many people did she have to get to do that?
    That's crazy.
    - ♪ (upbeat oldies) ♪ - It's weird!
    - I guess this is fake magic.
    - I'm starting to see that it's probably a trend.
    This might be bad, but I don't even know who Matilda is.
    - It's called #MatildaChallenge.
    It's like what they're doing from the movie.
    - I understand it now.
    Matilda-- I always watched that with my mom,
    and I never really realized that this would be a trend.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - It's kinda cool and fun to watch.
    - That's so funny.
    - It makes you want to dance or do something.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - That's nice. It's not horrible.
    They're not eating Tide Pods, so that's a plus.
    - This challenge is not one of the best things
    that people have came up with.
    - I have a feeling a lot of people would say it's easy,
    but I bet it's harder than it looks.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - Hey, well, I stopped by my hotel. Might as well do the Matilda Challenge.
    - I see somebody moving it.
    Half of these people are not even doing good.
    People, you are not doing good.
    - I like it better when you can't actually see the person,
    but if you do see them, I can see the string,
    but, you know, that's okay.
    - ♪ (upbeat oldies) ♪
    - The way he's dancing is hilarious.
    - There must be a lot of people in there.
    - Major respect to these people. Oh, my god!
    - That one was pretty creative,.
    - I like them.
    They're funny, but they're just all the same.
    - It's a strange trend, but, I mean, they do it well and it looks good
    and it's funny to watch.
    - Ah, the mascot.
    - Oh, my god! Yes!
    - This is bigger than I thought it would be
    because I didn't know this was happening.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - Hey, how would a person fit in there?
    - Did the school let them do this?
    - Oh, wow.
    ♪ (upbeat oldies) ♪
    - Oh, yeah, this one's really messy.
    It's gonna suck cleaning that up.
    - It's a fun challenge.
    It looks like it could be a little difficult,
    trying to get everything to work all at once.
    - It's a nice challenge.
    Some of them, you can see the people and it's like, oh, yeah,
    it's just a challenge, but other ones, it's harder to tell
    and I think that kinda makes it better.
    - Oh, god.
    - Oh, my god! What the heck?!
    - Is there a tornado going on or something?
    - That one is cool.
    - I really like it. It's unique.
    - That one was kind of funny because it's not really
    a good challenge, but they just said it was
    because things were moving around.
    - That was interesting because now they're just putting
    the music over random things.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - "Matilda Challenge gone wrong."
    - She's crazy.
    She's dancing on the tab-- knew it!
    I knew it!
    - (gasping) - (onlookers laughing)
    - (laughing) You can see the people coming out in the back.
    - I hope she's okay. That looked like it hurt.
    - Why is she even dancing on the table in the first place?
    You should know!
    - I wouldn't think Matilda because it's so old, the movie,
    and I wouldn't think it would actually become a challenge.
    - (FBE) After watching all this videos,
    do you have any idea where the challenge comes from?
    - No, I have no idea what the challenge is.
    - I mean, I've heard of Matilda, but I haven't seen Matilda.
    - I'm guessing it's from the movie Matilda.
    I haven't watched that movie.
    - I know it comes from Matilda.
    Matilda has all this magic when she points to things.
    - She's pointing at all the things and all the objects
    in the house to make them come alive.
    - Yes, from the movie Matilda, the scene where she's like
    ♪ (humming) ♪
    Well, I first watched the musical and I loved it so much
    and then I'm like is there a movie?
    I watch it to this day.
    - (FBE) So the challenge is called the "Matilda Challenge"
    and is inspired by a scene from the movie called Matilda,
    that came out in 1996, so 22 years ago.
    - I wasn't even born then.
    - Wow, and now it's just catching on.
    - I think I heard of that, but not positive.
    - I liked the movie and it's crazy that it came out
    22 years ago and I'm still watching it now
    because it's a classic that everyone has to watch.
    - (FBE) I'm gonna show you a clip now from the scene
    that kind of inspired the challenge. - Okay, let's see.
    - If I remember, it's cards flying around her.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    - That's cool.
    - ♪ (humming along) ♪
    There it is.
    - So she has powers?
    - So she's just making things move randomly?
    - It all makes sense now, yeah.
    I definitely remember it.
    - ♪ Little bitty pretty one ♪
    - This movie brings back so many good childhood memories.
    - Yeah, that's real magic.
    - She's dancing and everything. That's so funny.
    - That's cool. Yeah, I see the challenge.
    - Now I actually kinda want to see that movie.
    - I loved that movie when I was growing up.
    I saw it tens of thousands of times.
    I was so amazed when she was like, wait,
    she has powers? Do I have powers?
    - (FBE) This scene is of Matilda, who's a girl around your age,
    who discovers she has telekinetic powers.
    - I don't know what "telekinetic" means,
    but I'm assuming it means she can control other things
    with her mind.
    - (FBE) Telekinesis is the term for the ability to move objects
    using your mind. - Oh.
    - That would kinda be cool because I want to move my bed.
    - (FBE) Matilda is played by actress Mara Wilson,
    who was nine years old when she was filming
    and is now 31 years old. - That's insane.
    That was so long ago!
    - (FBE) And why do you think this challenge
    is only becoming popular now when the movie came out so long ago?
    - Maybe someone actually realized how good the movie was
    and was like, "Maybe we should just do something.
    It would be funny." And it just blew up.
    - Maybe because people like classics. I don't know.
    - Because it's really popular and really old.
    Since it was so old, that maybe they wanted
    to celebrate about it.
    - When the movie came out, I feel like challenges
    weren't really a thing, but I feel like nowadays
    it's really huge.
    - People could probably do it on their own time,
    but there was none of this social media there
    as like nowadays.
    - Social media before didn't exist, and now it's like
    there's social media, like Instagram, Snapchat, musical.ly,
    where you could share and post everything you're doing,
    and a bunch of people could watch.
    There were no trends or challenges or things like that back then.
    - (FBE) There seems to be a lot of challenges on the web,
    and a lot of times, the challenges don't have anything to do
    with its origin or sometimes, like this, they're directly correlated.
    As a kid, when you come across some of these challenges,
    do you ever wonder where it originated from?
    - Yes, I do.
    Usually, I google it and I'm like, "Wait, what's really happening
    right now?"
    - Sometimes, I wonder where it originated from.
    I just want to know how something so strange
    could even remotely happen.
    - I just care as long as it's fun.
    - As long as it's fun, it doesn't really matter.
    I just think about, "Ooh, it's a challenge.
    I want to do it. Let's do it."
    - I just think about it for a little bit
    and then I just usually forget about it
    and just enjoy the challenge or whatever, you know,
    because if you think too much about it,
    it's just gonna be time consuming and then it's gonna be gone
    in a week or two.
    - One time, I reacted to the Corn Drill Challenge.
    I don't think I'd want to that.
    It'd be too hard on my teeth.
    Like, obviously, I don't feel like that had an origin anywhere,
    so if there are dumb challenges that don't look like
    they came from any movies or anything like that,
    I don't really wonder where it came from.
    - (FBE) Finally, we want to see if you can try out
    the Matilda Challenge. (slamming table)
    Here?!
    - Really? (laughing)
    How?
    - This is kinda random.
    I mean, I have no practice!
    - I don't have any powers!
    - I'm not Matilda. I can't do that.
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    (snapping fingers)
    - (giggling)
    - ♪ (humming) ♪
    ♪ (music picking up pace) ♪
    - Let's go.
    ♪ (upbeat oldies) ♪ I have telekinetic powers.
    Who even is Matilda? Never heard of her.
