Bizarre challenges and the Internet go hand in hand, and nowadays people are ready to make extreme efforts to make a name for themselves on social media. Jump out of their cars? Eating tidal pods? "Break" Skull? Put cockroaches on their faces? The Challenge Enthu schnitzel did everything.

But every now and then (read: rarely) there is a challenge where the internet police do not have to remind you of the reasons why it is not a good idea to dress yourself or others in the guise of completing an "internet challenge".

In a new or rather old challenge that has risen from the past, all you have to do is look like the moon. Simple.

Here are the simple steps:

1) Take your cell phone and a toilet paper roll.

2) Now look through the toilet paper tube and click on a selfie.

You are the moon And the photo you just clicked on is the #moonselfie.

The hashtag #moonselfies on Instagram soon began to trend, and thousands of people shared their fun and charming results on the photo and video sharing platform.

"Take a selfie of yourself using toilet paper or a paper towel roll and pretend you're the moon," wrote an Instagram user.

Soon others took part in the Internet challenge.
