Why This Cheerleader's Mind-Blowing Invisible Box Stunt Is Sweeping the Internet

Ariel Olivar posted went viral she demonstrates how to do her invisible step dance move

The trend first started this summer when Dontez Hines, a defensive back at Anderson University in IN, demonstrated the stunt in a viral video on Twitter. There has been a new entry to the long list of time-wasting sensations taking the internet by storm. Yes, I'm talking about all the people who are hopping over "invisible boxes"!

For those unaware, it constitutes pretending to tap the surface of a phantom box before placing your foot on top of it and then using your other foot to step on and over it.

The invisible box trick seems to go back a while, with a few posts on Reddit asking how to pull it off.

Ariel Olivar from Manvel High School in Texas posted a video on Twitter of her performing a lovely "invisible box" trick, appearing to levitate as she steps over the non-existent box.

In a video posted on YouTube, dancer Marcos Grados, from Guadalajara, Mexico, also manages to incorporate the move in to one of his routine.
