The #FloridaManChallenge has the Internet sharing some of the wildest headlines out of the Sunshine State.
There's something in the Sunshine State that causes the Florida Man to make some poor decisions. The Florida Man meme has been gaining a lot of popularity over the years after many began to realize how many strange headlines were coming out of the state. Donald Glover's Atlanta referenced the Internet phenomenon in the first episode of the second season. Darius described the Florida Man as being "responsible for a large percentage of abnormal incidents that occur in Florida," before comparing the Florida Man to an "Alt-Right Johnny Appleseed."
Now, the Florida Man has sparked a new viral challenge across social media platforms where users are sharing the bizarre headlines The Florida Man made on their birthday.
Every day, there's a new headline about the Florida Man. As I type this, the first thing that pops up on Google after searching the term is "A Florida Man let it all hand out at a strip club, danger says. He wasn't part of the act." Now, people are googling their date of birth and "Florida Man" to see what bizarre headline was made on their birthday.
Twitter user @ g_pratimaaa sparked the challenge on Twitter yesterday after gaining inspiration by another Twitter user @gandolfsoda
"EVERYBODY google “florida man” followed by your birthday (florida man august 22) and tell me what you get. mine is Florida Man tries to attack neighbor with tractor."
The Florida Man's become a staple in pop culture over the years. A Twiitter account was made under the name @_FloridaMan which highlights some of the wild activities in Florida.
