There are no rules and no perfect way of doing it but the only objective is to RUNNNN!

The socio-political horror film follows a black man named Chris, who goes away for the weekend with his white girlfriend, Rose, to meet her parents.

Peele's racism-tackling film received an approval rating of 99 percent and a rating of 8.2 by Rotten Tomatoes, while finishing first in the box office in his first weekend, grossing $33.4 million.

The challenge was inspired by an eerie scene involving Chris and the creepy black groundskeeper, Walter. Chris encounters Walter and quickly realizes there's something off about him. When Chris goes outside for some air that night, Walter emerges from the forest, running toward him at a full sprint. He barrels closer, making a razor sharp 90 degree turn, just a few feet in front of Chris, avoiding a collision, and continuing to run.
