Today in wholesome internet phenomena, I give to you an exhausting-looking, viral trend that the web has officially dubbed the #MicrowaveChallenge.

But where did this even come from? Well, according to The Hindu, the phenomenon was born on TikTok, though they also note that K-pop bands BTS and EXO also may have had something to do the challenge's spread, as they allegedly "did the challenge before it became mainstream." Not only that, but the outlet reports that most people have been using Joji's "Slow Dancing in the Dark" to soundtrack their spins.

Honestly, this is something we can get behind. Watch a few of our faves, below.
