Wacky Wednesday: The Soda Bottle Basketball Challenge [Video]
It's Wacky Wednesday!! Today, Angel and I tried to conquer a challenge I saw recently on Facebook that needs just two ingredients: a fully-inflated basketball and a soda bottle (or a water bottle if you want to be a wimp). The goal is to balance the opened bottle on top of the basketball, then drop the ball. The bottle will fall with it and get launched into the air when the ball hits the ground and bounces back up. You then have to spring into action, catch the bottle as it's spewing its insides all over the place and take a big swig! This has a significant degree of difficulty given all the variables in play: gravity, the bounce of the ball, the trajectory of the bottle, your hand-eye coordination, your dexterity and your skill. Here's how it played out!\
Angel and I started Wacky Wednesday a couple of months ago. The whole idea behind the series is to give families something fun and "wacky" to try together. The series grew out of the COVID-19 quarantine, but it has become a staple of our morning show. We're having a blast combing the internet for challenges to try and we're having even more fun tackling them as a way of encouraging you to give them a whack too.
A couple of weeks ago, we attempted did the Dizzy Bat Challenge. That's where you get a baseball bat, spin around with your head down on it ten times and then try and run to a particular target. Gravity and balance are variables in this one and they got the best of both of us. LOL!
Now for your viewing pleasure, here's another Wacky Wednesday challenge we attempted. A few weeks ago, we rocked out the Chubby Bunny Challenge.
Before that we attempted the "The Whipped Cream" Challenge. It went about as well.
Stay tuned each Wednesday here on WBKR, the WBKR app, WBKR.com and the WBKR Facebook page for Wacky Wednesday!!
