  • Move over, #KylieJennerLipChallenge — there’s a new social media craze in town. This time kids are trying to summon a Mexican demon named Charlie.

    The #CharlieCharlieChallenge is a cross between “Bloody Mary” and a Ouija board, and he’s a pretty easy demon to summon.

    All you need to do is take a piece of paper, draw a cross on it, and write your question in the squares. Then balance two pencils on top of each other over the cross on the paper.  Then you summon the spirit Charlie by asking, “Charlie, Charlie, are you there?” The next part is waiting for Charlie to answer. He communicates by moving the pencils.

    The fourth step of this process is posting the supernatural encounters for the world to see. And many of the results of the #CharlieCharlieChallenge have kids from all over screaming!

  • Talk about getting served!

    A video of an unidentified Russian waitress giving a grabby customer exactly what he deserves has gone viral.

    The security footage shows a customer in a Russian restaurant trying to stuff money down the waitress’s shirt. To say she doesn’t take it well would be an understatement. She slaps him, knocking him off his chair, and when he follows her and grabs her butt, she hits him with the menu so hard that he falls to the floor.

    The waitress then walks away as the groper is picked up off the floor by some other customers and leaves the restaurant.

    According to the Daily Mirror, some people are speculating that this instance of girl power may have been a setup, but that whack sure looks real.

    Can you measure a year in selfies?

    Alaska-based artist JK Keller has taken daily self-portraits from the same angle for the past 16 years.

    He now has over 5,000 photos, which he has complied into a mesmerizing time-lapse video more than three minutes long.

    JK started his project, “Living My Life Faster,” in October 1998, when he was 22, to document how his face and hair changes over the course of his life.

    This daily photo project actually started out of spite. JK’s girlfriend at the time mocked his purchase of what she considered an expensive Nikon Coolpix 900, sarcastically asking, “Are you going to use it every day?” Boy, has JK proved her wrong!

    JK has no plans to stop his daily selfie ritual, saying he would like to continue adding images to the project and updating the video until the day he dies. We applaud his commitment to art.

  • Some traditions are meant to be broken...

    Just as the music started during the obligatory father-daughter wedding dance, Jim Mickunas had another idea. He preferred to play a game of catch with his daughter Kandice, the bride.

    “My daughter has always found her own path,” Jim wrote on YouTube. She played Flag football at 6. She hated wearing dresses. She wore a tuxedo to her first communion. She lettered in Soccer and Track. She then became an Engineer for the largest automaker in the world when she was 22.”

    To Jim, the traditional father-daughter dance didn’t reflect who he and his daughter are, so he came up with the idea of playing a game of catch instead.

    Will this be the start of a new tradition at weddings across the country?

  • Screen Junkies correspondent Nick Mundy has always had a weird relationship with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Nick somehow managed to bridge the gap between journalist/superfan and friend. Now their friendship has morphed into a full-on bromance.

    Because of their history, Nick thought nothing much of his next assignment to interview the Rock for his new movie, “San Andreas.” But little did Nick know that his co-workers had other plans for him: They arranged for the Rock to marry Nick and his fiancée in a surprise wedding!

    When everything was revealed, the look on Nick’s face was priceless.

    “It’s a pleasure for me to do this,” the Rock told a shocked Nick. “It’s an honor for me to do this. It’s completely legal — I am officially ordained by the state of California. Yeah! I go all out. Because you’re my bestie.”

    Have no fear — Nick’s fiancée, Dilara, was in on the whole thing. They even flew his parents in from Texas.

    Congratulations to the newlyweds!
