The quirky #GlitchChallenge on TikTok has taken the world by storm. This is how you can take part for yourself!
The #GlitchChallenge has been racking up millions of views since June 27. Thousands of TikTokers have posted themselves ‘buffering’ to a remixed version of Missy Elliot’s ‘Get Ur Freak On.’
The trend was started by the viewer-dubbed ‘Glitch Queen,’ @glitchgirlmaster. Her table-top videos have earned her over one million followers and 35-million likes!

According to Vanessa herself, she wasn’t even trying to ‘glitch’ when she came up with the iconic dance. Her almost-robotic movements attracted over 100-thousand views overnight, and she became a viral sensation.
Not that glitch trend…
Several versions of the ‘glitch’ trend have popped up over the last year. Billions of people have viewed #Glitch as TikTokers have created their own wacky content.

How to take part
Anyone can take part in the #GlitchChallenge! You’ll need to channel your inner robot and dance in a jolty, clunky way. Imagine you’re running on really slow wi-fi.
Missy Elliot’s sound is key to capturing that buffering feel. Make sure you glitch in time with the music. If in doubt, edit!
