The Bow Wow Challenge is the best thing on the internet right now

It all started with an innocent Instagram upload from Shad Moss himself.

When Shad Moss was apparently caught out stretching the truth on social media, he started nothing short of a new online phenomenon.

The Bow Wow Challenge began after the rapper, formally known as Lil’ Bow Wow, posted this picture a few days ago inferring he was about to travel on the private jet pictured.

But eagle-eyed commentators were quick to point out some crucial details that don’t seem to add up – firstly, that he was supposedly spotted flying economy class that same day.

And secondly, that the picture looks very similar to one used on a Florida VIP transportation company website (including the Mercedes’ reg plate.)

Now Twitter users have set themselves the task of upgrading their lifestyles in a similar manner with some clever, or not-so-clever, use of social media foolery.

And the results are hilarious.

Even some official accounts have joined in.
