Dubai: Most people around the world are staying at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus. With a big stock of toilet roll on hand (due to earlier panic buying), and access to social media, say hello to Instagram’s latest viral #toiletpaperchallenge.
This latest Internet challenge that is keeping people busy at home, involves toilet paper rolls and confused pets.
What is the challenge?
Pet owners are stacking rows of toilet paper horizontally, to see how high their dogs and cats can jump. After each attempt, a new row of toilet paper rolls are added to the first, to make the mountain of tissues higher.
While some athletic pups manage to jump over almost five rows of stacked tissue roles, other fearless pets just push their way through the toilet roll wall.

If you don't have a pet, there's another challenge doing the rounds on social media that also involves toilet paper. People are trying to dribble toilet paper rolls, like a football, till it falls.
Many people have jumped on this bandwagon, including football star Lionel Messi. His #toiletpaperchallenge video was watched more than 2 million times.
