But now it’s time to stop mindlessly scrolling and get in on the action! With and party pictures out of the question for now, everyone's getting involved in viral social media challenges(Team Primark included)!
If you’re stuck at home, you might as well have fun with it! So reignite your creative spark and show off those new skills you’ve learned during lockdown with these fun, trending challenges.
Our Fave Online Challenges
The New Selfie
Social isolation has given us the perfect excuse for a self-care session. So we’re saying bye-bye to filtered, full-face glam selfies and hello to the face mask fans! We're sharing our best face mask pics using the hashtag #thenewselfie. Primark ambassador Kem Cetinay even got in on the action.
The Toilet Paper Challenge
With global sports postponed, soccer fans might be missing the regular matches. But this challenge may just give you a kick, using a COVID-19 essential: a toilet paper roll! Hand eye coordination is not your strength? This one will test your skills. Try to do as many kickups with the roll before kicking it out of shot. Then combine your video with friends' videos to create a cool collage.
