The Broom Challenge came from a viral tweet that claimed NASA made this announcement. The tweet read "Okay so NASA said today was the only day a broom can stand up on its own because of the gravitational pull...I didn’t believe it at first but OMG!" Although there is no scientific evidence to back this up and NASA has yet to comment on the video, people still took the challenge seriously and began to post videos of themselves standing up their brooms.
The tweet has been retweeted more than 50,000 times with even celebrities like Paula Abdul and Ally Brooke getting in on the challenge.
