Riddle me this – The giraffe challenge

28 Oct

Display pictures. Whether it’s on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even on Whatsapp. We all love our display pictures. They summarise how we want to depict ourselves to the world. Some people change their DPs every few months, some every few minutes. There’s no set of rules.

Except in this particular viral game that is going around. Similar to many Facebook games this one asks you to change your display picture. The only difference is, you have to solve the riddle. If you get it wrong, you have to change your DP into a picture of a giraffe.

As silly as it sounds, it’s been going around the intervewbs even picked up by a few online newspapers. Proving that a little bit of fun never hurt anyone.  It all started with 24-year-old travel videographer , Andrew Strugnel , who posted this video on the challenge  on Saturday 26th of October.

What’s even more interesting is seeing how a cat shelter (NPO) in Croatia, has also joined in and used the same riddle, but instead, it asks that the people who answer incorrectly change their DP to a picture of one of the cats in their shelter.

Prava šapa ( Right paw) a shelter made up of  volunteers who are trying to help abandoned cats and find them homes, posted the riddle on it’s Facebook page yesterday. Quiet a few people took notice as well as played along.

I liked the idea of joining in a viral game to create some awareness, even if it’s just for a little bit of fun. People online should lighten up. The internet is a great way of sharing content but it’s also a great way of sharing a few giggles.

I’d like to see how far this will go and how long it will last.

I unfortunately …. am NOT  a giraffe 😦

Thank you Andrew Strugnel, for the silly , lovely little game.
