The Quarantine of Challenges

Among all the ways we find to entertain us in quarantine, challenges win by thrashing. We tell you the challenge that Lio Messi joined.

As we are
La cuarentena de los retos

We Argentines get together all the time, with any excuse. That is why, in this  compulsory quarantine   , not being able to share affects us perhaps much more than the citizens of other countries who, perhaps, are not so deeply rooted in the habit of meeting. But somehow we retracted it, with the  technology  on our side.  Social networks  are exploited exponentially. Among all the things we invented locked up at home,  challenges came up. What is it about? They are  challenges or challenges  that a person throws, and then nominates others to follow.

Among the many challenges that are turning around the networks, there is one that was joined by important figures, including   Lionel Messi  . This challenge combines the most precious asset in quarantine and the greatest passion of Argentines:   toilet paper  and football. 

The viral challenge that entertains celebrities and anonymous is called #10ToQuesChallenge . It consists of making 10 games with a roll of toilet paper. No more, no less. The proposal, however, was not born of an Argentine. It was started by Joan Capdevila, the former Spanish footballer, who proposed to his followers to give 10 touches to the roll without getting to the floor.

When his turn came to him — after having been challenged by Xavi Hernández —  Leo Messi  managed to give  19 touches  , until he finished the video by kicking the roll. He then nominated Luis Suárez, Jordi Alba and Arturo Vidal (Barcelona's companions) and his friend Kun Agüero.

Challenges, memes, live: everything adds up to cope with quarantine isolated, but connected.
