People are attempting (and failing) all across the country.

If you thought walking on air wasn't humanly possible, the latest fad to sweep the internet will make you think otherwise. Dubbed 'The Invisible Box' challenge, this new trend involves tapping a non-existent box and then stepping over it with no help whatsoever. Trust us, it's much harder than it sounds.

The trend first started this summer when Dontez Hines, a defensive back at Anderson University in Indiana, demonstrated the stunt in a viral video on Twitter. "Stepping over you haters like...," he captioned the post.

The video was quick to garner over 56,000 likes and has since prompted several others to attempt this gravity-defying feat. No one has mastered the trick quite like Ariel Olivar, a cheerleader from Manval High school in southeastern Texas, whose demonstration went viral. Take a look:

Her video has been liked over 293,000 times, putting Dontez's attempt to shame-and it's even made it on The Today Show.

While Ariel certainly makes the whole thing look like a walk in the park, hundreds of imitators on social media are trying (and failing) to capture the same magic in videos of their own.

If you're still looking to try this at home, Ariel has been offering tips on how to do the challenge properly.

"It's hard to explain, I just keep the leg in the same exact spot," she told the Houston Chronicle. "The technique, if you want to make it look like [the video], is to bring the other leg higher than the other as if you are actually stepping over a box." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Follow her advice at your own discretion.
