Floyd Mayweather issues challenge that could actually make you cringe yourself unconscious

Legitimately difficult to watch

Think you’ve got what it takes to complete the Mayweather Challenge?

What do you mean you have absolutely no idea what the Mayweather Challenge is? It’s all the rage. All the cool kids are doing it. If you’re not doing the Mayweather Challenge, are you really alive or are you just breathing?

For those of you who are unaware, the Mayweather Challenge is, to use Floyd Mayweather’s own vernacular, “when you really living it, when you ain’t frontin’ and you ain’t lying to the people when you really living the real lifestyle that you say you living.”

Still not getting it? Not to worry, the man himself had a second run at explaining it.

“The Mayweather Challenge is showing the people how you really live… the Mayweather Challenge, let’s go.”

To show his hordes of followers on social media what it’s all about, he wheeled out his private jet and a couple of his pilots just to show the world how he really lives.

A lot of people have managed to get over the astronomically high cringe levels of the video and are actively taking part in the challenge.

Unsurprisingly, the layperson doesn’t have a private jet to show off to the world, so most of the responses have been very different from the original video.
