The Chinese Government is getting in one of the country’s most popular memes.
It’s called the “Flaunt Your Wealth” Challenge, and it’s been trending for months.
People across China have been posting images of themselves pretending to fall out of cars or tripping and landing on the floor.
In the images, their expensive or impressive belongings are spread all around them, as if the stuff has just fallen out of their pockets.
Now, employees of local government organizations are doing it too, but they are posting themselves surrounded by their work tools or the honors they received for their work.
The viral craze isn’t just huge in China, people across the world including Russia and Australia have taken the opportunity to show off under the hashtag “falling stars”.
