Step aside, #InMyFeelings. The internet’s next big challenge craze is coming straight to you by way of creatively hilarious Latinos and their love for a 90s classic and goodie. In social media’s latest dance and music challenge trend, fans of the 1996 film “Matilda” which stars a young Mara Wilson, are recreating one of the film’s most memorable scenes.
And it was all started by Latino Youtuber, Beto Pedraza on the social media platform Musical.ly.
The “Matilda” trend started in Central and South America and has quickly gone viral across the globe world.

Participants are reenacting a beloved scene from the film based off the book by Roald Dahl in which Matilda uses her Telekinetic powers to clean up her house while dancing to Thurston Harris’s “Little Bitty Pretty One.” In the days since Pedraza’s original post, the hashtag #MatildaChallenge has gone viral with thousands of others recreating the scene.
Basically, all of the videos that have been posted are sweet and hilarious
Gente are putting REAL effort into recreating the scene.
Even Matilda herself, Mara Wilson, shared a few of the videos on Twitter.
