Forget the Water Bottle Challenge, this viral internet challenge is all about flipping hard hats.

My first question after watching the above Hard Hat Challenge video compilation is why? Why did this become a thing?

I mean, yeah, if you successfully flip a hard hat onto your head you like a complete boss. Unfortunately, for the majority of dudes who failed and were decked in the face with a hard hat, it looks painful.

But. hey, keep flipping those hard hats, guys! You're providing the internet with a reason to put off sending that pointless work email and enjoy the little things in life, like watching grown men get hit in the face with safety gear.
