TikTokers are testing their coordination and strength by playing the “Electricity Game” effect on TikTok. The new filter places a moving  maze on the screen. TikTokers use their head to track a ball through it without getting fried. Many TikTokers are attempting to beat the game while in a pushups position, adding an endurance component. The effect has amassed over 51.2 million views and the hashtag #ElectricityGame is trending on the app.

TikTok‘s “Electricity Effect” page calls out creators to take the challenges, asking, “How long can you last? Try our new #ElectricityGame and show us your high score!”

The game begins with a short countdown and progress is tracked at the top of the screen. Many creators have been successful.

Those who do fail, get “electrocuted.” The filter even adds a little soot to the creator’s face.
