As we are used to social networks, a strange challenge arose on Instagram. Now, yes, it comes from the most recognized stars in Hollywood. This is the Elf on the shelf Challenge .
This consists of a celebrity editing a photograph to put a recognized face of cinema and series on his shoulder , just as a domesticated parrot would.
It all started with a very common Christmas tradition in North America: the Elf on the shelf toy , which according to custom should be placed somewhere in the house to spy on the little ones, and then warn the Old Man Pascuero about his behavior. Thus, he will decide whether it is worthy of a gift or not on Christmas Eve.
The story stems from an infant book published in 2005, written by Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell . The narrative tells that these elves travel at night to the North Pole, the homeland of Santa Claus, and return every day to watch over the children.
The challenge on Instagram started with the Haitian actress and former model Garcelle Beauvais , who shared on her account an edited photograph in which she is sitting on the shoulder of the American rapper Pharrell Williams .
“You’ve heard of Elf on a shelf, now get ready for this,” he says next to the screenshot. Specifically, it is a rhyming game: Garcelle on the Pharrell.
Later, the American Elizabeth Banks joined the challenge and published a screenshot in which she is about the actor Tom Hanks. “I know you’ve all heard of Elf on a Shelf, but have you heard of… Hanks on the Banks ?” He wrote.
Then the singer Mariah Carey, interpreter of All i want for christmas is you , did the same with the actor Jim Carrey, who plays the Grinch in the movie of the same name: “Carrey on Carey”, he typed.
