Photographer Captures Latest Viral Craze 'The Condom Challenge'

First, it was the Ice Bucket Challenge. Now, it’s condoms? In case you've haven’t come across this trend on social media, over the last month or so, the “Condom Challenge” has swept the Internet as the latest viral prank. Similar to one of our own humorous photoshoots here at Fstoppers, Photographer Andreas Varro decided to drop water-filled condoms onto his subjects and capture their reactions.

The Condom Challenge involves filling a condom with water and filming one person dropping the condom onto another’s head. Before long, the trend snowballed and many started posting videos of this prank, similar to the Ice Bucket Challenge. Here’s an example of the challenge:

Not only were the compositions comical, but I am also a big fan of his lighting and retouching, which made these portraits great! Here are the results:
