Misbar’s Analysis

Shortly after its inception, the milk crate challenge received a lot of negative press. Following a number of injuries caused by the activity, doctors began warning people from participating in the dangerous challenge. Some medical professionals warned that falling from the precariously stacked crates is worse than falling from a ladder. The popular video-sharing app, TikTok, even banned milk crate challenge videos from its platform. 

However, some social media users have begun issuing an entirely different warning about the milk crate challenge: that it’s a satanic ritual. We investigated the satanic ritual claim and found that it doesn’t hold up. 

According to Know Your Meme, the earliest version of the milk crate challenge was posted back in 2011 by the action sports and adventure company JoyRidersTV. Their YouTube channel focuses on extremes sports and stunts and doesn’t have any satanic content. 

In August 2021, Facebook users Jordan Browne and his friend Kenneth Waddell were some of the first people to post the most recent milk crate challenge videos onto social media. Reuters interviewed Browne about why he and Waddell decided to create the milk crate videos. 

He said they did it to have fun and make some money, offering $50 to those who could make it across the crates without falling. When asked if it was related to a satanic ritual, he responded “I don’t know nothing about that, so I don’t pay attention to the negativity.”
