The latest challenge to take Facebook by storm is to list your top 10 favourite underpants, one day at a time. After already exhausting most top 10 lists such as top 10 albums, top 10 footballers and top 10 biscuits, it seems people are finally starting to run out of ideas and we are now down to our underwear.
The whole top 10 ten list thing seems to have started to alleviate the boredom of being on lockdown. A Facebook friend names his or her top 10 albums over a period of 10 days and then nominates their friends to do the same. Yes, it’s that boring! People soon moved onto other top 10 lists and have now lost the run of themselves.
We spoke to social media guru Brian Phillips from Dublin who has just been nominated by his friend Diarmuid to name his top 10 underpants.
“Well the last one I did was my top 10 bridges and I thought it was starting to get a bit ridiculous then to be honest but now it’s underpants? Seriously? I’m going to have to lie on this one and take photos off the internet ‘coz there’s no way I have 10 pairs of jocks.”
Facebook Ireland boss Mark Reilly said it’s great how these trends take off but he thinks this top 10 thing has run its course.
“These things always seem great when they start off but it doesn’t take long for people to get bored with them. Facebook users who painstakingly thought about their top 10 albums and then posted them on their timeline one day at a time forgot one important thing. Nobody gives a shit! We’re hoping that the next ice bucket challenge is just around the corner, whatever it is, and that it raises lots of money for good causes. What we do know is that it won’t involve naming your top 10 anything for no apparent reason. Get a life you dreadful people.”
