The teabag challenge

A fascinating new challenge has picked up millions of views on LinkedIn. And it involves trucks and tea bags. 

In the #teabagchallenge, a truck driver will reverse his or her vehicle into a precise position above a cup of water. The driver will then lower the truck's suspension, dipping a tea bag that's tied to the truck into the cup. 

Check out the video below.

The feat has been replicated by many trucking and manufacturing firms. One video, from Netherlands-based Dijkstra Plastics, has 2.7 million views and thousands of comments. 

The challenge appears to have originated among European truckers. With each successful completion, a new company is challenged.
