According to a leading media portal, the challenge was first shared by a couple of Bella and Dallin Lambert on their TikTok handle @dallinxbella. After this, thousands of people have taken on the challenge with their significant others, friends, or family members.
The challenge involves two people who are supposed to stand in front of a mirror while the 2018 track Nonstop plays. The person standing closer to the mirror has to hold the camera and record the video on their phone. In the background, the other person is supposed to dance to the music until the song lyric, “Look, I just flipped a switch (flipped, flipped)” comes. That is the cue to ‘switch’ positions with the other person in the video. The cue prompts the room’s light switch to be turned off and on, only to show that the two participants have swapped outfits and positions during the transition.
