Apart from being one of the most popular social media platforms on the planet, Instagram is also a popular place for new trends to spawn. These trends often start with a few popular influencers doing a challenge, and then their followers do the same, eventually bringing the challenge to the whole platform.
In this article, we’re talking about the Runaway Aurora challenge on Instagram, which involves users posing with the sky as the background and taking a silhouette video using a special filter. At the same time, the song Runaway by Aurora plays in the background.
