CrateChallenge - Crate Challenge

Just when it seemed like these social media challenges were dying down, the internet is back to prove it is undefeated with brand new challenge.  The #CrateChallenge basically involves a tower of crates lined up to be steps.  When people take the challenge they essentially walk up to the highest step in the center, and then down the steps on the other end.
