In the eight-second video, Pareno quickly moves her fingers to the beat of a dubstep song. At the end of the video, her face explodes with excitement at her accomplishment.
In the four days since she posted the video, it has reached more than 8.7 million views and has been shared more than 174,000 times.
After her video went viral, others tried to do the same “trippy” hand challenge.

However, it wasn’t as easy as Pareno made it look.
Some people jokingly called the trick “witchcraft” or “sorcery.”

Pareno tweeted that it was “creepy but cool” that people had viewed her hands “half a million”– now millions– of times. She has dubbed herself “the hand lady.”
