Jack O Pose: What is the Jack-o Challenge?
This week, you might have seen the Jack-O Challenge on social media. If you want to join in, you’ll have to be pretty flexible. The Jack-O Pose or Jack-O Crouch is a move that the character Jack-O Valentine from the game Guilty Gear does. When the character’s crouching animation starts, they strike this pose.
Around the middle of August 2021, people started posting pictures of themselves in the Jack-O Pose on social media, often with the intention of making people laugh. Since 2019, people have made memes about the post. Most of the time, they redraw other characters to put them in the same position as Jack-O.
