The “Milk Crate Challenge” has been sweeping the social media world over the last few days. And on Tuesday, this viral trend made its way into the NFL mix.
Taking to Twitter this afternoon, the official account of Indianapolis Colts’ mascot, Blue, posted a video attempting the internet phenomenon.
Showing some shockingly impressive agility in a heavy costume, the Colts mascot successfully climbed the precarious stack of crates.
“Where do I go to collect my check? #crateschallenge,” the account wrote.
Here’s a clip of the challenge:

While this was impressive feat, the Indianapolis franchise has some more important business to attend to before the start of this coming season.
Earlier this month, starting quarterback Carson Wentz underwent surgery to repair an injury in his foot. The former Pro-Bowl QB, who made his way to Indianapolis by way of trade earlier this offseason, made his return to practice earlier this week on Sunday.
Despite his recent surgery, Wentz is expected to make his return for the Colts’ season opener on Sep. 12.
“I’ve played through a lot worse,” he said, per IndyStar.
One things for sure: the Indianapolis organization doesn’t want Wentz attempting the “Milk Crate Challenge” anytime soon.
We’ll leave that up to the unsung athletes like Blue.
