Think you can take your t-shirt off quickly? Think again.

People are taking off their clothes in a very dramatic style for a new TikTok challenge inspired by the Netflix show Never Have I Ever.

If you haven’t seen the show, firstly - where have you been? Secondly, let us explain what actually happens.

The show follows Devi, played by Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, who is navigating her way through her love life while tackling school and family drama. And she's on a mission - to lose her virginity to her crush and high school heartthrob, Paxton.

In one scene, which is a dream sequence, Paxton, played by Darren Barnet, walks into her bedroom and utters the words, “I’m here to have sex with you” and then whips off his t-shirt in one fluid motion.

In the words of Paris Hilton, that’s hot.

Now, if you’ve ever tried to take your t-shirt off in one movement before, you’ll know that it isn’t exactly easy - your arms get in the way, and then there’s your head to think about. It’s very difficult!

But Darren makes it look SO easy (in fact, we're sure he had help from the special effects department).

Now everyone is trying to recreate the scene and the results are hilarious. There are A LOT of fails out there and most people crack up laughing half-way through with a t-shirt stuck around their neck.

Apparently the pro-tip is to pull from the sleeve, in case you want to try out the challenge for yourself. [H/T Teen Vogue]
