The #RunningManChallenge is trending on social media. Videos feature people grooving to hip-hop group Ghost Town DJ's "My Boo" are popping up all over the Internet. Athletes, dancers, couples and kids are all posting footage of themselves dancing.

The trend has everyone wondering where it all started...And RTM has learned you can trace it back to a high school in New Jersey...Before the locker room dance by basketball players at the University of Maryland. Kevin Vincent and Jerry Hall, the true originators of the challenge, joined RightThisMinute to talk all about how they got the entire Internet to dance.
