The tale goes that a little boy named Charlie has died and his soul has remained trapped on Earth. Charlie's spirit can be summoned by crossing two pens or pencils to create a grid (with sectors labelled "yes" and "no") and then asking questions of "Charlie". The upper pencil is then expected to rotate to indicate the answer to such questions. But, the main question everyone asks is "can we play Charlie Charlie."This novelty app will be sure to provide you with hours of fun and can liven up any occasion.NOTE: Charlie Charlie the Challenge is a novelty app and the function of voice recognition is non-functioning and intended for entertainment purposes only. No spirits were harmed in its making.MORE INFO:The "Charlie Charlie" Challenge (Also referred to as the "Charlie Charlie" Game) is a game which was popularised through the Internet in 2015, partly through the hashtag #CharlieCharlieChallenge. Charlie Charlie may have originated from a playground game in Spanish-speaking countries known as Juego de la Lapicera ("Game of the Pens"), although it has also been linked to a 2008 YouTube video entitled "Jugando Charly Charlie". In 2015 it became popular in the Dominican Republic, and trended on Twitter. It was subsequently revealed to have been derived from a scene in the film The Gallows and was part of a viral marketing campaign.Some claim the phenomenon of the pencil's movement has been explained as an effect of the relative positions of the pencils; the cross arrangement providing an effective pivot on which the upper pencil can easily move due to very slight environmental changes. Others claim a more sinister explanation is at play.According to Caitlyn Dewey of The Washington Post, this game is valuable as an example of cross-cultural viral trends: "Charlie makes a killer case study in virality and how things move in and out of languages and cultures online. Youll notice, for instance, a lot of players and reporters talking about the game as if it were new, when its actually and more interestingly, I think an old game that has just recently crossed the language divide."
