With the inauguration behind us and the HUGE Women鈥檚 March on Washington and its 600 (!!!) sister marches making history as we speak, emotions are undoubtedly flying high. Whether you鈥檙e happy, sad or fired up about the events that took place over the last several days, we think it鈥檚 safe to say that we could all use an extra dose of optimism and a little laughter right about now (have you SEEN these LOL-worthy signs?). Enter the #OptimisticChallenge.

Chance The Rapper

First posted by Jay Versace to celebrate the new year with the caption 鈥2017 GOT ME FEELING LIKE,鈥 the clip shows Jay and three of his friends dancing in the street to 1991鈥檚 鈥淥ptimistic鈥 by Sounds of Blackness. With nearly 85,000 views to date, the clip was already well on its way to going viral.

Now, it鈥檚 taken on even greater internet life thanks to Chance the Rapper. Turning to Twitter to post his very own take on Jay鈥檚 hilarious clip, which fans quickly dubbed the #OptimisticChallenge, Chance reminded us all that a little lighthearted, smile-inducing silliness can go a loooong way. Just watch him and his BFFs bust a move below and try NOT to feel like a ray of sunshine has pierced your heart!

Like many famed social media challenges before it (RIP #IceBucketChallenge), the #OptimisticChallenge is not only gaining serious traction; it鈥檚 actually having a really positive impact on folks around the country. That鈥檚 thanks to its silliness, of course, but also in part to the theme song鈥檚 powerful lyrics, which include uplifting lines like: 鈥淭elling you this can鈥檛 never be done / No matter how hard reality seems / Just hold on to your dreams鈥 because, 鈥淎 brighter day tomorrow will bring.鈥 Beautiful.

Moral of the story? Never underestimate the power of a smile!
