Pupi Challenge – A New Ice Bucket Challenge

A new Internet craze sweeping across the world involves eating red hot pepper and donating money to fight hunger. Since the huge success of last year’s ice bucket challenge, a new challenge was started by legendary Inter Milan player Javier Zanetti – the  ‘Pupi Challenge’. It involves eating a red hot pepper and donating money to support the fight against world hunger.

It’s already gone viral in Italy after being started by Argentinian star Javier Zanetti, who played for Italian giants Inter.

In the clip below, shows former captain Zanetti ,who was the first to eat a pepper , screaming as he burnt his mouth. Then former captain passed the challenge  to some of his soccer friends, to Juventus keeper Gianluigi  Buffon and Barcelona ace Carles Puyol.

Buffon accepted the challenge and then went to challenge his teammate at Juventus, Andrea Pirlo and several Italian TV stars.

The rules are simple.

You have to donate the cash to Zanetti’s PUPI Foundation, then film yourself eating one of the super hot chilli peppers, and send the challenge to four of your friends.

Join the Hot Pepper Challenge for a good cause.
