Backwards challenge – Video

Can you increase your intelligence by doing things backwards? According to some studies, walking backwards can increase your intelligence, so the Blello team wanted to test this theory by doing ‘stuff’ backwards then seeing if they get smarter!

In this ‘sdrawkcab’ challenge Just Ty and PK do some normal stuff in an out of the ordinary way in an attempt to grow their intelligence. When it comes to challenges in life it is all about perspective and looking at things in a different way.

Sometimes to achieve something, taking time to look at it differently changes your perspective and gives you the boost you need. Watch this challenge forwards (or is it backwards?!) and see if these two do indeed get smarter!
