Why would anyone agree to do the cinnamon challenge? Because sometimes doing stupid sh*t and catching it on camera is funny. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones (word), decided to try it out with her friends.
The challenge is an Internet meme, in which a person attempts to swallow a tablespoon of ground cinnamon in under 60 seconds without drinking anything. Then you upload your success or failure to YouTube.
Williams hurls the cinnamon back like it’s a shot and blows it out of her mouth as though she’s doing a magic trick, but we can’t blame her. The cinnamon dries quickly in your mouth so it’s very difficult to swallow. Her friend asks: “why is it so entertaining? Watching people suffer?” I guess that’s just what Starks do.
