The Running Man Challenge is the latest craze sweeping social media. A duo from the University of Maryland is responsible for the dance going viral.

Men's basketball student-athletes Jaylen Brantley and Jared Nickens appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday. 

Brantley and Nickens were joined by two high schoolers from New Jersey who first posted the Running Man video. Nickens said he saw the video on Instagram and decided to make a video of their own. 

For appearing on the show, Ellen gave Nickens and Brantley each a pair of boxer shorts with their names printed on the back.
