British Forces Brunei and 1st Battalion, The Royal Gurkha Rifles have released this incredible 22 Push-up Challenge video:

One commenter on Facebook said:
 
 
Those participating in a 22 push up video record themselves stating their name and why they’ve accepted the challenge before doing 22 press-ups before calling out three friends to do the same.
 
The videos are then posted on social media using the hashtags #22pushup and #22Kill.
