Many have since shared their versions of the iconic run.
However, it was only this week when what netizens believe is the best yet emerged out of Singapore.
The video comes from local filmmaker Jaze Phua, who specializes in action, comedy and romance.
On Feb. 9, he posted his first video for the challenge, and it has since garnered more than one million views on Facebook.
While that’s impressive enough, his second video truly won the world at 3.4 million views and counting.
This time, Phua went on full-cosplay as Naruto himself!
Once again, he’s accompanied by his friend Douglas Tan, who runs as Naruto’s rival Sasuke.

Phua’s mirror run videos clearly highlight his exceptional editing skills.
While everyone thinks his second video already won the challenge, Phua plans to make a third one — we’ll see if he can top himself.
