Teens summon Mexican demon in terrifying new Internet craze

A new internet craze called the CharlieCharlie challenge has taken the internet by storm.

The trend has seen a lot of young people experimenting with game which seems to be the ouija board-inspired. They claim they've been able to communicate with a sombrero-wearing Mexican ghost called Charlie that knows the answers to all life’s tricky questions. The game works by putting two pencils on top of one another in the shape of a cress cross with ‘yes’ and ‘no’ answers in opposing squares. You then summon the Mexican demon by the magical chant, “Charlie, Charlie, are you here?” and watch the top pencil move to give you an answer. Then, if the ghost answers yes, the demon will apparently answer whatever question you ask him/her.
Of course most of the questions have been about One Direction, Justin Bieber and even a few confirming conspiracy theories.

In an open letter to pupils at a Catholic school, Father Stephen McCarthy has said they're playing with fire if they play with ghouls.

"There is a dangerous game going around on social media which openly encourages impressionable young people to summon demons,” reads the letter.

"I want to remind you all there is no such thing as 'innocently playing with demons'."
