Celebrities Remake Elf on a Shelf Challenge

Elf on a Shelf throughout the years

Every Christmas, the elf makes his way back to many families' shelves and the tradition begins: parents place this famous elf in the weirdest places on a daily basis, with the sole purpose of being found by their children and many times photographed as the captions transition from weird to hilarious.

This goes on until Christmas Eve and inspiration for new and more creative poses and places, starts dimming as the days go by.

Tom Hanks is the elf on Elizabeth Banks

This morning, to create a twist on this yearly holiday tradition, Elizabeth Banks posted on instagram her version, with the caption "You've all heard of Elf on the Shelf... but have you heard of Hanks on Banks?"

And the challenge goes viral

Since then, multiple stars have created their memed version of Elf on a Shelf, humoristically playing with rhymes between themselves and their chosen "elf". So far we've seen the likes of quite a few posted on celebrities' instagram, like Ryan Seacrest, Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington and Mariah Carey.

It's still a long haul until Christmas Eve so expect a lot more rising to the challenge!
