From record-breaking box office sales to a growing cultural presence, Marvel’s Black Panther is likely to be a film for the ages. Boasting an incredible cast and crew, the cinematic feature has grounded heartwarming friendships both on and off screen — as evidenced by Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan.
During the film’s press run, the duo appear to have made an undisclosed bet, which Jordan unfortunately lost. The penalty? On-demand pushups whenever Nygong’o requests them. In recent uploads to various social media channels, the Academy Award-winning actress has shared videos in which Jordan complies with her requests for a push-up.
With great power comes great responsibility, but Nyong’o appears to be handling it well. Examples include a request for a pushup at a Black Panther panel, Tom Ford’s Fashion show at New York Fashion Week, and more recently, the Creed actor’s dressing room before his appearance on talk show The View.
Naturally, the internet is here for it, and no doubt we’ll see a few more videos pop-up shortly. In the meantime, check out a few clips below and if you haven’t already, go cop a ticket to see Black Panther, which is currently playing in cinemas worldwide.
