About The #TWIZZLERCHALLENGE And #NYC4A
The #TwizzlerChallenge was started by MeredithÂ Vieira after she saw a comedy segment on NightÂ of Too Many Stars in whichÂ a Twitter user, @FredKatz, nominated Willie Geist (TODAY) & Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), to reenact the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp with a piece of licorice during the live telethon. Vieira then invited Geist on her own show to do the scene again, branded it â€œThe Twizzler Challengeâ€ and donated $5,000 to NYC4A.
The challenge has grabbed the attention of numerous celebrities, news personalities and thousands of people across the country inspired to make a difference.
