If you've been cruising Facebook over the past three days you might have noticed your friend's profile pictures turning into giraffes.

I had the excellent opportunity to speak with Andrew Strugnell, the man behind the recent giraffe craze that's taking over the social media site.

Strugnell admits that he's not the guy who came up with riddle originally, but he wanted to spread it for all to enjoy.

It started out with a quick YouTube video which has already garnered over 50,000 views since Saturday, along with a Facebook Page that has over 30,000 likes.

What started out as a fun challenge amongst friends has led to Strugnell having over 13,000 Facebook messages to sift through. He says a website is on the way to automatically hand out answers to those curious enough to take a crack at the brainteaser, but remember if you fail, your Facebook profile image needs to become a giraffe for three days.

Strugnell believes he's tapped into what could become a new YouTube Channel dedicated to riddles. Make sure to keep an eye out...hint hint...
