A new YouTube challenge is putting teenagers in real danger.
The "challenges" sparked on YouTube can often be fun and silly. Like the chubby bunny challenge where friends have to stuff their mouths with marshmallows and say "chubby bunny" (which can be dangerous in it's own right, I guess). Or the "boyfriend does my make up" challenge. Harmless, right?
This latest craze amongst teens on YouTube is putting them in real danger of choking and suffocating. As seen in the video below, 3 girls snort (yes, SNORT) condoms through their noses and attempt to pull them out of their mouths. After much gagging and choking they accomplish the disgusting feat. Not without a bit of vomit though. (Sorry about that.) These videos are getting huge amounts of views on a daily basis and it can only be fueling the condom-snorting fire.
Watch the video (and don't try this at home!)
I have to gape in awe at just how stupid teenagers can be. How does this in any way seem like a great idea? Then I have to wonder if their parents know what kids will do to get a few views on YouTube...
Do you know what your kids are really getting up to online?
