Mankind has hit the bottom of the Tok.
Created in 2016 as a portal for short, funny clips, TickTock has recently become synonymous with something far more sinister: viral internet challenges.
Download the video-sharing app, and you’ll inevitably see opportunistic bosses risking their reputations and even bodies in front of the camera to influence social media – as if Snapchat was created by the Jackass guys.
In the most notorious trick recently, a TickToker woman spread to the hospital after trying to style her hair with gorilla glue.
Unfortunately, the application’s eye-searching algorithm makes it extremely difficult for these often harmful trends to rise to the top before they metastasize to the Internet.
To help readers know what to avoid, we’ve put together a list of challenges that are so ridiculous that we might want to reconsider the TickTock ban.
1. A gorilla glue girl
This may not be a challenge in itself. However, Louisiana’s Tessica Brown undoubtedly cemented her place on Mount Rushmore to Tick Tok’s stupidity after she cut her hair with Gorilla glue and had to surgically repair it during a four-hour procedure.
Unfortunately, this caution story may not hold up because Brown’s glue brought her $ 20,000 in donations, hundreds of free hair products, and even a full-time agent – not to mention an unfortunate impersonator.
2. Independent vampire tides
Speaking of the “Super Glue” fiasco, holiday celebrities went viral last Halloween after gluing a costume vampire to their teeth. Clips worthy – which, using the hashtag #VampireFangs, garnered over 9 million views – showed various bosses struggling to remove artificial champs after attaching them to cutters with Super Glue, nail glue and other adhesives.
Get in touch: Dentists have advised against this practice, citing the fact that nail polish “is poisonous and will not come off”.
3. Teeth submission
In the realm of TickTock toothless challenges, DIY vampire stings are pale in comparison to these amateur beauticians remodeling their nail clippers.
For the uninitiated, the challenge involved a variety of nooks and crannies trying to fix their uneven smiles with the help of nails to sand their snack slices to size. It was essentially the equivalent of an enameloplasty bin – an enamel reshaping procedure that one would receive from a cosmetic dentist.
However, unlike the latter, these freelance molar negotiations have caused outrage from the dental community.
“You’re doing irreparable damage and tooth decay,” said Dr. Chad Evans, co-founder of the Smile Magic Family Dental in Texas.
4. Challenge for waxy faces
Complete facial waxing is a hot new beauty fashion with numerous procedures that collect millions of TickTock views.
The procedure, demonstrated by the Capsalon Freedom barber shop in the Netherlands, involves squeezing the patient’s face – including the eyes – with dark green wax as if casting a mold for the horror film House of Wax. They even have wax P-tips stuck in the nose to extract annoying nasal hairs. When finished, the enemy beautician peels the beauty dough from the subject’s face into one piece as a mask for negative villains.
Dermatologists call this process traumatic “for the skin, especially sensitive areas, such as those around the eyes.”
5. Erection cream plumper
TickTock’s beauticians have redefined the maintenance of a hard upper lip after trying to fill their feces with a camera erection cream. While an influencer managed to turn his flap to the proportions of a living raft, he had to stop the trick early because of the burning sensation.
Doctors, meanwhile, said the hacker was “completely ridiculous and could be extremely dangerous”, adding that the “temporary” procedure could lead to side effects, including pain, swelling and blisters, as well as blood pressure fluctuations and “possible problems with the heart. “
6. The challenge of corn cob
As part of a series of viral paintings, the entrepreneur TickTokers tried to speed up the consumption of corn by eating catnip stuck to a rotating exercise. The feat of Luoni Tons has garnered international attention after rapper Asoneson Derulo chipped his tooth while performing a trick.
However, the cracked core of the Anaconda did not stop him from trying to inhale 22 burgers a month later to mark the reach of 22 million TickTock followers.
7. Cereal Challenge
This may seem creepy from the start, but it can also have potentially dangerous consequences. In this test of a will, a person pours milk and cereal into the open mouth of a person lying down and then eats breakfast from a human “plate”. Needless to say, things can be obtained super, super messy, not to mention it became a danger of suffocation for the volunteer.
TickTock provides an extensive list of “community guidelines” stating that the company does not allow “content that is overly gruesome or shocking, especially as it promotes or glorifies extreme violence or suffering.” It also points out “risky activities or other dangerous behavior” that is not permitted, including activity that “encourages, promotes or glorifies such behavior, including amateur stunts or dangerous challenges”.
8. Skull switch challenge
The title says it all.
This viral craze – supposedly originating in Venezuela as a “romprecaneos” or “skull breaker” – shows three friends (loosely used to the term) jumping next to each other as post buds throw the middle boy’s feet out from under him. The action sends the person who falls to the ground, descends on his back and hits his head in the process.
Not only has the alarming trend led to injuries in Miami, New Yorkers and Arizona, but Dayton Beach, Florida police have charged two high school teens with misdemeanor battery and computer harassment following an incident there. In addition, two students in Mexico made their own version of a “skull breaker”, but reportedly used a sweater instead of legs to stop the girl from making a face factory.
Doctors unexpectedly condemned the practice for the potential to cause “serious and life-threatening injuries”, ranging from “skull fracture to paralysis and death”.
9. Penny Challenge
This shocking fashion involves slipping a penny behind a partially plugged phone charger, as seen in a number of viral videos circulating on YouTube and TikTok.
While the joke may seem harmless, the coin could hit metal rims, causing “sparks, damage to electrical systems and, in some cases, fires,” warned Massachusetts firefighter Marshall Peter J. Ostroski in the advisory council issued last year.
Case: Marshall received a photo of a burned-out exit in Holden, allegedly caused by a viral joke. In another incident, a student at Plymouth North High School allegedly started a fire after challenging what Plymouth School Principal Dr. Gary Maestas called an “irresponsible act.” Fortunately, no one was injured – but the accidental arsonist was charged with the crime.
10. Benadryl Challenge
This inflammatory challenge, which involved taking enough Benadryl to hallucinate and posting footage on the video-sharing platform, resulted in the death of a 15-year-old Oklahoma girl last year.
This, along with several other near-fatal incidents, prompted pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson and the FDA to issue PSAs warning teens not to abuse antihistamines.
The latter warned: “Taking higher than recommended doses of the common allergy-free drug diphenhydramine (Benadril) can lead to serious heart problems, seizures, coma and even death.”
11. Cha-Cha Slide Challenge
This hilarious TickTock trend included teenage drivers spinning around the road in time like maniacs with the acrobatic dance anthem of the same name, first released 20 years ago by DJ Casper. Mr. C, slide.
Despite the obvious risks, the TickTock storm reportedly hit the trend, reportedly causing several near-accident accidents for participants. “The car almost overturned,” reads the caption to a video of a TickToker performing a trick with friends.
TikTok warns viewers of several clips that “the action of this video could result in serious injury”.
12. Write down the challenges of the pants
Nothing can be avoided from coronavirus tablets like viral video leaks, right? At least that’s what he thought of an annoying lightstreamer when he heard nature calling in front of the camera, inspiring many other lonely TikTokkers to follow Pied P-Per’s example.
The hashtag #peeyourpantschallenge currently garnered 3.9 million views on TickTock, as well as much criticism from horrific commentators.
“People seriously need to get back to work soon. . . “Everyone went crazy,” one burst out.
13. Dung challenge
In an even healthier trick, these locking parents smeared feces on their offspring and recorded their reactions to anxiety. The WTF seemed like a huge reaction.
14. Challenge of verbal abuse
These mothers and fathers abducted their children figuratively calling them “mistakes” and in some cases mentioning the word “interruptions”.
15. Flash crowd
These mothers took care of locking in the titration fashion by exposing their babies’ breasts and recording their tempting reactions.
Named the #DropEmOutChallenge, these jockey moms post their videos with Wheeler Walker junior’s song “Drop ‘Em Out” playing in the background. Country lyrics are especially suitable for this game.
“Throw them out, let me see them,” the 2015 country song said. “Take a long look at these juvenile cats.”
Seemingly behind the camera, mothers carried it all to their hungry, breastfed babies, recording excited expressions.
16. The “immersion” challenge
Salt turned to the worst thanksgiving for this salty jam on social media.
After months of boredom in the house due to the pandemic, in June, men voluntarily dipped their unhealthy into small containers of soy in the hope of tasting the salty Asian spice – commonly used to enhance the taste of sushi – on their tongues.
Tasty testicles have emerged from a 2013 study that found that mice can determine taste through the testicles.
After the challenge hit the digital time frame, the boys everywhere unpacked their flies and used the good ones as salted napkins in the name of science.
17. Darkening Challenge
Also known as “grazing challenge” and “fainting game,” participants in the deadly, albeit popular, exclusion challenge dared to strangle themselves until a few seconds passed.
A 10-year-old girl in Italy tied a belt around her neck and accidentally suffocated in January. She was rushed to a hospital in Palermo where doctors eventually pronounced her brain dead.
TikTok encouraged users to tag all account holders involved in the dangerous trend.
18. “The Coronavirus Challenge”
Carps do you have a tongue ??
Ava Louise, a regular search for Dr. Phil, was chasing a mustache into the clouds in March when she went viral about licking toilet seats on a plane.
Insensitively calling her disgusting digital demonstration a “coronavirus challenge”, Lewis, 22, took to cyberspace to hell with her tones.
19. Challenge the silhouette
The seduction of small screens hit hard, as perverts found a way to bring a brazen trend to an eerie end.
Initially, the hot ones went to TickTock to show off their amazing bodies behind the red filter that covered their private parts. But the unusual freaks found a way to remove the filter and watch out for women who could not be mentioned.
PSAs that warn lustful ladies about violating the privacy of the virus have gone viral. And naturally, the sexy challenge slipped into the shadows.
