Is The ‘Condom Snorting Challenge’ A Real Thing?
Believe it or not, the 'Condom Snorting Challenge' has been around since 2007 if not earlier. We're asking right along with you, 'Why would teens do this?'
The latest internet challenge has teens snorting condoms up their nose and pulling it out through their mouth. This is not new back in 2013 ABC News ran a story about a YouTube video uploaded in 2007. It shows the how the Challenge may have gotten more attention when YouTuber "Savannah Strong" posted on April 8, 2013, a video of her snorting a condom to the tune of Taylor Swift's "22."
ABC says part of what makes that particular video so popular is the beautiful young girl and the song playing is by Taylor Swift. Here is the original video. WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS. 96.1 THE EAGLE IS NOT PROMOTING THE CONDOM CHALLENGE IN ANY WAY.
The Mannequin Challenge was fun, and the Ice Bucket Challenge helped a good cause, but the rest of it is pure nonsense some are even deadly. Here's a recap of the worst we've heard about.
Cinnamon Challenge: Eat a spoonful of cinnamon and record yourself choking on it.
Tide Pod Challenge: Record yourself eating a Tide Pod and throwing it up.
The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge: Kids put a shot glass over their lips and suck it hard to make their lips swell up.
Choking Challenge: Teens choke themselves or a friend to get high.
Hot Coil Challenge: An electric stove top is turned on, and when it's red hot they put their hand or arm on the coil and hold it there as long as they can.
Butt Chugging: College students take a funnel and pour beer up their butt because they think they can get drunk quicker that way.
Vodka Soaked Tampons: Some say this is a hoax and we certainly hope so. It's called "slimming" girls insert the vodka-soaked tampons into their vaginas or into their rectums to get drunk quicker.
Trunking: When teens get their driving license they load their car trunk with passengers.
Vodka Eyeballing: college students tilt their head back and allow someone to pour a shot of vodka directly into their eyes. This gives them a super quick buzz when the alcohol enters the bloodstream via the veins at the back of the eye.
