A 2016 Youtube video from Brad Holmes has resurfaced this week as ‘cloutlighting’ is becoming worryingly popular online.
Dubbed the next horrible form of ‘gaslighting’, the concept of cloutlighting involves men pulling extreme pranks on their partners and uploading distressing footage on social media with the sole purpose of gaining more followers.
The video originally uploaded to Facebook shows the notorious social media prankster rubbing a sliced chilli on his partner’s tampon, before secretly filming the results.
As well as recording Jenny Davies inserting the tampon, Holmes also captured her pleading for help from her grandmother.
“Nan, my vagina is on fire,” she says, clutching her crotch. “You can feel the heat coming off it.”
She is then filmed attempting to flush her genitals with water, as Holmes laughs and holds up the chilli, triumphantly revealing what he’s done.
You can watch a snippet of the disturbing video below. Post continues after video.
The clip, which has been removed from Holmes’ page, proved disturbingly popular on social media, with Facebook users sharing it more than 22,000 times in a single day, and many news outlets reporting on how “hilarious” it was.
