Don’t try this at home.
If you give teenagers a challenge and instruct them to upload a video of themselves to the internet, you can make them do anything.
The birth of social media means teenagers have been finding new ways to injure themselves for the sake of a few giggles from their Instagram/SnapChat/Facebook gang. And, with a little encouragement from the likes of the Jackass crew, the stunts have become ridiculous and risky.
Don’t believe me? I give you The Condom Challenge.
The premise of the Condom Challenge is simple: get a friend to drop a condom full of water on your head. Because condoms are designed, for obvious reasons, to be resistant to breakage, the water-filled condom stretches to fit the shape of your head. It covers your mouth and nose! You can’t breathe! It’s hilarious!
It’s sort of like the Ice Bucket Challenge – except it’s not raising funds for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and it’s dangerous.

Kids these days. What’ll they think of next?
Do you know anyone who’s participating in the Condom Challenge?
