We all love trying new stuff and following the latest trends. And, the internet has been a great way of reach out to these freshest trends, ever concocted.
This year also, copious trends hit the globe. Alternatively, of some fashion and fitness trends, there are many viral trends which came up to be totally dumb.
While most of them stayed in the green zone, many of them crossed the line of being somewhat unacceptable to the downright bizarre.
Take a look at these bizarre trends of this year!
It is also known as "five finger fillet." It is a game, where a person needs to place his hand on a table with fingers spread apart, stabbing back and forth between the fingers with a knife without cutting himself/herself. The most atrocious part is, you need to do this while singing "the knife song."
How can a grim thing be a trend?
This trend definitely doesn't come close to the conventional uses of the condom. The viral trend hit took off at the starting of this year, it involves two people, one sitting on the chair while other is dropping a water-filled condom onto the head of the person sitting.
Bizarre? I think so.
The trend started hitting off in 2015 but it continued to remain at the top in 2016 as well, the Kylie Jenner challenge has garnered over hundreds and thousands of tweets, Vines, and Instagram tags. What so cool about it? Well, it's actually kind of weird. The world of massive teens attempted to achieve her juicy lips. How? Just four words- shot glass and suck.
Now, who came up with this stuff?
The duct tape challenge is a recent "thing" that has been trending online. During the challenge, participants are tied with the adhesive up for three minutes, and then have additional three minutes to escape.
And, this could be the dumbest way for women to demonstrate their feminity. Women are posting pictures of an impressive range of objects nestled under their breasts on the internet.
The strange idea seems to be "real woman" are buxom and one need impressive cleavage to hold the object in place.
Can you swallow a spoonful of raw cinnamon within 60 seconds without drinking water? You can't, and even if you can, you shouldn't.
This trend involved a person in taking a tablespoon of cinnamon (yes, the raw one) and eating the entire spoonful at once. And guess what? Every contestant ends up coughing the cinnamon out into a cloud of cinnamon dust.
This challenge asked participants to plank in "peculiar" locations. Although it sounds all fun and games, the popularity of this trend generated high-level controversies when it encouraged people to perform dangerous acts.
This trend came up on the weird list, as of because the "strange" locations people chose to carry out this deed, including, washrooms, shopping malls, over the public dustbin, on a tiger. Can you guess more?
CD flicking came up when you take two CDs and put them on the arm of your glasses (one per arm). Then flick your head, so the discs end up covering your eyes in the back of the lenses.
What the heck is there in the stuff to be trending? The only funny part comes up, when people who tried this trend and their glasses go flying off their head.
It's your time to perform some acts and rate these trends on the scale of 5. The dumbest trend would be scored 5 and less stupid will be 4 or less.
Have you tried any of these? And, do you know some more weird trends? Do tell us by leaving your comments.
