We have all heard of these viral challenges; The “Cinnamon Challenge”, The “Tide Pod Challenge” and most recently… the “Bird Box Challenge”. What do they all have in common…..You shouldn’t be doing them!
As of today, YouTube is removing any harmful stunts that might cause injury or promote dangerous behavior.
YouTube said in a statement, it will also ban “pranks that make victims believe they’re in serious physical danger, or cause children to experience severe emotional distress.”
What should Tide PODs be used for? DOING LAUNDRY. Nothing else.

Can’t believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE. We don’t know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes.
