The Most Absurd Internet Challenges Ever

Tide Pod Challenge
One of the most potentially dangerous challenges on this list involves eating Tide Pods on camera — say what? As NFL football player Rob Gronkowski warns us in a lightly humorous YouTube vid, the soap-filled packets should be used for washing your clothes, and nothing more.

In the wake of the viral trend, health experts issued warnings about the dangerous effects of consuming laundry detergent, while YouTube began pulling videos featuring the Tide Pod Challenge. We can't believe we have to say this, but, please don't eat Tide Pods. Thank you.
