Kids are crazy these days. What with their music, and their cell phones, and their snorting condoms up their nose and threading it through their mouths while trying not to choke to death. The “Condom Challenge” is the latest in a long line of YouTube challenge trends, and involves sticking a condom up one’s nostril and weaving it back through the throat to then be coughed out of the mouth. Now, is there anything about that process that doesn’t sound like a fun idea? Oh, every single part of it sounds both dangerous and disgusting? Great. Good talk.
The challenge received attention after teenager Amber-Lyn Strong uploaded a video of herself completing the challenge (Congrats, Amber!) with Taylor Swift’s 22 playing in the background because nothing says “happy, free, confused, and lonely” at the same time like recording yourself sticking latex up your nose using a self-timer and tripod. Whether or not Amber actually understands what a condom is or does remains entirely unclear, as she remarks, “This thing’s long!” before inserting it up her nose.
