As if teenagers aren’t up to enough madness, the latest, and by far the dumbest, fad amongst them is an addiction aerosol burns.
There are several videos online where kids are ‘showing off’ their ability to tolerate aerosol burns.
The procedure is simple. They spray themselves directly on the skin for 10 seconds or more to show how much pain they can bear.
Yes it is as painful as it looks. But what is a little pain for 10 seconds of internet glory.
It seems the youngsters are at it to outdo each other.
If you think the video above is painful and dangerous, there’s worse to come.
Spray yourself with aerosol and then set yourself on fire. Yup it’s that simple. Thankfully, in the video that a group of youngsters put on YouTube, they had a friend standing by with a towel handy to extinguish the fire within seconds.
Is it really worth exposing oneself to such hazards?
The aerosol challenge has been taken on by teenagers in Britain and South America. The youngsters are not only mutilating themselves, but also boasting about it.
Brushing the pain aside, these teenagers seem to revel in the fact that they are scarring themselves.
