On the social video sharing website, and second largest search engine, YouTube, there are videos for nearly everything and anything imaginable. One of the latest trends that are turning into an entire genre of viral videos is the idea of specific challenges, where a person tries to complete a challenge on film. Most of these end up in abject failure, which actually makes for some entertaining videos. Here are a few of the most viral challenges.
10 of the Most Viral and Funniest Youtube Challenges on the Web are :
The Cinnamon Challenge
In the Cinnamon Challenge, a person must eat a full tablespoon of the spice without drinking water. Unlike some other powders, cinnamon is difficult for the body to break down and almost always causes the person attempting the challenge to gag or vomit.
The Ipecac Challenge
Another vomit inducer, the Ipecac Challenge requires a person to take ipecac without vomiting. As an expectorant, ipecac is made especially for this purpose, most commonly used in cases of poisoning and responsible for a number of potentially dangerous side effects.
The Ghost Chili Challenge
Known as the hottest pepper on earth, the Bhut Jolokia, or Ghost Chili, can take even the most seasoned spice experts to an intense burning pain. Many have attempted to eat it and many have failed ridiculously.
The Mouse Trap Challenge
Another viral challenge making its way around YouTube is one involving a mouse trap where a person must take the bait without getting a finger caught in the mechanism. The most famous video captures the challenge in slow motion.
The Cracker Challenge
Similar to cinnamon, the dry nature of Saltine crackers makes them incredibly difficult to eat quickly without water. The official challenge is to eat five in one minute and it is much more difficult than it looks.
The Egg Nog Challenge
A Yuletide favourite, the Egg Nog Challenge is based on a popular dare that appeared on the Jackass Show. All a person has to do is drink 50 shots of egg not to win. Seems simple, right?
The Milk Challenge
Long rumoured to be impossible, there are videos on YouTube that appear to show a person drinking an entire gallon of milk without throwing up. The official rules are that a person has one hour to drink the milk and complete the challenge.
The Dollar Menu Challenge
The premise of this one is that a person needs to eat one of everything from the $1 menu at the Wendy’s as quickly as possible. The current known record is 13 minutes and 13 seconds, but most attempts do not make it close before puking.
The Raw Onion Challenge
It may seem to be easy to eat a raw onion, but the world record of 1 minute and 30 seconds is something special. Try it yourself to see where you stand against the competition.
