The internet is a great place full of possibilities. It can also be a weird and confusing place in many ways, especially if you think about all the bizarre internet trends that we had so far. Not to mention that some of them were extremely dangerous and harmful. Still, people love these trends and challenges, and we don’t doubt there will be a lot more of them in the future. If you don’t remember these famous trends, take a look at the 5 most bizarre trends from the realm of the internet.  

1. Hot water challenge

Like we have mentioned, some of these challenges were dangerous and very painful. Pouring boiling water on yourself or drinking it is one of them. There was no particular point to this challenge, but that’s how it usually is with these types of trends. Not surprisingly, the participants suffered painful burns, and the challenge even ended in one death after a girl was dared to try the challenge. 

2.  Furry nails

There was a point in time where people believed furry nails were a great idea. Actually, a great number of people did because this quickly became a sensation. Suddenly everyone was gluing strands of fur on their nails and posting it on social media. Youtube tutorials were teaching you on how to do it as well as real nail salons adding fur nails into their catalog.

3. 100 layers

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you put 100 layers of foundation on your face or if you wore 100 shirts at the same time? You don’t have to wonder because chances are that someone has tried it when 100 layers trend was popular. As long as you apply 100 layers onto something, your video was sure to get thousands of views. 

4. Setting yourself on fire

Another one of the very dangerous internet trends that unfortunately left people with a lot of burns and questions about why they had thought this was a good idea in the first place. Some time ago it was very popular to pour flammable liquids onto yourself and, you guessed it, set yourself on fire for everyone to see on the internet. Why? That is a really good question that we still don’t have an answer to. 

5. Pimple popping

We are ending this list with the probably grossest and most satisfying internet trend – pimple popping, which is to this day very popular on various platforms including youtube and Reddit. Namely, you film yourself while popping a pimple, or getting your blackheads professionally extracted and you put the video on the internet. You’d be surprised how many people love watching the process and many say that it is very satisfying and calming to watch. We’ll take their word for it.
