Dangerous Tide Pod Challenge: 8 things you need to know

YouTube Wants You To Stop Eating Tide Pods Because 2018 Is Weird As Hell

The video mostly just consists of Gronkowski saying "no" to various questions. They have since deleted the video, although it still exists atViral Thread.

However, that's not the case with actual Tide pods, which have become a nightmare for first responders and health authorities in North America. Needless to say, it ends with him coughing out smoke, instead of blowing out the artsy rings that follow in the rest of the video.

YouTube is leading a crackdown on the so-called Laundry Pod Challenge after U.S. poison centres reported a spate of incidents involving teenagers ingesting laundry detergent.

Now, there are laundry pods you won't mind letting your kids eat - mainly because they're actually donuts. "I think that's the most important message", Doyon said. "If you look at data for liquid soap ingestion, just liquid soap ingestion by itself doesn't cause too many problems", St. Vincent Health's Dr. Joe Krug told Fox 59 in Indianapolis on January 10. Once that begins to dissolve, not only do you have that alcohol and that plasticky dissolving into your skin, then you've got the chemicals of the detergent so that can burn your esophagus. For most, the jokes were nothing more than an example of the internet's quirky sense of humour - but "the actual practice of biting into Tide pods appears to have intensified" over the New Year. They are designed only to clean clothes and only to be used in a washing machine. Google told CNNthey plan to comply.

Google, which owns YouTube, says it's community guidelines prohibit content meant to encourage risky activities. YouTube also considers these videos to be a violation of their policy, so in addition to removing the videos, they may penalize or deactivate these accounts entirely.

Burnham said if anyone knows someone who has ingested a soap pod they should call the Poison Control Center at 800-222-1222.

We often see an odd kind of challenge trending on YouTube and it feels like within days anyone and everyone on YouTube uploads a video taking part in the said challenge to provide content for their audiences.

Tide pods are colourful laundry detergent capsules sold in the United States that resemble those marketed in Britain by companies including Persil and Aerial.
