If your first day of work after the bank holiday has left you with a headache then don’t worry we’ve got a solution for you – paracetamol.
However, if you’re not the type to use licensed medication then we have the next best thing – a YouTube video!
A number of people have sworn that this video, by YouTuber ‘Kamil’, can cure even the most blinding of headaches and you don’t even need to send him your credit card details or a scan of your passport to be cured, all you need to do is answer three simple questions.
In his online tutorial, Kamil repeats the same three questions again and again, and apparently by the end of the vid, your headache should have faded.
Over 1.7 million people have watched the video so far and many swear by it.
In the video, Kamil says:
I’m going to ask you a few questions, and I will ask you those questions a few times. Every time I ask you the question I really want you to have a look and answer the question.
He then gets the viewer to think about their headache asking: ‘Where is your headache?’ followed by ‘What colour is it?’ and ‘What shape is it?’
After asking each of the questions four times, he says: “By now it should be gone.”
Unfortunately, and surprisingly, no one in our office had a headache at time of writing so we couldn’t test out Kamil’s video, but we’re open minded people so we’re going to believe the majority of people who seem to think this actually isn’t bullshit.
Kamil, who isn’t a doctor, has explained his medical miracle, saying: “Most headaches are actually created by you – by your own mind’ and that people stress too much, causing headaches.
While Kamil may not be a doctor, he’s certainly a master of stating the bleeding obvious…
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
