Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge? People pouring buckets of freezing water over themselves. That was fun, wasn’t it? And for a good cause.
Well this new trend is similar in some respects, but it’s kind of stupid and doesn’t really have the same charitable foundation. Basically people snort a line of coke and then nominate someone else to do the same.
Yep. That’s it. A new online trend, doing coke and encouraging your mates to do it too.
It started in Mexico, where the press have described it as a challenge for the wealthy members of society. It’s known as ‘Reto del pasesito’, and is has been widely shared on social media – it even had it’s own Facebook page before the social media giants took it down.
Not very imaginative of them. I hope the next internet fad is something a little more interesting. Oh, and doesn’t run the risk of rotting participants’ flesh.
