posted by Tige and Daniel -

If you thought there couldn't be a fad any dumber than the "Tide Pod" challenge, obviously you haven't been on the internet for very long. 

The latest idiotic trend sweeping the bowels of the internet is called the "Hot Coil Challenge" and experts say it could be the most dangerous one yet. The social media stunt requires participants to place their bare arms against the heated coils of an active stove, and hold it there for as long as they can. 

In a video submitted by user "Blackspider214" on Feb. 4th, an unidentified man can be seen pressing his forearm onto the red hot coils on a stove. The hissing sound of burning flesh is audible in the video that has been viewed over 400,000 times.
