banana peel

Every few years, it seems teenagers come up with something stupid to photograph or film themselves doing and they’ve done it again.

The latest trend is called the #BananaPeelChallenge and it sees YouTubers testing out what we all grew up watching on cartoons, that if you walk on a banana peel, you’ll slip and fall hard.

The trend began after Twitter user Jason Oakes posted his experiment with a banana peel, which proved that the outer part of the fruit is indeed slippery, assuming the video wasn’t faked.

That led to countless other teens following suit. Many videos show people who don’t believe the peel will make them fall, only to go down seconds later.

Be careful out there if you decide to take part in the #BananaPeelChallenge!
