This guy tried vaping a Tide pod and it didn’t go so well

Really don't try this at home...

An Instagram user has taken the Tide Pod Challenge to a new level by attempting to vape the laundry pods.

The Tide Pod Challenge has been a viral sensation in recent weeks, with people posting clips online of them trying to eat the detergent pods – despite warnings from Tide and health experts.

Despite the warnings, an Instagram user who specialises in vape tricks recently shared a video of himself trying to vape the liquid from a Tide pod. Needless to say, it doesn’t turn out so well.

The user later posted a PSA video in which he warned any copycats against similarly trying to vape Tide pods.

Tide recently warned people against eating the pods, tweeting a video that featured American football player Rob Gronkowski telling the kids to “say no” to pods.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) has also issued a warning, saying that “a meme should not become a family tragedy”.

According to Consumer Reports, Tide pods can be toxic because they can contain ethanol, hydrogen peroxide and long-chain polymers. These ingredients can burn the mouth, digestive system and stomach.

Ingesting the pods could also lead to gastrointestinal distress and respiratory arrest, and could even be fatal.
