CSB:

When I was at Maryland a truck drove through the brick wall at the main entrance to the campus (everyone was ok). While repairing the brickwork they hung a banner over the hole with something generic like "Maryland, always improving" or some such. But then some frat had the idea to do this

Dear journalists, when writing about someone who has damaged some other person's property, the correct term to use is "crime", not "prank".

It would not surprise me in the least if the company itself doesn't have a marketing team that has this as one of their responsibilities.  Like, not directly 'issuing' them, but probably something more along the lines of first letting things play out naturally and if nothing has gone viral in the media after X amount of time then looking through low-engagement posts for candidates to boost visibility of either through their algorithms or through 3rd party mid-level influencers (popular enough to get traction but not so famous as to seem fake/suspicious) they financially compensate for doing whatever the "thing" is they want to try to go viral.

When I was a kid I loved playing "Kool Aid Man" but that involved making a wall with these then smashing through them:

When I see videos idiots causing property damage (busting through fences, drywall, doors) it really irks me. It's usually at a party at someone's house and some idiot wants to see if he can dive through a window, then everyone cheers.
Meanwhile I'm thinking "WTF?  Whoever owns that house has to fix that now. "

I guess I'm just getting old.

I take the minimalist approach. Slowly crawl through a beaded curtain at a house party wearing a bright red shirt then collapse on the floor. When someone checks too see if I'm all right I say "Oh Yeah!"

Of course these idiots are aimlessly running fast ... after all the damage from eating a diet of frozen honey, tide pods, corn-on-the-cob-on-a-drill-bit, and other viral Tiktok delicacies, you lose your sense of direction and perception.

I wonder if it is like the episode of Family Guy where there was an island where all the jokes were created and now they branched out into creating tik tok challenges. Or it is just Russia and China seeing if they can kill off stupid Americans.

They didn't drink Kool Aid at Jonestown. Like all church functions, they went with the generic version Flavor Aid because it was cheaper. They probably also had those cheap Oreo knock offs just to add one last indignity.

The Kool-Aid Man is merely a jug - a sentient jug whose morning routine is filling himself with water and then pouring some Kool-Aid powder into his head, so he can then crash through walls and provide sugary goodness to the neighborhood kids. He's a jug, and nothing more.

He's the sum of all parts.

The liquid Kool Aid is his blood and innards.

The jar his bones.

He's like a see through crustacean.

I assume this is fake (in that a single digit number of people ever did it), like all other social media "challenges" written about by journalism jokes like the NY Post.

Wait- Hydrox or the really awful crumbly ones from the bulk foods section of your generic grocery store?

Because while I have never been able to claim Oreos as a personal fave, the latter are an affront to all gods and mankind.

I'm hoping to see the one where someone tries to crash through a wooden privacy fence, not those vinyl, barely stand up in a stiff breeze abominations.  Splinters, old rusted nails, and the cross piece at throat level.  Oh yeah.

This isn't a thing.  There's a handful of fences you could actually do that to.  Have fun smashing your bodies against my wooden privacy fence.  Who's driving around looking for this specific PVC fence?

I have never been at a party or indeed any event where someone did something like that.  sounds like you hang out with asshats.

I am glad social media was not around when I was a kid in the 80s, the dumb stuff we did and got away with (most of the time) and we didn't film most of it except on VHS. All social media did was show the morons and there are a lot of them out there.

It's not a real Kool-Aid challenge unless it's a brick wall.

Anyone can go through drywall, an old wooden fence, or those cheap plastic fence-like things they construct today.

Hell, a strong wind will take out most plastic "fences".
