Another unfortunate event comes out of the Rotating Corn Challenge this week, and I actually feel bad for the guy.
Our parents taught us not to play with power tools for a pretty good reason, and now we have people out there putting cobs of corn on them, then into their mouth. Lets not forget that there’s a possibility of the drill bit actually hitting your teeth, mouth or face, and doing some serious damage.
The full video is quite graphic, so viewer beware. It involves a lot of blood and a massive meltdown once he realizes what he just did.
Buh-bye two front teeth, hellooo massive dental bill! (and maybe even an ER visit with that much blood and any other damage the power tool did)
My question is: What do you think is going to happen when you put something on a POWER DRILL that’s spinning that fast up against your teeth? This is one of the scariest challenges I’ve seen yet, and would prefer not to see any other people get hurt because they tried to eat something off of a power tool.
There could be a trick to it, like being sure to cook the corn so its softer, or not holding down the drill trigger all the way… or maybe you just need gums of steel. The cob definitely gained some speed wobbles too, so maybe the side to side motion combined with the ultra fast spinning is what popped his two teeth out so fast.
I’m probably not going to try it to find out, and we are not condoning this nonsense.
People are definitely doing it successfully, unlike this girl who lost half her head of hair a few months back trying to complete the mindless challenge:
