TikTok influencers are known to do ‘out-of-the-box’ videos to gain instant publicity but will you think of the dirtiest thing ever to just make some quick money and fame? For TikTok content creator Ava Louise, it was perfectly alright to lick the toilet seat inside an airplane bathroom to become ‘viral’ on TikTok. That’s right, someone can actually lick the toilet seat in a public toilet flying high in the sky and call it the “Coronavirus Challenge”.
The six-second viral is described by Louise: “Please RT this so people can know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane.” She then called it the “Coronavirus Challenge”.
As gross as it might sound, this video became immensely popular for all the wrong reasons and several other TikTok influencers started to follow Louise in this so-called “Coronavirus Challenge”.
Please RT this so people can know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane 🥰😅 https://t.co/x7GX9b4Lxc

Apart from the six-second fame and headlines bashing her, Louise reportedly made $4000 too from the publicity of this gross act.
She reportedly claimed that she had “disinfected” the toilet seat with Clorox before she licked it. And was happy about the fact that her video is “breaking the internet”.
Recently, a new TikTok challenge called the ‘skull breaker’ became a nightmare for parents and school authorities across the globe. In this TikTok challenge, three people stand side by side. The two people standing on the sides jump first, then the person standing in the middle is asked to jump as same. Now, as the person jumps, those on the sides kick him on his legs while he is in the air. Due to this, he gets a nasty fall which can lead to serious injuries.
Some other weird TikTok challenges include people applying super glue on their lips or following trends like ‘Bright Eye’ and ‘Outlet’ challenges. It goes without saying that these challenges are extremely dangerous and it is not a good idea to risk your health and life for a few seconds of fame.
