In a world (wide web) where it’s becoming harder and harder to tell what’s genuine and authentic rather than an elaborate hoax or ad campaign, it is with great displeasure I can say that this is not one of them.
There has been a long list of food stuff related hilarity on Youtube from the result of mentos meeting with coke, cat’s and jolly ranchers and lets face it, all kinds of gross shit. The following videos are no exception, as the official website cinnamonchallenge.com states ‘the challenge is simple, take one tablespoon of cinnamon and try to swallow it in 60 seconds without water’, easy right?
Well, not in the case of the first video when some demented bint bypasses the option of a teaspoon and opts for the rather less forgiving ladel leading to ‘dragon breath’, all clouds of cinnamon and dignity at an all time low.
If this reaction is a little excessive for you to truly believe the effects (or you just want to laugh at some morons) then check out the second. A couple of guys approach with bravado and differing cocksure methods of tackling the spice leading to ultimately the same fate.
And if after watching the videos you find that you still don’t believe its all that bad, try it out. Just make sure you’re over a sink and have the best part of a day to cough and spit cinnamon out your face.
