The latest trend, thanks to the internet, is called the Zoom Challenge and yes it is silly, funny and potentially dangerous.  This one involves a rap song from Lil Yachty song "Mickey," and people acting like they're driving a car until a point in the song where Lil Yachty sings, "zoom." and another person out of the picture yanks the legs of the challenge-taker, causing the person to slide out of the video frame. You can imagine how this could be concerning as people are being yanked so fast that the hit the back of their heads on the ground. Many are small children and health officials are warning people of the risk of neck injuries, whiplash, and concussions by participating in the zoom challenge.
