People are recording themselves PEEING in their pants as a part of a disgusting TikTok challenge which has been dubbed the ‘Pee Your Pants Challenge’.
What allegedly started as a joke has now become a gross viral challenge on the TikTok platform, as people have started to recording themselves peeing in their pants.
The disgusting challenge mostly has male participants and usually, they are stood in front of their bathroom mirror whilst fully dressed, they then go on to proudly wet themselves with no shame.
On April 21, Liam Weyer, from Kansas, posted a clip of himself peeing his pants and it was suitably dubbed the ‘Pee Your Pants Challenge’.
In the video, the 19-year-old is shown wearing a t-shirt and shorts. He looks in the mirror and says: “Pee your pants challenge.”
It can then be heard by viewers as the pee hits the floor and slowly, a wet patch forms on his shorts.
Since being uploaded onto TikTok, thousands of people have watched as the young man wets himself for the amusement of others. However, TikTok removed the original clip, which lead to Liam reuploading the piece of viral footage.
Although some found the footage funny, others were appalled by the silly behaviour and some even blamed the coronavirus pandemic lockdown for leading people to act like this.
One person said: “I refuse to believe this video exists.”
Whilst another added: “People seriously need to get back to work soon…everyone has gone insane.”
Someone else agreed, commenting: “This lockdown is making people even more insane.”
Since the post went viral, Liam has insisted he only meant for it to be a spoof and didn’t think other people would actually copy him.
He told Insider: “I am definitely surprised that the challenge actually became a trend.
“I created the challenge as a parody of the other challenges that have gone viral on the internet in an attempt to show how pointless they are.
“I am surprised to see that people on the internet will pee themselves if you call it a challenge and add a hashtag.”
Despite the fact Liam never intended for it become a viral TikTok challenge, people have still followed his lead and copied the growing trend. Since the hashtag #peeyourpantschallenge started, it has had over 3.3 million views.
One of the most popular videos of the trend was recorded by @mentally7evan, who stood in a bathroom and filmed himself peeing whilst wearing a t-shirt and jeans.
Whilst the urine streams down his leg, he is shown actually laughing at himself. However, he is quickly groaning when he realises he’s stood in his own pee, which he pans the camera to.
Some took to the challenge in a slightly wiser fashion, by filming themselves in the bathtub.
The challenge has since been dubbed almost as bad at the toilet seat licking challenge that went viral around mid-March amid the coronavirus pandemic, which therefore prompted a huge amount of criticism from revolted critics.
