After the ‘Blue Whale Challenge’ comes another dangerous ‘Skull Breaker Challenge’
The new challenge called Skull Breaker Challenge has become a dangerous fad on the internet.
Following on the dangerous trend of the Blue Whale Challenge comes another challenge that is inducing nightmares in parents. The new challenge called Skull Breaker Challenge has become a dangerous fad on the internet. This has become a prevalent trend on the social media app TikTok. The name of the challenge pretty much explains what the possibilities of the outcome can be. One of the other names of this challenge is tripping jump challenge. This also helps explain what this challenge involves.
What transpires is that three people stand by each other facing the camera. This begins as a gag where all three are supposed to jump at the same time. While the person in the middle jumps, the ones on either side don’t and wait to kick out the legs of the person in the middle. This results in the person in the middle falling on their back with the possibility of landing on the back of their head as well. Hence causing a grievous injury and this challenge has reportedly taken lives as well.
Though the Skull Breaker Challenge is being portrayed as a humorous one, one would be hard pressed to find the humor in injuring another person. Parents across the world are worried about the consequences of social media and peer pressure lead to dangers for their children. It would not be surprising if governments and institutions take a strong stance against this new fad, like they did in the case of the Blue Whale Challenge.

The skullbreaker Challenge is trending I urge you all to show your children and parents and teach them this is really dangerous. It can break skull and can cause some serious problem. This is not the first time an online trend has caused concerns. Social media is infamous for such outrageous and dangerous stunts such as the cinnamon challenge and the very famous Kiki challenge, which involved getting out of a moving car and dancing along it to rapper Drake’s song “In my feelings”.
This article is a very important read for everyone. It is strictly advisable to not follow such online trends.
I have heard about this game Skull breaker from this article only though I had heard about blue whale earlier. This article has opened my eyes towards the new threat to younger children and I thank the author for this. I would surely guide and child playing this game not to play it after reading this article.
