"Extreme Phone Pinching" Is Possibly The Most Nerve-Racking Internet Craze Yet

What's more fun than lightly gripping an expensive object over a cliff?

Posted on

Popularised by the music duo Twenty One Pilots back in July, Extreme Phone Pinching is the latest trend amongst adrenaline hungry teens, and it's NOT for the faint-hearted.

Just as the name suggests, extreme phone pinching involves holding your phone with your thumb and forefinger, and then dangling it over somewhere you wouldn't want it to fall.

And now the internet has taken the "sport" to the next level.

People the world over are dangerously dangling their precious phones in all kinds of perilous places.

Over water.

@joshuadun @tylerrjoseph extreme enough? #extremephonepinching

Out of moving vehicles.

Over confused ducks.

And from the beauty of national landmarks.

Rules do not exist in the game of extreme phone pinching.

The only limit is the player's imagination.

And their willingness to throw caution to the wind.

Some people are even using accessories, which is definitely not recommended.

Seriously, if you value your phone, maybe give this activity a miss.
