2. Parkour

God, this is hard to watch. Not too long ago, the People of the Internet got a little too cocky. “Oh yeah, we can handle laying face down on the ground, we’re definitely ready to get our Tarzan on and start jumping between houses and shit.”

3. The Cinnamon Challenge

Bless all the now-famous YouTubers who thought this silly challenge would catapult them to super-stardom. While slightly amusing at best, the cinnamon challenge is nothing to mess with.
