There's been a fair share of odd fads on the interwebs, and here comes yet another mind-boggling viral challenge: extreme phone pinching!

Here's how it works:
1) Hold your phone with just your thumb and pointer finger over a location you really wouldn't want it to fall into
2) Get someone's help to snap a photo a of you putting your (presumably expensive) phone in harm's way

And perhaps that's just the dose of adrenaline rush these courageous folks crave:

1. This mad chef who's a sweaty slip away from making smartphone fritters

2. This adventurer who's living life on the edge a little too literally

3. This daring driver who decided his routine drive home needed a little pizazz

4. This confident chap who's spicing up his bathroom breaks

5. This bada*s on a bridge

6. This brave soul who had grate expectations for the phone to survive

7. This dude with supernaturally strong nails

8. This trend-follower who was given a timely slap by Mother Nature herself

9. This easy-going girl who doesn't need much for amusement, just random cavities in floors

10. This guy who took the phone pinching thing a little too far...

Brace yourself! It looks like the trend is starting to hit Malaysia...

If you're gonna go down the pinching route, it might be a good idea to start thinking of a backup plan just in case your phone doesn't make it

If you're using the challenge as a convenient excuse to get a new phone, then it's about time to do a little research on the coolest new phone plans around
