Just when you thought we're way past silly viral stunts like the infamous Tide Pod Challenge and the dangerous Pass Out Game, the teens of 2019 somehow found a way to one-up their predecessors with a new (and disgusting) Internet challenge

Yep, we've graduated from whacking cockroaches with slippers to straight up putting them on faces

As far as we can tell, the so-called "Cockroach Challenge" may have originated from Burmese teen Alex Yung. His Facebook post, showing a cockroach resting on his cheek, has been shared over 18,000 times at the time of writing. 

For some reason, young people from Myanmar as well as the Philippines and Indonesia decided to take on the challenge, and... ugh

Obviously, netizens are horrified by the newest viral stunt to plague the Internet because... WHY

We have no idea how this girl found so many cockroaches to put on her face, but here's hoping she really scrubs her face afterwards. :/

I hope that cockroach in your mouth is as rubber as it looks, young lady

The good news is, we haven't come across any "Cockroach Challenge" contenders from Malaysia... so let's keep it that way, guys. KILL IT WITH FIRE.

Never underestimate the extreme folly of teens. These are just some of the many Internet challenges we've seen in the past few years:
