Focus on #zoomchallenge, another (less) less dangerous challenge
It's now a tradition in summer, challenges or challenges spread quickly on the net. This one is funny, but not without risk.
Social networks are a mine of new ideas, new trends. This new challenge, which arrived on the canvas shortly after the #inmyfeelingschallenge, is also based on a song, namely the song "Mickey" by rapper Lil Yatchy.
A challenge that makes you smile thanks to the funny scenes that the videos offer, but which at the same time makes the parents mad as their children can get seriously hurt while trying to make this little waterfall.
The principle is relatively simple, since the participants sit on the floor, alone or accompanied in the clip, jiggling on the first notes of the piece. When the word "zoom" is pronounced in the song, they are suddenly pulled by the feet (an accomplice is hidden behind the scenes to make the turn) to disappear from the field of vision of the camera.
It is precisely this sudden movement that is controversial and worries since young actors can violently injure their head when pulled by the feet. If the person being shot is not careful, his or her head can hit the ground, which can lead to trauma to the neck, vertebrae or brain. Neck injuries or concussions would be dramatic consequences.
Pets are sometimes staged, dogs and cats are suddenly pulled by the legs which can inflict serious injury or cause stress. Animals are not toys, must we really remember it?

Prevention is better than cure if this challenge tempts you, using a mattress on the floor or filming you in a bed or on a softer surface. It may be less impressive but just as funny and much less risky for your health or that of the little ones.
