Teenage Fads in the News

Local News Is Concerned About Teens” (NowThis) -- Last Week Tonight, 2018, 0:54 -- https://youtu.be/2DqKz1w6Lug?t=2s

A funny compilation of local news segments on dumb teenage fads. Why do teens feel the urge to do such silly (and often dangerous) things? Perhaps we can connect this to youth culture, deviance, group behavior, and fads. Furthermore, these can be contextualized within the larger phenomenon of social media challenges (e.g., the tide pod challenge). What teen trends were not mentioned here? And how can we prevent harmful fads from going viral?
