This loopy combo shortly collapsed.
Thought gender reveal events and TikTok challenges weren’t harebrained sufficient on their very own? One idiotic couple determined to mix the unstable pastimes by disclosing the intercourse of their child whereas trying the extremely harmful “Milk Crate Problem” — with disastrous outcomes.
A video of their backfired feat presently boasts hundreds of thousands of views on Twitter.
For the (maybe gratefully) uninitiated, the viral Milk Crate Problem entails attempting to ascend a staircase-like stack of plastic bins. Whereas seemingly easy on its face, the stunt typically leads to the participant falling from a harmful peak and probably injuring themselves, which has resulted within the excessive jinks getting banned on TikTok.
Nonetheless, one chuckleheaded man tried to include the foolhardy feat into his gender reveal get together by scaling the milk crate Kilimanjaro whereas holding a parcel containing both blue or pink powder.
The viral video reveals the bozo wobbling as he reaches the midway level, inflicting the crates to break down like a Jenga stack, whereupon he topples off and hits his head on a field. In the course of the unceremonious fall, the blue powder will get launched into the air, signifying that the newborn is a boy.
The clip concludes with the get together friends, together with the pregnant mother-to-be, going buckwild over the outcome.
Suffice it to say, the head-cracking stunt didn’t sit properly with social media.
“About to be a father and taking these kinds of dangers together with his life for a viral video … Lordt,” tweeted one unamused viewer.
One other wrote, “Two factors: The bar is actually low out right here. Let’s all pray for that little child boy. RIGHT NOW.”

“That stomach appears pretend as hell and she or he appears to be waaaay late right into a being pregnant to seek out out the intercourse of the newborn,” wrote one skeptic, whereas one other added, “This must be pretend. Her abdomen is principally at her chest.”
In the meantime, some postulated that the video was poking enjoyable at our tradition of clout-seeking web stunts. “That is performed mockingly, proper?” puzzled one netizen. “They’re too into it for it to not be parody on some degree.”
One other quipped that at the very least this gender reveal get together didn’t “begin a forest fireplace,” as was the case with one other pyrotechnical intercourse unveiling bash in California final fall.
