DO NOT DO THIS OR TRY THIS! Do not smoke or eat laundry pods, detergents, other cleaning products and chemicals at all! It's sad we even have to say that as we kick off 2018 but it appears that we have to! Because just when you thought the latest "challenge" trend couldn't get any worse, someone basically says, "hold my beer".

From NME:

An Instagram user has taken the Tide Pod Challenge to a new level by attempting to vape the laundry pods.

Despite the warnings, an Instagram user who specialises in vape tricks recently shared a video of himself trying to vape the liquid from a Tide pod. Needless to say, it doesn’t turn out so well.

The user later posted a PSA video in which he warned any copycats against similarly trying to vape Tide pods.

The Instagram post/video has been deleted. However, here's more on the story...

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) has also issued a warning, saying that “a meme should not become a family tragedy”.
