The internet strikes again …

As with every other random viral trend, the Condom Challenge also started simply enough. A couple of Asian guys in oddly matching underwear filled a condom with water dropped the thing on the other’s head, and token hilarity ensued. Within hours there were thousands upon thousands of retweets and subsequent copy cats worldwide, and now? It's the hottest thing in head-water-dropping.

Here’s everything you need to know about it:

1. It has nothing to do with the Ice Bucket Challenge, or anything for that matter.

Unlike the generous and righteous idea behind the Ice Bucket Challenge, which has collected large sums of money to combat ALS a terrible progressive neurodegenerative disease, the Condom Challenge raises absolutely no money for anyone or anything whatsoever.

It's sole purpose is to entertain, and entertain it does.

2. It’s a great way to die if you're into that kind of thing.

The extreme elasticity of the condom combined with the quick, uneven onslaught of water often times ends with the condom wrapping itself around the person’s skull with the majority of the water still intact, trapping said imbecile in a temporary fishbowl-like state that may or may not block the flow of oxygen to their lungs.

… Which, if you think about it, is a great way to end it all! It seamlessly combines drowning with asphyxiation, packing a 2-for-1 punch that promises to ensure that your genes won't pee in the gene pool of the human race.

God only knows this could somehow actually go wrong and no one wants their official coroner’s cause of death to be a hashtag, or maybe you do, in that case, g’head… more turkey and dressing for the rest of us.

3. Okay, it's pretty funny …

Barring any sort of untimely demise, the videos themselves are impossible to not watch. They're strange and dumb enough to justify a few streams. Plus, unlike trying it out in our own living rooms, there’s no risk involved and consequently no clean up. Hi, and goodbye, idiots of the internet.

4. It's more viral than drug-resistant herpes. 

The internet is awash with Condom Challenge videos, and you can expect more to come as its virality expands. It’s already ballooned enough that it has its own official Twitter page, because of course it does.

Why? Because people just really, really love it when water gets dropped on them. Doesn't matter if it's icy or inside a sexual prophylactic device … as long as someone's getting H2O'ed, there will be peace on earth. Plus, the Condom Challenge makes your face look weird. Cooooool.

These are the things that really matter.
