No matter what time period you find yourself in, there's going to be some strange and immature prank that your peers will pull on each other.
But while this means it would neither be fair nor realistic to claim we wouldn't have youths pulling annoying pranks if it weren't for TikTok, we do have to admit that the platform has helped nuisances spread farther and at a faster rate than before.
And that can be particularly problematic when someone comes up with a destructive prank that others also fancy themselves daring enough to do. Whether it involves stealing stuff from their schools or pouring beans on people's porches, it's often not long before the police or TitkTok itself have to step in and nip these trends at the bud.
Indeed, it seems that one new twist on an old classic has already crossed that threshold in the U.K.
