If you don’t know by now, condom snorting -- yes you heard right – has become the latest trend on YouTube, with videos featuring kids inhaling condoms into their noses and pulling them out of their mouths as part of a “condom challenge.”

What may seem ridiculously funny really isn’t, and it has caught the attention of some famous faces, including Ellen DeGeneres, who are imploring kids to stop snorting condoms simply for the attention and YouTube hits.

In fact, YouTube has removed all of the condom snorting videos for violating its terms of service, including the video by YouTube user, "Savannah Strong," that received the most recent attention, where she snorts condoms while Taylor Swift's "22" plays in the background. 

What you may not know is this phenomenon has been around for a while, with one video posted in 2007, and not just in the U.S., according to ABC News

Like the public service announcement says, just stop it. It's not cute, and like the folks in the video caution, one of those condoms could get stuck in your windpipe. You don't want that to happen, now do you?

Watch the PSA below and spread it around:
