The internet these days is dominated by visual content. From funny images to entertaining videos, this type of media is easy to consume, doesn’t take much effort, and one can sift through hours and hours of unending content. So it’s no wonder that videos are often the type of file that goes viral.
Just a couple of days ago, it was a papa lion crouching down to meet his baby cub for the first time. Today, it’s two little kids playfully hitting each other in the face with a trash can lid. The internet is quite wonderful, isn’t it?
The latest viral hit features 2 boys playfully hitting each other with a trash can lid
The current reigning viral video shows two boys in orange and green shirts taking turns around a trash can and playfully whopping one another on the face with the lid multiple times. Although the footage might seem violent from the first glance, every time one of the boys takes a hit to the face, both of them have a giggle. They even have a mini fight over who’s gonna be in charge of pushing the pedal to initiate the blow.
People have shared this video all over the internet, but it was best received on Twitter where users decided to “meme-fy” the boys’ actions. One of the captions read “this is why women live longer than men” together with a laughing emoji. Well, they have a point, don’t they?
