This is a life harming game that goes on for 50 days and ends up taking the player’s life in reality. There are no known rules. There are different levels daily up to 50 days in this game which are life-threatening and the last level is to take your own life, i.e., suicide. The initial tasks are as simple as listening to music but as days passes by the levels get harder. If the participant refuses to complete their task, the administrator who controls you and gives you the daily tasks will release, publish, share, or post something extremely personal from their accounts.

In 2012 P&G introduced a new product called Tide Pods which was meant to make laundry easier. Instead, it became viral for consuming it like candy. Initially, there were just rumors of eating these pods until 2015 when The Onion wrote a piece where a child insisted on eating a Tide Pod. Later a meme from Twitter encouraged people to consume it as a joke but it was taken seriously as a challenge and people started posting videos of themselves consuming Tide Pods, which are very poisonous for humans.
