There have been many types of “challenges” on social media that went viral and while some have been for a good cause such as the ice bucket challenge, recently there has been a trend circulating among teenagers known as the “pass-out game” or “skip challenge.”
This dangerous challenge is currently trending among Malaysian teenagers and could potentially cause death. What exactly does it involve?
Well, it is usually done by two or more people where at least one person will push and apply enormous pressure to another person’s chest until he or she is unconscious.
According to FMT, several videos of this challenge has been circulating around on social media and one of them depicts two schoolboys pressing their friend’s chest for a short period of time. They laughingly pressed on tight until the “player” who was being pressed became unconscious. What’s the point of this challenge?
The duo panicked momentarily until the friend recovered and then they continued laughing. This is actually a really dangerous and stupid stunt because when you stop the heart from functioning or cut off oxygen flow the person could suffer from brain damage or stroke. Do you really want to do that?
It is uncertain where this stunt originated from but it has been trending for awhile in other countries and made it to Malaysia recently. A commentator in the video’s voice over said, “Don’t do things that could damage your main organs, kids these days are making jokes more dangerous nowadays. Imagine making headlines in the news because you accidentally killed your friends.”
National Professor’s Council social development and welfare deputy cluster head Prof Dr Mohd Taib Dora also commented on the stunt and explained the dangers, “This dangerous act is crazy and reckless, it could cause death. The teenager might suffer a stroke or (become) paralysed if the brain is deprived of oxygen for more than seven seconds.”

Your life is very precious, don’t do this reckless and dangerous stunt to endanger your life! It can cause death!
