In recent times, it has become more common for social media users to come up with controversial content in order to gain attention from the public. A recent trend that involves some mouth-to-mouth action has been gaining traction on socials lately.
A trio of men came under fire recently after a video of them attempting the “Dry Scooping Challenge” trend on TikTok at a local gym located in Penang made its way online. The video went viral on Twitter after it was reposted by a user named @zua_al_azmi.

In the video, one of the gym-goers was spotted swallowing water in his mouth, before spiting it into another gym mate who was seated on a gym equipment. Meanwhile, another man was also seen swallowing a scoop of pre-workout powder in his mouth. The second guy then proceeded to grab the latter by his shoulder and transfer the same water into his mouth. What is hygiene right?
Unsurprisingly, a lot of local netizens didn’t react too kindly to the viral post. Many of them expressed their disgust with the unhygienic gesture shown by the three individuals. In addition, there were also a few who commented on the dangers of dry scooping for one’s health. To quote Dr. Nimelesh on Twitter, “Dry scooping is bad for your health. Dry scooping and getting people to spit water into your mouth is even worse and awful.”
