SUBSCRIBE for Every Tasty Theory! ►►

I can’t believe I need to say this but DON’T EAT chicken cooked in NyQuil! Like Tide Pods and questionable Pink Sauce, there are things that are just not meant to be ingested. Today I’m going to explain why the NyQuil chicken challenge is dangerous and why we need to stop trying viral food hacks that we KNOW are bad for us just for the views. Safety first and let’s dive in!

    The way that the normally very chill Matpat (well when he’s not playing games) got _audibly furious_ as this video went on at how irresponsible the media is and how they’re gonna get kids hurt by not doing their jobs just goes to show how serious this entire thing is

    And yet we wonder why teenagers and “younger” people are always stereotyped against. Sure, some trends are genuinley stupid, but when the media presents things like this that are meant to be jokes in such a serious light, is when the real problem ensues. Thanks MatPat for presenting this issue at face value with none of the drama and exageration that the news seems to put on it.

      @0816 M3RC Jokes are not supposed to be funny necesarly, some jokes are supposed to be unfunny on porpouse because the unfunnienes of the joke becomes a metajoke that is actually funny.

      Here is the full clip :Matt exposed for torturing and killing a puppy *sickening*

      What’s funny tho is that there are also a lot of dumb and stupid shits in a lot of the older generations’ time as teenagers, the same way thing as ours. We just don’t know or can’t find it now since the Internet haven’t been invented yet or it has been but not used for the general public.

      when “older” people are on a wider platform and misrepresenting the stories, that’s how a lot of “younger” people can be stereotyped against. there are definitely a bunch of dumb ones, just watch any of the random street question videos, but the majority at least have the common sense to understand satire vs a real trend and (hopefully) don’t follow such stupidity

  3. Sparkling Lemon says:

    In all seriousness, I appreciate how thoroughly you researched this topic. It takes so much longer to research the truth than it does to misinterpret or misrepresent it.
    And for everyone else out there, please remember that medicine should never ever be misused. And if you know anyone who needs to be taught this, please let them know. It’s important enough to have those kinds of conversations even if they are awkward.

    “It’s fine; we’re using Dayquil” had me bursting out laughing.

    That said, this video didn’t go the direction I thought it would, but it was still entertaining and informative. Thank you, Matt

  5. Kondase says:

    This is the first I’m hearing of this “trend”. If the news networks can’t even get this right it makes me very fearful on what else they are getting wrong. Another reminder that we all need to do our own homework.

  6. Cyber Jackal says:

    This is… exactly what happened with Tide Pods. You have to hear about it to even consider trying it, so the more people hear about it (the more it’s reported, even if you’re being told *not* to do it), the more people will have the idea to try it.

  7. Leo Atlas Garcia says:

    As a teenager who was mainly raised by my grandma who watches the news 24/7 and barely has idea of what the internet is, I can’t even describe how many of this fake/exaggerated stories the tv reports on have gotten me in trouble for doing absolutely nothing other than watching some youtubers that have nothing to do with those reports/”challenges”. The actual fear it gave my grandma for my safety was tremendous every single time. And, of course, is never easy to explain to people that get their news from the tv that the news actually do lie to get people to watch it, is insane.

  8. Dummkopf says:

    thank you, matt. i was just sitting down for a hot plate of NyQuil Chicken when I saw this video. absolute life saver.

  9. Anyone Bluejay says:

    I was surprised to see the NyQuil chicken stuff appearing all over the news recently, because I remembered seeing this kind of thing AGES ago and it was all funny haha but it wasn’t blowing up like this. And now it is much more of a potential danger than it was!

    It would be cool to see an episode on why people have different reactions to the same taste. Ie Why do I hate peanut butter but my parents love it?
