No matter what's at stake, please don't try this challenge, folks.

Yes, kids do "stupid things" but this is downright insane.  There's a brand new challenge introduced on TikTok where people are licking everyday items that are often for public use.  Yes, these include toilet seats and doorknobs.

The challenge was apparently introduced by TikTok user @avalouiise on March 15, 2020.

While her video has since been removed (possibly by TikTok themselves), nothing is ever deleted on the internet. Someone managed to get a copy of the video and has uploaded it onto Twitter.

In case you're wondering if she knows that she might possibly contract the virus, Louise revealed in her subsequent TikTok video that she's aware of the repercussions.

That said, she claimed that she's "totally fine" and doesn't really worry much about COVID-19.  And Louise probably knows this because in later TikTok posts, she claimed that she had "cloroxed" the toilet seat for 40 minutes prior to licking it.

Again, spread the word...not the virus.  Don't try this at home.
