It’s high time social media platforms chunk some of the bizarre, creepy trends and hashtags people cook up before it appears in the view of the public eye. Just when you thought the #Kiki challenge, #Bird Box challenge or throwing cheese slices on their toddlers is preposterous enough, a new trend where you French Kiss cows alongside the hashtag #KuhKussChallenge trend evolves to beat them all.
Apparently, the people of Austria are snogging their horned, four legged creatures in this new ‘Cow Kiss Challenge’. A Swiss app called Castl launched the #KuhKussChallenge ('Cow Kiss Challenge') on Wednesday, encouraging users in Switzerland and other German-speaking countries to kiss cows - 'with or without tongues' - to raise money for charity, the Daily Mail reports.
Following the trend, people can be see performing the tongue-exchange trend with cows on YouTube. As we saw it coming from afar, the Austrian Government have been forced to issue a warning on this preposterous challenge calling it a 'dangerous nuisance' on Thursday.
Austrian Agriculture Minister Elisabeth Koestinger branded the challenge nonsensical added, 'Pastures and meadows are not petting zoos - actions like these could have serious consequences.'
'Actions like this challenge fly in the face of our efforts to promote co-existence on the pastures. I simply can't understand it,' said Koestinger.
