This summer, a very popular challenge on TikTok was the so-called Milk crate challenge, which was recently banned from publishing on the platform that made the challenge go viral.
The essence of this challenge is to build several pyramids from empty plastic boxes, and then climb these pyramids like a ladder and go down. These videos gained popularity due to a large number of unsuccessful attempts with falls.
The social network TikTok removed the search results for the hashtag #MilkCrateChallenge, explaining its decision by the fact that this is a very dangerous activity. Earlier, several doctors published public messages stating that the Milkcrate challenge is dangerous to the health and even life of users. If you fall, it is easy to fracture your limbs or spine.

Despite removing the Milk crate challenge from TikTok, videos are easy to find on other platforms.
