After the Viral Gorilla Glue girl, Gorilla Glue man is trending now due to his stupidity.
Details suggest a Man uses Gorilla Glue to glue cup to his mouth claiming TikToker who put Gorilla Glue in hair ia lying. Calls it the “Gorilla Glue Challenge.” Ends up in hospital.
Watch the video of the man who used Gorilla Glue with the cup and his mouth and ended up in the Emergency room (Er).
Earlier last week, a girl, Tessica Brown, went viral on social media after she accidentally used Gorilla Glue spray onto her hair which resulted her to go through a plastic in order to remove Gorilla Glue from her hair.
Now a man glued a paper cup to his face in what he said was a bid to show that heavy-duty adhesive Gorilla Glue was not as sticky as a recent viral video suggests.
Len Martin had seen the TikTok clip in which fellow-Louisianian Tessica Brown had told how she was hospitalized and had her hair stuck in the same style for a month after using the product, which is used mainly for crafting projects.
Len Martin said he “thought she was just playing around” and “didn’t think it was that serious.”
He has now joined Brown and Gorilla Glue’s makers in warning others not to use it on their bodies, after doctors had to graft off part of his upper lip to remove the cup.
“I was trying to show people that it wasn’t as serious as she [Brown] was making it to be, you know,” he said when asked why he did it by local TV station KLFY.
“I thought I could lick it off, kind of, to moisten it and pull it right off, but that didn’t work though.” He added: “It went backwards, you know.”
Doctors performed what he described as a “painful peeling” to free the cup.
He later posted a video on Facebook of him appearing to glue the cup alongside a photograph of him in a hospital bed with the cup over his mouth.
He will need to keep the area covered for up to three weeks, doctors told him. If it does not heal, he could face surgery to remove the tip of his lip, he said.
Martin, who is a rapper, denied the stunt and accompanying video were a bid to gain attention. “I would never want to stick no Gorilla Glue to my lip and have it stuck there,” he said when the suggestion was put to him.
While his Facebook post included the #gorillagluechallenge hashtag, Martin acknowledged that his stunt had not been part of an existing social media craze, but said such acts are “just a part of social media” and he “didn’t think it was going to go this far.”
He added: “But if it helps, it helps and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t—but that’s not what I did it for. I don’t want to be sitting up here like this. You’ve got Valentine’s Day coming up; I can’t even kiss my own lip.”
