A bizarre TikTok video that shows a barber using fire to style his customer's hair has gone viral on the internet. The 15 seconds video has garnered 13 million views and starts with the customer sitting on a chair with a pink towel around his shoulder. In the viral video, the barber goes on to set the man's hair on fire and starts to comb his hair with the help of two combs as the fire slowly extinguishes.

A new TikTok challenge dubbed as ‘The outlet challenge’ took the internet by storm. The social media challenge involved people to partially insert their phone chargers in an electric socket. They were required to slide down a penny in the gap remaining between the charger and the socket. The challenge resulted in not just sparks and electrical damage but electrocutions and fires too. It had even led the Massachusetts firefighters to issue an alert.
