Parents post videos showing them throwing slices of cheese at their babies in strange new internet challenge
Parents do strange things sometimes and some even feel the need to post videos of their insane acts on social media. A weird new internet challenge, however, has taken this strange behavior to another level. Parents on various social media platforms are now taking part in the absurd "cheesed challenge" where they make videos of themselves throwing slices of cheese at the faces of babies.
The strange internet trend started on February 28 after a user on Twitter shared a video from Facebook saying: "Just cheesed my lil' brother", the Daily Mail reported.
The user — @unclehxlmes — didn't expect a random video like this to go viral, but it did. The original post had more than eight million views in a short span of time. The video also had multiple comments that were posted offering insane versions of the challenge.
Overwhelmed, @unclehxlmes finally deleted the video and confessed that he had taken it off the social media site and had only shared it as a joke. This, however, did not stop hundreds of people from sharing their own versions of the challenge where they throw a slice of cheese at them.

Some of the babies in the videos start crying the moment they are hit by the cheese but most of them seemed bamboozled by the whole thing. In the comments section, there were many users who slammed those who uploaded videos of themselves throwing cheese at their children.
In an apology note that was posted on his twitter page, @unclehxlmes said that he deleted the video because "it got way out of hand". He also wrote that he didn't expect the simple tweet to get all the attention that it did and that he was not trying to turn it into a trend.
Others, however, only seemed to notice that the babies had various reactions to the cheese throwing. Many users noted that the toddlers seemed pretty excited by the fact that they were being cheesed.
There were also those who posted videos of themselves throwing cheese on their pets if they didn't have babies to do it to. One can only hope that the many slices of cheese that were used in making these videos didn't end up in the trash.
