Jason Derulo Tried To Eat Corn Off Of A Power Drill And The Level Of ‘Ouch’ Is Just…

Like many of us practicing social distancing, Jason Derulo is bored and taking part in the modern-American past time of TikTok trends.

Though a bit late to the game, Derulo’s latest TikTok post sees him trying out a trend we saw taking off last year: you take corn on the cob, put it on a drill, and then power up while you try to eat. Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, just wait.

In a recent post to his TikTok account, Derulo shared a video of himself attempting to eat corn off of a drill for the sake of the Gram and things went south real quick.

Don’t try this 😭😭

A post shared by Jason Derulo (@jasonderulo) on

The singer kicked off the video by asking his fans and viewers if they’d ever seen anyone eat corn off of a drill. Speaking about the life hack, Derulo said that he’d always wanted to try it out. The video starts off slowly, with Derulo slowly powering up the drill and then going faster with the drill while he attempts to eat the corn. He keeps going for a few more seconds until he cries out in pain.

When he pulls away he shows that he’s chipped a tooth.

“Don’t try this,” Derulo wrote in a caption on Instagram with two sad emojis.

Users have suggested that Derulo’s chipped tooth might be fake but it’s pretty convincing.

Yeah, we know all about the magic of editing and fake teeth but… it looks pretty insane.

Check out the chipped tooth moment here.

Comments about the big flub were far from easy on Derulo but also quite a bit funny.

“Ooooooooo shit 🤣🤣🤣 “jathun darulo,'” – tydollasign

“Why do I cover my eyes while watching this for 12th times?” – rudybundini

“VerifiedThere’s no way! You would be bleeding! I can’t handle this lmfaooo,” a doubtful TikTok user wrote thekalenallen.

“We need to know! Did you really just take out your 2 front teeth?!?” _thareal_mccoy_wrote begging the question that has the entire internet pulsing with questions today.

This Instagram Page Is Doing The Work To Identify And Expose The People Who Stormed The Capitol

After a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Jan. 6, people immediately started identifying the intruders. Videos have been circulating and people are steadily contacting the FBI to expose them. Instagram page @homegrownterrorists is one of the leading forces in identifying the rioters.

On Jan. 6, people stormed our Capitol building and the American people are demanding justice.

Images of people storming the Capitol building and looting the offices of members of Congress startled people around the world. One of the safest places in the world was overrun by far-right Trump supporters attacking the democratic process. Americans are demanding justice and working together to identify and report as many people to the FBI that were at the Capitol.

The Instagram page is unapologetically encouraging followers to identify people at the Capitol.

Five people died as a result of the riot, two of them were police officers. The Instagram page, run anonymously, is encouraging people to share the photos to their stories to increase the reach. The account might not have any legal power, but it is having some success. There has been more than one person identified through the IG page that has led to people losing jobs and being arrested by the FBI.

The account has disappeared multiple times but always comes back.

The mystery person running the account has expressed concern over their safety. The account has been suspended by Instagram after being reported by multiple people. There has even been some talk about them receiving threats of violence via DMs.

The person who runs the account has mentioned it randomly on their stories but with no real detail. According to recent stories, the person behind the account doesn’t want to antagonize the people sending threats.

The owner of the account did say that they have been contacted by Instagram about the account.

A tweet from HomeGrownTerrorists caught Instagram’s attention and the account was reinstated. However, there was a backup account to keep functioning in case the original got deleted. IG and the account owner reached an agreement where they get to keep the main account and the backup account was permanently banned. No questions asked.

If you want to help or be connected to the cause, you can follow this page on Instagram.

There are a lot of people left to identify and the nation’s law enforcement is bracing for more violence. Capitols in all 50 states are on alert for possible attacks and the National Guard is being mobilized in big numbers for the inauguration. We are not out of the woods when it comes to the threats that have been made.

These Nuns Have Become TikTok Sensations Because of Their Hilarious Videos

When you normally think of a Catholic nun, images probably come to mind of a stern and serious older woman who is quick to scold. But this group of nuns on TikTok go against every one of those stereotypes.

The Daughters of Saint Paul has recently become a TikTok sensation because of their hilarious and playful viral videos.

The Boston-based convent has racked up almost 56k followers from just a handful of videos that they’ve posted to the popular social media platform. The sisters have only posted three videos, but they’ve already gotten over 965.k likes and 6 million views.

The sisters have posted videos of themselves dressed up as ghosts while wandering around the convent grounds, what they’ve dubbed the “Holy Ghost photo shoot”.

There is another surprisingly funny video of themselves recreating the internal struggle of resisting Satan. The video is captioned “Thinking about giving into temptation” and set to the TikTok favorite song “Is This Available”. More than anything, its the committed performances of the two nuns that elevate the video to hilarious levels.

And of course, the Daughters of Saint Paul also posted the “This or That challenge” set to the ’80s Run DMC classic “It’s Tricky”. In this one, a group of the nuns split off into different groups based on what they prefer. The categories are super specific: “Morning prayer” is pitted against “Evening prayer” and “rosary” is pitted against “divine mercy chaplet.”

The sisters seem to have struck a chord with viewers because the videos are wholesome, lighthearted, but most of all, unexpected.

The joy and playfulness of the Daughters of Saint Paul have made them bonafide celebrities of the TikTok world. Their comment section abounds with praise like “This is EVERYTHING–y’all are the best,” and “This is so wholesome I love it here.”

Commenters also refer to their account as “NunTok”. There are also people asking for the nuns to pray for specific issues in their lives–like conceiving a baby or passing a test. It truly is one of the oddest corners of the internet.

The account appears to be run by Sister Bethany, a young media-savvy nun who has her own popular TikTok page.

In one informative TikTok, Sister Bethany explains why this particular convent of nuns is so present on social media, saying that they are “media nuns” and they use their talents to create content for their faith. But they also have guidelines about what they post.

“We the sisters are always asking ourselves, ‘Is this a good use of time?’ ‘Am I putting out things that are good, true, and beautiful?’,” said Sister Bethany. “And those are things we can all ask ourselves. And those are the ways we moderate our social media use.” No matter your beliefs, that’s definitely some great advice!
